Mile a Minute Quilt 4-H Class

— Written By

Join us for an easy sew-along & quilt class.

We will be making a “Mile A Minute Quilt”, which is an easy beginner method for all skill levels and ages. Youth will need adult supervision. Basic sewing skills are good to have, but this is a great opportunity to learn these. A sewing machine is necessary. It would be a ton of work to hand stitch. There is no cost for this class, but supplies are needed.

Meets Virtually every Wednesday 2-3 p.m. from December 2 – 23.
