Quilting Classes in Porterdale

    We have started a series of quilting classes in my home town of Porterdale, this year. 

     So far I have taught a pot holder class in January, a Sonja's Windows class in February, a Let's Polka class in March, and a Trip Around the World class in April. 

     Today, we had what we called a Quilter's Meet up, which was basically a day to come, and sew together, and just work on our own projects. 


I was blown away by all of the finished quilts that were shown at show and tell today, that were started in our classes.

     I just love how different they all are, and love even more, that they are getting finished. We are having such a great time learning some quilting techniques in Porterdale. Soon, there will be painting lessons with Mayor, Arline Chapman.
