Learning to Quilt: A Sampler Quilt Workshop
Powhatan Historic State Park
Saturday, January 22, 2011
9:00am – 12:00pm
Registration Fee: $30

There is something inexpressibly satisfying about working with cloth, and quilting is a time-honored form of needlecraft that can be done either as a satisfying journey of self-expression, or by joining with others in a rewarding community endeavor. This workshop focuses on teaching, or practicing, piecing and quilting techniques by making a Sampler quilt. The 20-square quilt created through this workshop contains blocks especially chosen to familiarize you with different techniques. Full-sized patterns are given along with instructions and diagrams. The participant is responsible for the fabric; contact the park for specific amounts. This workshop will meet every month throughout the year to create this beautiful piece of American Tradition. Instruction Fee: $30 For more information, or to register, call 870-878-6765 or email powhatan@arkansas.com.
