JAN HOLLINS, Quilter and Fiber Artist 

Spring has sprung and quilting classes have begun!! Due to the great response from Sisters Quilting Collective and the 2nd Annual Quilt Exhibit, quilting and quilting art classes will begin in April 2013. Classes have been selected “that will suit quilt lovers from beginners to the experienced.

Well known fiber artist and quilting instructor, Jan Hollins, will inspire you to bring out your creative side of quilting whether it he traditional or diving into the world of art quilts. Class times are designed to accommodate completion of projects to be taken at the end of the class.
