Design Your Quilting Layout & Quilt It!


JILL SCHUMACHER IS BACK AT WOODEN GATE!

In this 2 day workshop, Jill will be demonstrating the proper way to sandwich the three layers together to ensure a great finish to your quilt. As we all know, proper sandwiching is step one for a quality quilted finish!

Jill will be bringing her extensive collection of over 1,200 quilting stencils for you to use during the workshop to mark your quilts. On day 1 of the class you should be able to get your quilt sandwiched and marked, leaving day 2 for you to begin quilting with Jill's expertise.   WHAT A GREAT OPPORTUNITY!!
