Marilou Jacob will introduce you to her fabulous friend, Marie Webster. Marie was the first ever to write a book about quilting; the first ever to publish quilt patterns in magazines and newspapers; was the most modern quilter of her day, changing from designs like Crazy Quilts with lots of Victorian fru-frus to clean, bright colors and beautiful appliqued flowers and shapes. The ladies loved every one and she was in business. We will have a power point presentation showing her lovely quilts and her home.

Our own Barbara Hutchinson, owner of the Cozy Quilter Quilt Shop in Middletown, will share the useful, quirky, amazing and necessary new products on the market and how to use them. She will share the details about how to use invisible thread and give us the lowdown on all those handy pre-cut fabrics, like jelly rolls. Also, Marilou Jacob will review the various kinds of batting and how to use them. Bring your questions.
This is the first project class of the year. We will make an awesome table runner called The Zipper. No, it doesn’t have a zipper in it; the pattern just resembles a zipper and is EASY. You can make this pattern to fit into any décor; Christmas, July 4 picnic, Spring or just the best colors to go with your kitchen or dining room. Of course, it makes a great gift.
