Are you new to quilting? Are you looking for a project that will help you learn quilting basics and refine your skills? Are your quilt making skills a little rusty and you need a refresh? Are you looking for a little creative fun this summer? Welcome to Quilt Camp! This 4-session class will teach quilt top making 101 with 4 quick and easy methods to traditional block construction. Mel’s has done all the hard work for you by putting together a beautiful fabric kit for Running Stitches Quilts’ “Desert Charm” Quilt. With fresh and unique fabrics from Figo’s new “Margo” Collection, this quilt will become a treasured heirloom. Guided by Ruth Locke, an experienced quilter, students will learn new skills and great tips for the whole quilt top making process. Each session will highlight new skills with time between sessions for students to finish any tasks. Sign up today, space is limited.
