We will be having a handful of casual quilt camp-like demos starting at 7:45. The demos will be setup around the room so you can visit each demo or stay for a while at those that interest you the most. The demos include English paper piecing, needle turn applique, an easy block, an easy project, a flannel quilt as you go and Grandmother's Flower Garden by machine. We have also scheduled a pro…Chris Groce from Pacific Fabrics will be joining us to show off some of the latest and greatest quilting tools. Should be informative and fun. See you there!
