Workshops

You will be able to sign up for one of two workshops (they will be the same) from 7-8pm on Friday, November 6th or Friday, November 13th. These events are optional, you can make the quilt block on your own if you like. During the workshop, Brenda will introduce textiles, quilts, and the background of the project. Then she will demonstrate different techniques for creating your block, followed by questions/discussion.
