Quilting Gone Wrong Class at the Chesterton Art Center


Leslie Cefali will be teaching a 4-week Quilting Gone Wrong class beginning Saturday, April 6 from 1-3. In this class, the traditional quilting rules will be tossed out the window. Leslie, the instructor, provides this as a class description, "We will break all rules - we love knots, we celebrate big stitches and we never, ever turn under a hem. Oh, and we pretty much outlaw straight, even edges. Big stitches and knots will be encouraged in an effort to create fiber pieces full of texture, color and wild abandon! No sewing or quilting experience is necessary…in fact, it may be easier for you if you have never threaded a needle."
