Individual Classes

Very popular are the individual tutoring classes where a quilter wishes to be instructed privately on a particular technique or a specific pattern and I work along to help complete the project. We meet each week, then after a period of three or four months we have a completed quilt. Equally popular is finishing those incomplete quilting projects or completing that unfinished inherited quilt or some major repairs to Grandmother's well worn quilt.

For further information, or to register for an individual class please call the Studio at 733-7865 or send an email to franquilts@rogers.com
