  • Upcoming Workshops

    The workshops offer a wide varity of interesting techniques to choose from and the instructors are wonderful. I am sure you will be just as pleased as I am with the young ladies that have agreed to come and work with all of us. Kate Mulberger, Barbara Dann, Susan Forsythe and myself have classes set up that are fun, interesting and full of techniques. The workshops will add to our quilter's knowledge bank right here in our own back yard at a cost that is affordable. I hope you all will be able to find something that peaks your interest and you hop on this educationial journey of 2 fun filled days. Once you decide which classes you want to sign up for, you can securely register online or come by Girtie's Shop and check out what Gary has been up to.
