BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE QUILTING CLASS:  In this class you will have a choice of either making a Wall Quilt 30x36 or Large Lap Size 72x87. This pattern has a new “Twist” for making the Pinwheel pattern. Wide strips of fabrics make up the stripe pattern and we will be using various fabric prints. To make the pinwheels we will be using the “Lil’ Twister” tool for the small version and the larger version requires the use of the “Twister” tool. Each will be discussed in the first class. The tools can be ordered through the instructor at the first class. The quilt pattern is easy and fun to do while you will be learning how to use the “Twister” tool. If you have a theme fabric that you like but do not want to cut it into small pieces then that fabric can be used in this quilt as a focus fabric. My theme fabric is Lighthouses. If you would like to see the quilt or have any questions about the class, please email me at nls19quilts@yahoo.com. As always you should be able to bring your machine to class and have some knowledge of the use of the rotary cutting system.

ENVISIONING THE FUTURE YOU WANT: Join other women to unleash your power to create the future of your dreams. Imagine it, choose images that speak to you and lock them onto a vision board to begin your journey. After some reflection on your life now and imagined, you will release your unconscious and bring your dreams to life. No artistic ability necessary.

 FICTION WRITING WORKSHOP: As novelist John Garnder wrote in his seminal craft book The Art of Fiction, "fiction does its work by creating a dream in the reader's mind." The writer sustains that dream through the imaginative use of craft as he or she creates setting, character, plot, and theme. This course is designed for both the novice and experienced writer to help them develop and refine their craft as fiction writers. Writers can bring in existing work or generate new work in the short story or novel form. The emphasis will be on workshop critique and discussion and revision of each piece. The instructor is the author of more than 150 books, both fiction, and nonfiction
