Classes and Events

Please note: During the Covid 19 Pandemic, most of our spring events are either cancelled or postponed. Please call to verify if you have question regarding any of our events and be well!

Adel Quilting & Dry Goods hosts a variety of events throughout the year,

each with it's own teaching component and free demonstrations.

 Block of the Month Programs - Visit our February Fresh Beginnings Party for the big reveal of our new projects.

Several block of the month programs keep us all on our toes.  We like to offer a little something for everyone from intricate hand applique to quick sew quilts from pre-cut strips.



Gathering near Panora, IA at Lake Panorama, we sponsor three retreats each year, appropriately named Ladies of the Lake Quilt Retreat. The first retreat of the year is in the spring and second and third retreats run back to back in the fall. 


 Open Sew

Once a month, we sponsor two days of stitching and chatting at the Adel Library. Starting at 10 am and ending when the last stitch of the day is made. Come for one day or both. The room is safely secured overnight so you can feel comfortable leaving your machine and sewing supplies to return for a second day of sewing. Cutting and pressing stations are provided and the coffee pot will be on. Bring a snack to share, your option. No fee. Usually scheduled for the 2nd Thursday and Friday each month, watch our Events Calendar as some months vary, based on availability of the space.


Teaching is part of our daily business plan. We have demonstrations available at all times to show basic quilting as well as hand piecing and a large variety of other techniques. All of our events also have teaching components. 



Quilters love to gather and share.  Quilt Circle of Friends meets in the shop on the 3rd Monday evening of each month. Sister's of the Cloth meets three times each year at the Adel Public Library on the third Saturday of the month, July, September and November.
