The 30th Annual Quilt Workshop, sponsored by the Brushy Mountain Quilters Guild and the Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center, will be held on Saturday, November 4 at the Center’s Educational Complex (70 Hiddenite Church Road in Alexander County). This exciting event hosts quilters from across the region for their choice of five all-day classes in quilting techniques and production.
The one-day workshop hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Openings are available in each of the five classes: “Strip It Three Ways” by Carol Britt; “Two Fabric Bargello Quilt” by Terrie Townsend; “Watercolor Painting on Fabric” by Bonnie Shropshire; “Indian Summer” by Lucille Amos; and “Maple Leaf Flurries” by Janet McNamara Houck.
Workshop registration includes instruction in the five-hour class of each participant’s choosing, coffee break, instructor’s display, lunch, Lucas Mansion Gallery tour, and dessert.
Early registration affords participants a $10 discount in their fee for the workshop. The registration fee prior to August 1st is $65 per person or $75 per person after that date. Class sizes are limited, so interested quilters are encouraged to register by calling the Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center at 828-632-6966 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the scheduled classes, the workshop will feature a special one-day sewing boutique, provided by Carol Britt of Batiks Etcetera and Sew What Fabrics.
