Scrappy Mesh Notion Bag:

I’ll be teaching you how to use your scraps— mile a minute method and sew up a zipper notion bag.  You’ll be able to see inside because of the mesh screen on the front. 

Having a little notion bag for quick grabbing and sewing on the go is a must for any stitcher. Not only will this notion bag help you keep organized and your supplies at your fingertips, it will help you use up your ever growing scrap pile!

You’ll learn the mile a minute technique to make up this notion bag.

It also features a mesh front and zipper closure, so you can see what’s inside and keep it all together.

My class will be Friday March 15th at 5pm MST.  Cannot wait!

  • Carolyn Baker

    I am a newbie to quilting. Currently finished 3 basic pattern quilts for beginners. In love with the concept of leaving a lasting memory for my children, grandchildren and friends. What a legacy.

  • Rosalee

    Wow, this sounds great! I have made a few quilts, perhaps 20, but still learning. Thanks for the chance to win a ticket!

  • Amy

    I’ve made about 15 quilts and definitely still learning. My mother has made too many to count and she says that she is still learning. I think that is a great thing!

  • Sunshine Amthauer

    I WOULD love to quilt in this situation!!!! I teach sewing and beginning quilting. I have done about 15 quilts and would love to do more!!!!

  • Barbara Bischof

    25+ quilts
    What fun a “scheduled” virtual quilting bee over International Quilting weekend!

  • Debby in Upstate NY

    I made my first quilt in high school, over 30 years ago! I used cardboard templates and scissors to cut the fabrics. The square patches were all leftover fabrics from my Gran’s scrap bag. Cotton, wool, linen, even sheer polyester curtain fabrics. The curtain sheers held up surprisingly well for years. I used a 5/8” s.a. because that’s what I learned in home ec. The back was a bed sheet and I folded the front over the edges instead of binding it. There have been so many changes since then, and it’s great to see some of my naive mistakes coming back to the quilting world as acceptable techniques. I love learning new things and still am learning new things in this wonderful art form and would love to win. In all these years there is so much I still haven’t tried. Quick word to the newbies- there are no quilt police, and I could make all of my mistakes over again and still make it work, except for one: no curtain sheer fabric! It had to be replaced due to shredding!

  • Vickie

    I so need to learn how to put a zipper in for the mesh notions pouch! All the projects/classes look like great information

  • Pam Rickard

    The Mod Bee Quilting Conference looks very exciting. I have made about 12 quilts in complete form but probably have 5 quilts that need finished. I really enjoy designing quilts.

  • Peggy L

    I guess I am a beginner even though I’ve made quite a few of my own garments. This would be a nice way to spend a weekend!

  • Monica Burton

    I’m still fairly new to quilting. I started about a year ago with about 8 quilts under my belt. I’m scared to count how many tops I’ve pieced.

  • Lisa

    Learned the rotary technic in 2001. Would have probably never quilted otherwise. Been sewing since my first pink Zigzag machine, circa 1970. Around the time I learned to read. I was blessed with a home pro, my mother. She made everything, including my Dad’s suits. I’ve made a ton of small quilted projects but only a few larger ones.

  • Maureen Heck

    I am coming off 8 months of a serious shoulder injury and surgery. I haven’t even been near my quilting stuff, but in looking over the offerings for this course I am seriously tempted to try something. Beautiful fabric here I come!

  • Marlyn B

    I have made 25+ quilts. I enjoy making different quilts some are more challenging than others and that is what makes it interesting.

  • Elizabeth

    I am still a beginner as I started in September 2018. I finished one lap quilt just in time to give as a Christmas gift. I have been taking several classes per month learning how to use rulers but I am definitely hooked on quilting

  • Janeen Honsey

    I did a little bit of quilting about 30+ years ago, and am just starting to get back to it.

  • Laurie Curry

    Just starting! Have all materials and just retired, but finding it hard to get started. I have trouble just with cutting out the material; they don’t come out even!

  • Karen H.

    I have been quilting for about 5 years and made 150 or so quilts and small projects. I am still learning and would love to take this class.

    I’ve been quilting since 1981 and have made more quilts than I can count (i.e. I didn’t keep track the first few years)

  • Mary

    I have been quilting off/on for about 35 years. I quilt mostly for gifts; baby wedding, life events. I would love to win registration for this event.

  • Laurie Taylor

    I’ve started 10 to 25 quilts … but that’s not saying I’ve finished most of them!

  • Barbara Rosa

    I remember buying a quilt pattern at the bicentennial in 1976. I completed my first quilt in 1978. I think I have made between 10 and 25 quilts. I have never won a prize, but I might die with the most fabric!

  • Janet Best

    I have been quilting a long time, but I’m not sure how many quilts I’ve made. I will guess the 10-25 range.

  • Karen Wells

    This sounds WONDERFUL! Not sure how much I would be able to participate, but would love to watch, learn and share as I’m undergoing Chemo treatments and its really taking a toll. I’ve been quilting 10-25 years and love it. My true happy place is my sewing room. PATCHWORKPOSSE


    i grew up with quilts and i am at least a 4th generation quilter…. BUT i didn’t make my first quilt until 1999 at 47 years old. mom got to where she couldn’t make them anymore and i needed new couch quilts!

  • Janet Greenslade

    I still consider myself to be a beginner, made a few, still lots of room to learn more. =)

    I have been quilting for 50+ years but there is always so much to learn. New techniques, new patterns, new tools. Love it more everyday.

  • Julie Spear

    Wowsers!! LOOK at all of the quilty goodness!! I would love to attend i just dont think its in the budget, tho… so fingers crossed I’m a winner!!! I am a pretty new quilter, just over a year, but i am super passionate to the point of obsession!! I have been sewing forever, but for some reason never thought i was interested in quilting? Now its ALL I want to do, to the point that I have pretty much lost interest in ang of my other hobbies, LOL!! thanks for the great opportunity to win, and good luck with your class!!

  • Brenda

    Forgot to tell you how long I’ve been quilting! That would be 30+ years and 25+ quilts. And how many do I have?? One bed size and a couple of wall hangings!! I just keep sharing the love!! LOL

  • Bette Miller

    Hi, I have sewn off and on since I was a little girl, first learning how to make Barbie doll clothes on my Mother’s old black (and HEAVY) portable Montgomery Ward sewing machine. I still have that same machine and it sews beautifully! I am learning how to quilt through a local quilting group called “Quilts For Kids”. This has been a Godsend for me. I can learn quilting techniques with other gals who have been quilting for years, and it’s all free advice. I have been with this group for 1 1/2 yrs. and I’m loving it! I’m taking what I learn with this group and making my own lap-sized quilts at home. Most of my quilts have been gifts, lovingly made to brighten someone’s day. I am a disabled worker, so making these quilts has brightened my day as well! So far, I have made 8 quilts with the group & 12 on my own.

  • Melissa W.

    This conference is so exciting and I would love to be able to “attend.” I’ve been quilting for about 3.5 years, and have made roughly 12-15 quilt tops and 4-6 complete quilts. I started quilting when I was diagnosed with an incurable yet very manageable cancer, and was going thru chemo. I needed something to occupy my mind that wouldn’t wear me out physically, and quilting was the perfect thing! Because of the cancer, I deal with chronic pain and chronic fatigue. Those two things make getting out of the house or planning things to do very very difficult. I never know, day to day, how I’m going to feel, which is why I haven’t been able to attend any type of quilting convention, or classes. That’s why this conference is so absolutely perfect! Being able to sew and quilt and meet new quilters at the same time, that would make me happy!

  • Sandra J Davis

    I’ve completed one quilt and I am working on my second. Top completed. Just need to sandwich and quilt. Yay!!!

  • Elizabeth Soldwish

    I am somewhat a beginner when it comes to quilting. I did a twin size one and a couple of placemats for a sewing class in high school, but I am getting back into it after several years of not even thinking about quilts. I look forward to learning more advanced techniques and the modern approach to quilts that is showing up in the quilting world.

  • Ella Brewer

    Would love to attend. I’ve made about 25+ Quilts, table runners and wall hanging. I’ve gotten to several Quilt Challenges online and learning to Motion Quilt on my home machine.

  • Becky

    I’ve been quilting for two or three years and I’ve made 10-25 quilts including regular quilts, wall quilts and small quilted projects.

  • Lela Schneider

    This Mod Bee Conference sounds like so much fun! Great projects, great teachers! And best of all, online for everyone to enjoy. I am in the “10-25 Quilts” category, having made a few for charity (Relay for Cancer and Quilt of Valor). I am always looking for new projects and new techniques!

  • Dianne Mann

    This new idea is great! Anxious to get started for this 3 day fun-fest. I have been quilting for
    only a year.

  • Gill MacGregor

    3 completely finished quilts, about 6 tops finished waiting to be quilted and a few more partially assembled!

  • Michelle

    I have not quilted before and it is something I really want to try. I bought an embroidery/ sewing machine and really want to learn to make quilts for my children, grandchildren and family. It has always impressed me with some of the ideas people have.

  • Linda

    I have been Quilting for 5 years but still have a lot to learn.I have never taken a on line class but would love to start with this one. I feel I would learn so much more than what I do now.

  • Susan Nairn
