With the current cold weather we have been having, wouldn't it be nice to have a nice warm quilt to warm up with? This Saturday is the first installment of a four part class on how to make or finish a quilt top at the Guilford Art Center. Instructor Ruth Anne Olson will be teaching beginner quilters how to start a new quilt or will assist in finishing one you have already started. The class will teach all the techniques of quilting including assembling a simple block design, make slashing and borders, as well as teach how to sandwich, baste and bind your quilt.
A small quilt is recommended in order to finish during the four classes. Tuition is $120.00 for non-members or $108.00 for current members. Classes are Saturdays from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm starting on January 30. A list of required materials is provided at registration. You can get more information on this and other classes at the Guilford Art Center website.
