Join us at the library with your sewing machine, as instructor Penny Nichols takes you on a journey further down the quilting road. Students should have basic quilting skills. Sign up for one or for all 3 classes (2 sessions each). In Magic Stack 'n Whack, you'll create a kaleidoscope-effect quilt, in which the symmetrical design radiates out from the center of the block, forming a different beautiful star each time—all from the same fabric. Come and learn the magic and be amazed!
When: Sunday, Oct. 9, noon – 2 p.m.
