Every year in February, interested Clark County Quilters members volunteer to teach a class on a technique or new method they've discovered to other CCQ members. These Saturday Workshops are a benefit of CCQ membership, and are only available to CCQ members.
This year, there are 17 classes offered for all levels and interests. Classes include making corded vessels, how to inset circles, foundation piecing basics, creating totes, folded log cabin blocks, quilted postcards, different applique techniques, table runners, trapunto greeting cards and snap happy bags. I've volunteered to teach a Thread Painting class for the membership.
The classes are being held at Felida Baptist Church in Vancouver, and five local quilt shops provided 25% discounts on class supplies - just one more reason to go shopping!
So, if you live in Southwest Washington or Northwest Oregon, consider joining Clark County Quilters. With a membership of about 540 members, they are a group of active, socially engaged men and women using their love of quilting to grow creatively and improve the lives of others in the community.
