Last week Country Treasures hosted a class given by Jackie Kunkel, a nationally-certified teacher for Judy Niemeyer, for a two-day workshop.  Here are some of the photos taken at the class. 
Carolyn is concentrating on cutting foundation paper.  Sarah and Linda are cutting the next phase.  Pat with her first assembly.  Deb has joined hers as well.  Christy with two completed blocks; she’s been working so fast she looks windblown!  Several blocks laid out ready to join.  Sarah, Linda, Deb and Pat have their first blocks.   More sections laid out for viewing.  Linda has finished an entire block!  Two quilts laid out side by side present an amazing display of color.  The whole class is beaming during Show & Tell.  Everyone commented on how enjoyable and informative the class was.  We are considering a monthly technique class beginning in 2013.

We still have a few openings for our Falling Leaves Quilt Retreat if any of you are interested.  Last year was wonderful and we are planning some exciting things for this year.  The retreat is November 6th –11th.  If you are interested, please call Country Treasures – 802-875-4377.
