On Friday, July 22, ChattMQG members will learn how to create their own quilt designs during Michelle’s “Modern Quilt Design: Every Day Inspiration” workshop. Michelle will also teach how to create a block from the designs, and at the end of the workshop each participant will take home at least two designs and one block.

The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Adult Education Building at Christ United Methodist Church in Chattanooga. Space is limited to 20 participants and the workshop is currently full. If you are interested in joining the waitlist, please email Mary Keasler at chattmqg@gmail.com.

Participants are encouraged to arrive at 9:30 a.m. to set up their sewing machines and workspace, and they should bring their own lunch which will be enjoyed during a one-hour break. We look forward to seeing you there!
