In addition to our popular quilting classes in Albuquerque, NM, we also are proud of our group activities and special programs that help to establish and maintain a vibrant quilting community. From monthly meetings to yearlong projects, you can get involved with our quilting activities and accomplish great things with a group of quilting enthusiasts.
 

Our Special Guided Quilting Programs Include:

  • Quilt Works Saturday Sampler: At The Quilt Works, Inc., we’re passionate about getting you involved with a community of likeminded quilt lovers. This is why we are proud to host the Saturday Sampler Program. On the second Saturday of every month, we will get together to display a block completed over the past month. At the end of the year, we will have finished a quilt together.
  • Block of the month: Join our Block of the Month program. Each month you will get to choose a free pattern for that month and can purchase a kit. You can work independently or with other group members to create a beautiful block for every month of the year. You’ll be proud of what you can accomplish in just 12 months.


We have a special guest coming in August!

Join "Dancing with the Wall Variations" with Irene Roderick on August 11, 12 & 13, 2022 

We are incredibly excited to announce that quilter extraordinaire Irene Roderick will be teaching a three-day in-person workshop in Albuquerque at The Quilt Works on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, August 11, 12, and 13, 2022.  Over these three days, Irene will teach her intuitive and spontaneous process and techniques and guide to express your own unique creative voice.

Irene will teach her “Dancing with the Wall” workshop. A fast-paced workshop introducing the method of building a quilt one piece of fabric at a time. You will receive “tools” to use as building blocks, lots of individual attention, tips for piecing, composition and color. You will let your self-conscience and creativity drive your process to a unique expression of your aesthetic and process. At the end of the workshop you will have most of a small quilt finished and an amazing sense of accomplishment!


The techniques used to make the components of your quilt range from simple strip piecing to more advanced curves, as does the engineering involved in putting the designs together. But the workshop is still suitable for quilters of all levels of experience, since you can choose your own comfort level both in the components you make and the final design.

If you have never taken a workshop with Irene before now, this will be an unforgettable experience. If you have danced with the wall before, you are welcome to repeat the experience or work with Irene to choreograph a piece using your own techniques and process (Hence the “Variations” in the workshop offering)

Let go of your inhibitions! Tap into your creativity!

The workshop will run from 9am-4pm with an hour lunch break. Price is $210 for the three days.
