Catch-All Bag Class

Margaret Grice teaches great classes on totes and bags in addition to some quilt and table topper patterns AND she is also going to teach the much anticipated TUFFET class! 
Sign ups are open for all of these classes. 
Tonight however she was teaching a bag class and these ladies were working hard!
 The young lady above is enrolled in her second class at the shop! She is also in the Beginner Nine Patch class with Patsy! I think she has the fabric bug!! And here she is below with her mom who is taking the class as well! Sharing the love of sewing and quilting together! What a great thing!
Even fellow teacher Kathy Ryan wanted in on the Catch All Bag class! See her below working on her beautiful bag.
 Here is Margaret working one on one with a student on her bag.

Stupendous Stitching Workshop

This past Wednesday we had the pleasure of hosting the Tri-County Quilt Guild workshop taught by Carol Ann Waugh author of Stupendous Stitching.
Carol Ann's beautiful examples:
Twenty-one quilters were able to enjoy the offered workshop with a nationally known speaker and author. 
Students had a great time settling into our classroom for the day and doing some really beautiful work themselves!

Carol Ann would introduce each new technique to the group as shown and then as they were practicing she could work around the room and give one-on-one help as needed. 
Fabulous class, beautiful work produced!
Maybe some of these techniques will be seen in the 2016 Tri-County Quilt Show? If you are interested in her book, we have a few of them left at the shop for purchase!
