new year’s resolutions
With the start of every year, we are re-energized to tackle projects new and old. We all love to start a new project, but it’s equally as exciting to finally see a quilt come to an end.

Join us for a series of Saturday workshops dedicated to finishing previous block of the month projects. There’s a catch though! The first class of the series if free, but after that, you must bring a newly finished block from your project to the next class or pay a small “resolution” fee of $5.00. This will be a New Year’s resolution that will be easy to keep! New Year’s Resolution days run from 11:00am - 4:00pm. No need to register for them.
