Technique Quilting with January

January Shaffer has listened to your requests and beginning in January she will be hosting 3 different quilting technique sessions. These will be offered on a regular basis so if you aren't able to attend what you need know that it will be offered again. The number of attendees will also be kept small so she can offer personalized attention. Backgrounds and Fill-ins. What can we say but she is truly an artist so if you have a long arm or one of the sit down smaller long arms you are the audience. Acrylic Tools and Stencils. She is always looking for new ideas to implement into her quilts and wants to share some of these with you. Feathers.

Yes, we all dream of being able to just create the most beautiful feathers but she will show you how to go about doing this for real!

Watch for 2018 class dates!

Instructor: January Shaffer

Class is free if you purchased a Coronet or Crown Jewel from Cherry Berry, otherwise fee is $20 per class. Just bring note taking materials to class. Photos allowed but no recordings during class.
