BPQ Workshop Registration



Registration for all workshops is on a first-come, first-served basis with payment in full required to reserve your space.  Members are given the first opportunity to register, starting 4 months before each class.  Non-members may then sign up 2 months before each class if space is available. 


How to Register for a BPQ Zoom Workshop

Send your payment with a note indicating which class you are registering for to the Programs Chair.  Please use the address listed in the newsletter or on the members' only page as it is a different address than the public BPQ mailbox.


Please make the checks out to "Block Party Quilters".


Once registered you will receive an e-mail with further instructions regarding class format, signing in to Zoom and any other necessary information from the BPQ Programs Chair.

Registrations as always will be space available, first come, first served.

How to Register for a BPQ In Person Workshop

Registration for each workshop opens 3 months before the class.  Currently BPQ classes are only open to members.  Registrations must be mailed to the Programs Chair at the address listed in the newsletter or on the members' only page.  No signups will be taken at the in-person general meetings.

2022 Workshop Registration 

How to Register for 2020 Workshops


Registration for our 2022 workshops will be entirely by mail again this year.  As the pandemic still seems to be taking its toll, we recognize that some members may not want to come to our winter in-person meetings and we want everyone to have the same opportunity to sign up for our workshops.  Our March workshop will be by zoom, then we are hoping/expecting to resume with in-person workshops starting in May.   


Registration will open for each workshop BY MAIL on the date noted in each workshop summary.  (Generally the 1st of the month, 3 full months before each class).  Please put your payment and class registration info in the mail no sooner than the specified opening date (requests should NOT be postmarked prior to the 1st)   

Include the following with your payment: 

  • your name

  • which instructor/class/date you are requesting

  • your email

  • for in-person classes, whether you will bring your own machine or would like to use a machine provided by Issaquah Sewing & Vacuum

  • if there are multiple workshops offered with the same instructor, indicate 1st choice and if 2nd or 3rd choice is also acceptable.

Payment can be by cash or check, made out to “Block Party Quilters” for the class fee only (do not include any instructor lab fees or kits in your BPQ check). One check per person per class request Please don't combine checks in case one of the classes you want is already full.

New Location for our In-Person 2022 Workshops!


Issaquah Sewing & Vacuum is building out a new classroom in their shop/showroom at 1180 NW Gilman Blvd in Issaquah.  They expect it to be ready early Spring 2022, and owner Eddie Schultz has very generously offered the use of their facility for our BPQ workshops.  The space will be designed specifically for workshops such as ours, with 6’ tables for each student and access to shared ironing and cutting stations in their main store area.  Even better, for those of you whom do not want to have to lug your personal sewing machine to class, they will make demo machines available to our students!  Due to pandemic restrictions, for 2022, space will be limited to 12 students per class.

Please join us in thanking Eddie and his team when you next visit their store.
