The open studio format of this class allows you the freedom to work on any quilting project(s) you choose and to work independently at your own pace. Kathy will demonstrate techniques and provide helpful hints and tips to help you refine your quilting skills and finish your quilts. She will also offer individual instruction and input as needed and will be available for questions.

Bring your favorite patterns, fabric, tools and projects to spend a week relaxing and quilting in this beautiful setting. All levels of quilting and sewing experience are welcome to join in this week of traditional quilting.

Kathy Swanson took her first quilting class in 1981 as part of The Clearing's Winter Program and has taught quilting at The Clearing for over ten years. She enjoys designing and teaching fun classes to share her love of color and the art of traditional quilting techniques. Kathy lives in Ellison Bay and is The Clearing's Registrar.
