Saturday, March 6th, 2021 Crites

Saturday Workshop: "Quilt Coloring Fun" with Lauretta Crites 11am- 2 pm
You know coloring is great fun! Did you know you can color your quilts? Of all the supplies available for art quilts by far my favorite and the easiest to use is pencil colors. More precise than crayons, easier to control and blend than inks and paints. Add that they are inexpensive and with the application of “magic elixir” permanent on fabric, what’s not to love! Come have the fun of reacquainting yourself with the joys of simple coloring. If you have learned to “color INSIDE the lines” you already have all the skills you need to launch right in and start creating! Lauretta Crites is an award winning quilter with a rich textile history. “When we are busy doing what we love, who cares what everyone else is doing."
Workshop Fee: $60 fee includes kit (Must register by March 4 to get kit) Non-members are welcome for a $70.00 fee. Supply List.
