We were able to ask Debra Dennis at The Quilting Arts Studio a couple of questions about the classes:
For those who are completely new to quilting, which classes would you recommend?
Debra: I would recommend learning the basic skills of patchwork and quilting. Once you have the basics, you can take go as far as you like.
What can participants hope to create in your classes?
Debra: You can stick to traditional interpretations and make bed or lap quilts, or you can go in the direction of art quilts using fabric and thread as a medium. Whatever your choice, you will certainly find quilting to be hobby in which you can express your endless creativity.
The following classes will be offered.
