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.


Cost: $35
