Instructor: Karen Driessen
Join us for a six-week beginning quilt-making course lead by a professional instructor. You will learn to piece up to nine different blocks which can then be used to construct a table topper or small-size quilt top. During the first class, we will be covering basic sewing machine operation, use of a rotary cutter, ruler and cutting mat, and quarter-inch seam tips. You will also have time to select and cut fabric for your blocks. This would be the perfect time to make a holiday table runner!
