Full Day Workshops
are designed for a maximum of 25 students, provided there is adequate workspace for each student.  The quilt shown for each workshop is only an example.  Students can choose from a variety of patterns and blocks provided in class.  All students will not make the same quilt. 

Many of the workshops involve use of sewing machines and at least two irons—thus adequate electrical wiring in the classroom is essential.  All full day workshops have hands-on exercises and experimentation in class, in either fabric and sewing or designing on grids and diagrams provided for the class.  


The quilt shown for each workshop is an example using the block or style of the workshop and is not the only quilt design that will be presented for that workshop.  Click on link for each workshop to see additional quilts that will be shown for design inspiration.
