Class Schedule

This class is a process class, in addition to creating a project it is meant to teach you the basic steps you need to take to start quilting. Create a 34"x 34" table topper or baby quilt, depending on your choice of fabrics and colors. Karen Feeney has made this project as a baby quilt many times, but by changing the focus fabric to something more traditional or kitchen-y it can be used for a completely different purpose... a table topper! This 2 session class will be held on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Instructor: Karen Feeney

When:  NEW DATES: Thursday, September 8th and September 15th

Time: 10:30-1:30

Class Fee: $35.00 per session ($70 total)
