Help us bring the tradition of barn quilts to our region by creating your own to hang on your house or barn. Barn Quilts are quilt designs painted onto wooden boards that are weatherized and can be hung on interior or exterior surfaces. This class will make 1×1 foot boards. There will be an option of three different quilt square designs to choose from. A variety of paint colors will be provided so students can individualize their colors to further personalize their piece. Learn all the steps needed to create your own square and leave class with a fully finished piece and the skills to complete more of any size at home on your own.

Our 2019 auction was a success and the net profits will be equally split between both organizations. These funds will provide critical support for operations in the coming year, allowing us to present a variety of community arts programming. Many thanks to our tremendous local businesses and supporters for their ongoing support!
