Class Schedule
September – December 2018

 Kids are all back in school freeing up time for thinking about upcoming holidays and quilting/sewing projects.  We have had a dry spell for a while now and I’m hoping that the fall will not be short on color outdoors – so let’s be sure to bring in a lot of color in our autumn decorating and quilting projects, not to mention all those holiday gifts we want to start now!  Check out our upcoming class sessions and join us for some fun times!    Additional sessions can be added – let us know if you would like to have a special session for you and your friends.
