If you’re a quilter now or you wish you knew how, get on over to the Quilt, Craft & Sewing Festival. You’ll find products, workshops and seminars on quilting, needle arts, punch embroidery, iron-on metals, crystals, beading, cross-stitch, knitting, sewing and more. One popular class: “Less Than Traditional” quilting Charlie’s Way, which promises to make quilting quicker and easier than ever before.
Your ticket is good for all three days so take your time, come back each day of the festival so you don’t miss any learning opportunities. Visit www.rustybarn.com for a show brochure listing all exhibitors, classes and locations. There’s a $1 off coupon on the site also.
