January Member Led Workshops

Join us on January 26th for our first workshop of 2019 led by our very own Melanie and Amy.

Morning Session
Melanie will be teaching Creative Walking Foot: You don’t need to be a free motion master to make beautiful designs and texture on your quilts– you just need your walking foot and a little creativity! We’ll explore techniques to create both planned and  improvised angles and waves, then make mini quilts that can be used for placemats or pillows. Along the way, we’ll discuss technique and strategy for applying these techniques to bigger projects.
