This session is perfect for everyone! You're going to learn the tips and tricks and the easier way to do things. This is a mini session for those of you that have a basic understanding of quilting but need/want to get better. This class is full of the tips and tricks. You just need to bring the fabric required! You'll make a small sampler based on the squares you'll make. We suggest turning it into a hot pad so you have a function reminder of how to do these things perfectly!
If you don't want to drag down your machine, that's fine, just bring your supplies. We will have a few machines set up that can be shared.
