Quilt basics taught at one-day workshop

Students will learn the basics of quilt piecing and machine quilting while making an easy tote bag at a one-day workshop Saturday, July 31, at the Stecoah Valley Cultural Arts Center.

Participants will use the “Mini-Charmer” pattern, which is available at local quilt shops & online. A sewing machine in good working condition, preferably with a “walking foot,” is required.  If you don’t have a portable sewing machine to bring to class, don’t let that stop you. Contact Melinda at Stecoah Valley Center or the instructor, Rena Magolnick, at 828.479.2100.

$20 if you bring your own materials, or $55 including the fabric and pattern. A material and supplies list will be provided when you register. To register, 828.479.3364.
