In each of our series of five skill builder classes students will learn a new quilting skill which they can apply in building a block.

Attend all the classes in the series and you will have beautiful blocks which you can replicate and build into a quilt, alternatively pick and choose the blocks which interest you and just attend those classes....the quilting world is your oyster!
