We are thrilled to have Jen in the studio for three days of stitching! During this workshop we will be exploring the possibilites of using all our orphan blocks and pieces left over from other projects and turning them into a masterpiece. Or you can start making your own sampler style quilt using one of Jen's patterns: Delilah, Green Tea and Sweet Beans, Long Time Gone or any blocks from the range of tempters.
