The classes and lecture in May seem to have been a huge success. Thank you to Julia and Frances and Pat for all their hard work.

JUNE 28, 2018 - Kay Butler
“Snowflake Blessing”
10-4; class fee $25/$35;fee for the pattern and a kit which includes background fabric and the 3 blues on the supply list is $20 (you supply the remaining supplies on the list). If you prefer to use your own fabric and colors the fee for the pattern alone is $10. This class focuses on hand applique using a back basting method. You’ll love the fact that this method eliminates the use of templates. To quote Kay, “Once I learned this method I rarely use any other.” BE SURE TO BRING A WATER SOLUBLE BLUE MARKER, A THIMBLE AND YOUR OTTE LIGHT IF YOU HAVE ONE.
