Our next class is a Back basting needle turn applique class. If you do hand applique and don't know about this technique, you NEED to get in on this class! Ruth has been doing hand applique for 40 years, and has been using the back basting needle turn method for the last 5 years and swears she will never use another technique for hand applique again. It saves time, energy, material, and headaches.
We had a few cancellations so we have a few rooms left if you are interested in attending the retreat! Call us ASAP to reserve your spot if you would like to go to our retreat in Shipshewana! The cost covers your room, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and the 4 conference rooms we book for our sewing room! You'll have a blast, trust us!

The price will be $24 per month and includes all fabrics for the top, binding and pattern. You have to see these fabrics to realize just how rich and beautiful these jewel tones are. The picture does not do this quilt justice.
