OQB has a fabulous staff of teachers ready, willing and very qualified to provide instruction for all levels of quilters and sewers.  To help ensure the class you want to take is a "go", please sign-up early.  Waiting until the last few days before a class is to start risks cancellation and disappointment to both the teachers and students.  By registering early you will ensure your class of choice is a "go", have time to gather supplies and do pre-class work if necessary.  Teachers are notified of class cancellation 3 days prior to the class date.
As a reminder, class fees are fully refundable if class is cancelled by OQB if teachers "minimum attendance" is not met.

We are always on the look-out for new techniques, classes, instructors and truly want our fabulous classroom filled with students every hour OQB is open.
