Beginners Combo

This class is a combination of Basic Beginners and Beginners and Beyond. As beginners finish the classes offered them they can continue to the more advanced stages of quilting techniques and various quilt blocks. Since each student is encouraged to progress at their own pace, everyone will be at different points of learning. Everyone shares their own piecing experiences, conundrums and in turn discovers that we all make mistakes and we work our way through them. Students can join at any time as this is an on going class.
