Quilt Camp for Kids

It's almost the end of the school year and that means summer is upon us once again.

What do you do with the kids to keep them from merely kicking back and watching tv or exercising their thumbs with Nintendo?

In the past few years, we have offered a quilting camp for teens and have had some wonderful students go through.

Mary Green has been the teacher and inspired these young adultsto finish a quilt-top in just a few short weeks and with the fabric lines out there today, this has resulted in bright contemporary quilts. Quilting isn't just Thimbleberries and calico, is it? It's not just for girls either! It's great to see the enthusiasm for this craft grow in our youth every year.

If you have a youth in your life that's looking for something to do with their hands this summer, give us call. We will be working on our next summer season classes in the next few weeks and will keep you up-to-date on when they'll be announced shortly.
