Technique Class - Picture Piecing
Friday, March 24th
10:30 - 4:30
Skill Level: Intermediate
Instructor: Judy Bryan
Picture Piecing is a unique technique that Cynthia England has developed to achieve detailed quilt imagery. Many quilters assume it is just another name for paper piecing or foundation piecing, but Cynthia’s approach is much more! While similar to these techniques in that it uses paper and straight seams, Picture Piecing has several differences, allowing quilters to achieve detailed imagery more efficiently, with less frustration and fabric waste.

This class is a prerequisite to take more difficult classes that will be scheduled using this technique.

Diva Wallet
Saturday, March 25th
10:30 - 4:30
Cost: $25.00
Instructor: Peggie (Midge)
Certainly one of the top projects and classes of all times! The metal clasp makes this wallet stylish and fun. Plus, with Midge as your teacher, you are sure to have fun!

Wedding Star - Intermediate Paper Piecing
