    Starting September 14- Quilting

    Thursday 1:00opm – 3:00 p.m.

    If you are a quilter or have always wanted to learn quilt making, this class is for you!

    Bonnie Dorian and Sharon Stackpole will co-lead this class although there will be other knowledgeable advanced quilters present each week willing to provide guidance and to share the enjoyment of creating a quilt with the beginners.  “Show and Tell” will be a highlight of this quilting class.

    No quilting experience necessary but participants must have prior sewing experience and be familiar with using a sewing machine in order to join the class. This class has limited openings.
