“Quiltmaking for Beginners”

…a 3-part series of workshops for beginning quiltmakers -or- for those who want a refresher course. $40 per 3 hr. workshop = $120 total cost.

Learn to properly make a quilt – from start to finish.
In this 3-part series, I will teach you the basics of quiltmaking…from choosing fabrics to using the proper tools to precision piecing and much more. Lots of Tips & Tricks, too! By the end of this 3-part series, you will have completed a lap-size or baby quilt – – one to be proud of!

The first class meeting will be determined by the instructor. Workshops #2 and #3 will be determined by the class as a whole. There will be homework in between class sessions.

Class size is limited! Advance registration required.
