Quilted fabric postcards are a fantastic way to use scraps, try a new technique, experiment with color and thread...and bring a smile to family and friends around the globe! In this workshop, Sarah will teach you how to make quilted fabric postcards, provide guidance on different material options and finishing techniques, as well as share tips and tricks she has learned while making over 200 postcards (so far). Students will leave the workshop with at least one finished postcard, and possibly many more! Sewing machines provided!
