#30- Linda Neal- "Award Winning Advanced Techniques" Two Day Class Feb 9-10 Fri-Sat
Join Linda as she takes you through the steps and techniques that she uses in all her award-winning quilts. You won’t have to wonder any longer about “how does she do this and that”! Linda is using the same basket that some of you made last year at TKDAA™ 2017 but she is offering a different basket for those who wish to expand on the class before. She will be covering advanced techniques and working with you on different projects. Linda would love to help you with your future quilts to get them the ribbons that you have been waiting for. More photos will be added and more details, as well.
