Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details:
Instructor: Amber Johnson
Instructor Bio: I started quilting a few months after I got married (in 1998). I asked my grandmother (who is an avid, award-winning quilter) if she would teach me how to quilt. Of course, she was thrilled to have someone in the family who actually wanted to learn how. We made wonderful memories as we worked on my first quilt together. It took me about 3 years to complete it (LOL) but after that I was hooked! She gave me my first thimble and she is also the namesake of my quilt pattern design company called Gigi's Thimble. Her name is Delma but her great-grandchildren call her Gigi (pronounced Gee-Gee). Gigi's Thimble was born in 2009.
Includes 4 days of sewing, 2 classes by Amber Johnson and a trunk show.
