Lecture: This lecture is about how to get your scraps in order and how to make them accessible for you to easily use them to sew into your quilt without much stress at all. Most important is how you as a quilter can learn how to control your scarps in your quilts. It’s really EASY!!!

Workshop Coordinators

Mark and I are so excited to be your local Wo​rkshop Coordinators. We have had many of you approach us offering workshops in lots of different areas. We are hoping to have monthly workshops of some sort. Half-day workshops will be $12 and full-day $20. Locations and times will vary due to availability and instructor requests. Any kit fees will be paid directly to the instructor and are in addition to the workshop fee. Hopefully, you have all read the new instructor payment Guidelines in the last newsletter. Here are some pictures from former Workshops.  If you have any to share, please send them to [email protected].
