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 (8/11), assembly (9/8) and finishing (10/13) - 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: In addition to the $5 fee for the fabric kit, each session is free for members and $2.50 for non-members.

Sign up online here, where you can register for all three sessions at once, or just the first session individually. Please note that you must attend the first session and receive your materials in order to complete the second and third sessions.

If you have any questions or want more information, please contact Linda Lipscomb by email or at 855-649-1861 x204.
