feather quilt by allison glass


Jackie Erickson
Monday, January 19
2pm – 5 pm

Anyone for a little archery? That’s what I think of when I see this quilt. This is an easy foundation pieced quilt. Choose fabrics that reflect your personality or your outdoor surroundings.  I used Valori Wells’ new fabric line “In The Bloom” because the fabrics are so bright and cheery. This is an excellent quilt for a quilter who would like to try foundation piecing but might be a little apprehensive about it.

African Market Basket
Janet Storton
Saturday, Jan 31

In the rural villages of Africa the women take left over garden produce to the daily market to sell or trade for other goods carrying them to and from in a basket on their heads. Often they can be seen balancing vegetables on their heads while carrying babies on their backs. Janet adapted an old pattern by Ann Weber to create a more authentic pattern of the African market baskets, honoring the women who carry out this daily chore.

We will reschedule the class for another day, based on classroom and instructor availability.

A Friendly Reminder For A Healthy Classroom
If you have a cold, flu symptoms, or a lingering cough, please be considerate of fellow classmates and the instructor by staying home and taking care of yourself. Call the store in advance to let us know you are not feeling well, and we will do what we can to accommodate your illness.
Along the same lines, we have many students who are sensitive to perfumes and scented lotions; please avoid wearing such products to class.
