Demo Days at QBTB

Join us this Saturday, January 23rd at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm for our first Demo Day.

Miss Kathy will be demonstrating tips and techniques for working with Cuddle fabric, including how she made the super cute quilt as you go cuddle quilts.

Kathy will also show us applique techniques using YLI Wash-A-Way thread, which is easy to do and the results will give you a smooth edge to either machine stitch or hand applique.

I just asked Kathy and she said she will do both demos at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.

So, really its going to be a double demo day!
