CLASSES, TRIPS, RETREAT
March 3, 2020 Rhonda Adams “My Funky Flock”
Wonky birds, liberated loons or feathered friends, call them what you may, but these little guys are sure to make you smile. These fellas are made using liberated, free-style or improvisational piecing. The key is to trust your eye as there is no right or wrong or perfect size for your finished blocks. My only request is that you use your imagination and based on some simple guidelines, create your own “Funky Flock”.
The class is $40.00 for OWQG members and $45.00 for non-members you can sign up at our Monday meetings or contact Jean Temme.
Class is held at Conley’s church on March 3, 2020 and will start at 9:00 but be there at 8:30 to set up.
Please bring your lunch and a small light if you wish.

There is no sewing in class, just cutting, fusing and creating!
