Choose your favorite friends from our plushie wall and customize the pattern and fabrics to make them yours!
QUILT QUEST | QUILT DESIGNER
Quilting is a way of sewing together various small pieces of fabric to make one larger sheet of fabric you can turn into a blanket, a pillow or something else. Throughout history people have used quilting to represent themselves, their communities, ideas, values, emotions, and memories. There are many forms of quilting. It can be a very exact science or it can be more free form and loose. Combine colors & patterns to express yourself or tell your story in a way that is unique to YOU. The process is fun, individual, and you’ll be amazed at the finished product!
Get ready for lots of designing and sewing. This camp is a lot of both. Great for beginners to get a lot of practice on the sewing machine and great for more advanced sewers to explore the artsy side of sewing.
