Oct 20, 2018 — Gail Renna Workshop

Gail will be teaching her “Hot Flash” class to make a Rapid Fire Hunter’s Star.  Deb Tucker’s original quilt was made with red and white fabrics which gave her pattern the name.

The workshop has been reduced to $45 to encourage attendance and to offset the required ruler for this class. There is no other kit fee. The quilt is based on a two fabric design and the addition of a black or other dark contrasting fabric creates the border.

To sign up for the class, please email Penny Black.

Class starts at 9:30 am and will be held at Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, 1555 Windmill Pointe Road, Palm Harbor. Church is located on the corner of East Lake Road and Windmill Pointe Road.  Bring your lunch and all your machine parts.  Click here for the supply list for the “Hot Flash” class.
