Quilting and Embroidery @ To Be Announced

Wheaton, IL

Schedule a Make & Connect Workshop

The goal behind each of our Make & Connect Workshops - besides sharing knowledge about technique and process - is to create the time and space for folks to unplug from busy lives, connect with others, and tap into their creative selves.

Whether we are teaching in a beautiful retail space, a hip coffee shop, public library, or a corporate environment, we help participants get lost in the flow of making.

Other Make & Connect Workshops Include:
