Textile/Quilting Open Studio

Beginners to advanced textile artists are welcome to come create in the Lumberyard Arts Center. Bring your supplies and projects, we have the space and expertise! We also have introductory projects for those with no experience but who are curious to explore. Free for all.

In 2019, the Kansas Senate passed Resolution 1711 designating Baldwin City the Quilt Capital of Kansas for a multiplicity of reasons. Did you know, Baldwin City  has the oldest quilt show in the state of Kansas and one of the oldest running full-service quilt shops in the nation, Quilters' Paradise? Furthermore, Baldwin City's relationship with its international sister city, Riviersonderend, South Africa, is centered around the exchanging of quilts. Quilting is a time-honored intergenerational tradition that harnesses hand and machine technology to create, play and innovate. Visit Quilters' Paradise and the Lumberyard Arts Center. We work together to bring you classes, workshops and other textile art experiences.
