This week, the third Quilts of Valor event is being held on Washington Island in the Sophie Studio, coordinated by Ellen Graf. Teams of coaches and rookies and individual quilters are creating quilts for military servicemembers touched by war. Again this year, there’s one Island “snowbird” team sewing a quilt at the same time in Arizona. Cutting and pressing started this morning and a few stars appeared this afternoon.
On Sunday, February 1st, registration will open! On that day, all of the 2015 class descriptions and complete registration information will be on our website, www.sieversschool.com. Until then, you will still see last summer’s classes. Our 2015 cover is a piece of paste-painted paper from a class with Lorrie Grainger Abdo last September. This will also be the cover for our full brochure, mailed out by the end of February. (We want to let you know that Cindra is out of the office on vacation through February 4th. Ann and Carolyn will respond to everyone who registers as quickly and as best as we are able from Monday, February 2nd and on.) Here’s a look at the full class schedule and more… Sievers Class Schedule 2015 Birch […]
