Amazingly, we are almost finished with 2016! December flies by and sooner than I can blink, it is next year. I am a strong believer in looking around me and noticing the good things. Some of the things that happened this year seemed to have no way of turning into something good, and yet, they did. Some things seemed too hard to bear and yet we survived and pushed forward and found that beauty survives and is all the more precious.
Enjoy your holidays. I celebrate Christmas and will wish you a Merry Christmas. Please do not be offended, just wish those around you a Happy Hanukkah or whatever you celebrate, if you celebrate.
You are blessed, take a moment to notice and say Thank You.
Sandi and staff.

We are repeating this class because so many have said they’d like to learn the technique. Pam will teach this beautiful table topper and show you how easy and fun the process can be. These blocks are from the last class and you can see that fabric choices make an entirely different look! The book is required and there is some homework before class.
