Many of the classes we offer require you to purchase a book or pattern.

In doing so, you are supporting the creative efforts of the hard-working designers who develop our favorite quilt patterns and encourage them to continue to publish and create. Thank you for your cooperation and consideration!

If the Granary cancels a class, a full refund will be given.
