Addicted To Fabric - Tuesday, November 10, 2015

Over the past eight weeks we've been hosting fourteen new (and not so new) quilters in the Skill Builder for Beginners and Beyond classes by Jules McMahon of Procrasticraft. The night and day classes have seen these women grow in confidence and skill and the quilts they've produced are nothing short of remarkable. 

Here is a sample of the works to have come through:
