As a Fantastic Bonus for each class you take with us you will earn a Beautiful Siesta Sterling Silver Charm. If you attend all 12 you will receive a Graduation Charm also! Come in the shop to see these, they are so nice.
If you are seeing stars in your future then you have just found your new best friend, the V Block. Making stars is not the only thing the V Block can do to improve your piecing techniques. Once you learn how to use the V Block, you will not go back to those plastic templates you have been tracing and slicing. Or connect a V Block with a half square triangle and watch the curves develop. The possibilities ar only limited to your imagination.
Push the use of your V Block a bit further by learning how to create Sidekicks and High/Low units. You will amaze your quilting friends by thinking that you made a difficult unit, when in fact the use of the V Block made your life so easy.
