UPCOMING BEGINNING AND INTERMEDIATE QUILTING CLASS!

Our wonderful, nationally known Audrey Hiers (published in McCall’s Quilting) is going to teach another Beginning and Intermediate quilting class.  Orientation is set for Monday, January 13 at Coosa United Methodist Church at 9:30 a.m.  No supplies are needed for orientation except pen and paper.  Don’t be late or you will be recognized for not being prompt.  The class is held for 8 additional Mondays, same time and place, thru March 16 with the exception of March 2.  The cost of the class is $20.00 that pays for the printing of Audrey's famous manual and a donation to the church.  If you are a repeat offender (didn’t finish the beginner class) or intermediate student (completed beginner with success), the cost is $10.00.  This is strictly a donation to the church and no manual is included.  Payment is due at orientation – check or cash.

You may email Liz Hogan to get on the list: eahogan@windstream.net
