We are thrilled to announce that the talented and award-winning educator, Gwen Weedon, will be joining us for a special one-day quilting workshop! Together, we will be diving into the world of ocean-inspired quilting. Ever dreamt of creating a one-of-a-kind abstract quilt without using a pattern? Well, Gwen has a special technique that will allow you to bring your unique vision to life.

Each quilt created in this workshop will be as special and individual as the person who made it, reflecting personal fabric choices and cutting preferences. This is the ideal summer project to keep you creatively inspired. By the end of the workshop, you will leave with a beautiful quilt top measuring 20″x30″, perfectly capturing the essence of our sunny summer days. Let’s get crafty and have some fun together!
