Quilt Making for Beginners Class

Quilt making has a long history in the United States. For hundreds of years, mothers and grandmothers handed down the techniques of piecing quilts to the young women in their families. As a result, generations of women learned to quilt. While it seemed that many had lost interest in these traditional skills, people have become more interested in learning to make things for themselves in the last few years. This September, England Run Branch will have two experienced quilters, Donna Edwards and Pat Burroughs, come and teach a hands-on quilting class, Quilt Making for Beginners.
