You have seen the beautiful quilted table runners, table decorations, baby and lap quilts.  Now learn how to make your own quilts thru these classes.
Ann Mroczenski will give you hands on instructions on making your own heirloom quilted projects.

First learn the very basics in quilting before you hit the sewing machine. Learn what it takes to even begin quilting.  Is this the craft for you?  Take the Intro to Quilting class. Find out what tools are needed, what is involved and have your questions answered. 

Once you have the intro to quilting put some of that knowledge to work. Bring your sewing maching and tools and learn some new tricks with some simple and easy projects.
Start with a simple projects and move on up to the harder projects. Each project teaches you some different skills which when put together will give you the skills to create your own projects.
