Our goal will be to develop practical skills , as well as an appreciation of the history and traditions of hand sewing, wool applique' (felting) and quilting. Beginning with basic running, blanket, and whip stitches, we will create a small sampler. This will provide a basis for a wool applique' pincushion project, and while continuing to improve our skills, we will complete a hand pieced quilted pillow cover. Skills will be specialized for young adult learners so that they are successful! Projects may be customized to learner's interest.

About the Instructor: Sharon Hall was taught the art of traditional quilting by her mother over 35 years ago. Sewing side-by-side, she came to appreciate not only the art of quilting, but also the close connection it created between them. Like many women, Sharon put traditional quilting aside when family and career required much of her time. Thanks to modern quilting technique classes, She has rekindled her love of quilting over the past ten years. Sharon has taught these modern time-saving techniques to numerous women who have a shortage of time, but a desire to learn and pass on the wonderful art of quilting.
