January 2020 Something New!! Saturday Workshops

In June we experimented with a small group Saturday workshop titled, “We Can Build a Snowman”. Positive feedback provided an incentive to continue with small group format (10 maximum). It is a great way to enjoy a Saturday with 10 other guild gals you may not know and not feel intimidated by a large group. We all have lots of projects started at workshops; however, these workshops are designed to get most of a quilt top ready to quilt in the one day. Hopefully you will also learn a few new techniques! There will be a little homework to do before each class.This coming year we will have 3 more small group workshops, each with a seasonal theme. Saturday workshops taught by guild member Kris Ricci.
