Program Speakers and Workshop
Schedule for 2019
No matter how long you have been quilting,
you can always learn something new. Workshops give us the opportunity
to try a new technique and not invest a lot. You can learn new ways
to do things. If you are new to quilting it is a great opportunity
to not only learn from the workshop but from your fellow quilters.
Never stop learning! It's also a great way to have a day of fun!
