October 21, 2017: Virginia Walton workshop on Creative Curves at Selbe Scott Senior Center, 500 Rollingstone Drive, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. As requested by our membership, Virginia will teach the pattern, “FALLing in Love with Curves.”
If you want to scale down the size of the project in order to learn the technique, that is also an option. The fabric sizes are small and perfect for scraps! Virginia will bring her rulers for purchase. Virginia will be happy to provide additional explanation at the October 19 meeting presentation.
