Jolly Jingle Workshop

Our Second Annual Jolly Jingle Workshop was an amazing success!

Our terrific teachers, Jenny, Karen, Margaret, & Sheri, had 13 workshops from which to choose. 
Over 3 days, participants made up to 8 different Christmas projects.

There were paper piecing projects, applique, quilted, sewing projects, & handwork. 
There were small & large projects - something for everyone!


  It was a great week of making new stitchy friends & enjoying some longstanding friendships.
