This is the second part of a three-session course teaching beginners how to make a quilt sampler. You must attend the first session (on November 10) to get your materials and begin your square before you can take this second course.
Have you ever looked at a beautiful Civil War quilt and wondered what life might have been like for a woman living back then? Why did she choose those fabrics and how did she find the time to work on it? Completing a quilt can be overwhelming for a lot of us. Just starting one is daunting. We can help with that. This project was created for the beginner. No sewing experience or sewing machine is required. Participants will receive a kit ($5) of pre-cut fabric in their choice of colors – reds, blues, greens or browns – plus a needle and thread. Linda Lipscomb will conduct a series of 3 workshops - getting started (11/10), assembly (12/8) and finishing (1/12) - to help you through each step. When you are finished, you will have a beautiful quilt square, hand-made by you, to keep or give as a gift. Cost: free for members -$2.50 each for non-members.
If there is enough interest, a new three-session series will begin again in February, so don't despair if you missed out on the first session of this series!
