Discover the Art of Quilting – SOLD OUT
Quilting has been used for thousands of years to add extra warmth, protection and decoration to clothing and household items. Simple in concept, yet amazingly versatile, spend the day learning simple techniques including shadow, corded and stuffed quilting (also known as boutis or Marseille and trapunto) in a relaxed and informal setting, gaining an appreciation of the versatility of the craft. Quilting lends itself to everything from clothing to Christmas tree decorations.
