Candyce Grisham

This is Candy's most popular workshop, and she describes it as a modern update for making a variety of Dresden plate designs using a single template.  The class will cover 4 different variations of edge finishes.  Size variations are endless! You will learn to sew the plates by machine and mix and match your edge finishes as you wish.  The workshop is designed to be a technique class, letting you determine how many plates, what sizes, and what finishes, and whatever layout you desire. 

Cost will be $30 per person; and you will need to buy a pattern @ $10.
You will also need an 18 degree ruler, and fabric from your stash.

Note:  Candy will bring some rulers for sale, and Kristin will also try to arrange loans from some of our members who already own one.

Amish Houses

Monique Jacobs

Take Monique’s 6-hour workshop to begin this sweet lap quilt, finishing at 51” x 73”. The simple but effective design gives a graphic punch in traditional Amish colors. But imagine it as a street scene from anywhere you’ve been, as Dutch row houses or in Caribbean pastels, or the tidy cottages along an Irish lane. You can use any colors to create your own village. Pattern required.
