Hand Stitching & Quilting with Jenn Noble Shepherd
The tradition of piecing and quilting by hand runs deep in Appalachia. Creating a beautiful and useful quilt from the small bits of fabric one had on hand showcases the creativity and ingenuity that defines Appalachian life. Jenn will guide you through the process of designing, piecing, and quilting an heirloom of your very own.
This class will last for 4 weeks and will be held on Wednesday nights beginning on March 10th.
