February 4, 2023
Brunswick Community Library: 4118 NY-2, Troy, NY

Join members of the Capital District Modern Quilt Guild as we help beginner sewers learn all the skills necessary to make a quilt. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we will be making quilted heart mug rugs!

Mug rugs are larger than a coaster and smaller than a placemat. Just enough room for a mug of your favorite beverage and a snack! They have all the components of a quilt (cutting, piecing, quilting, and binding) in miniature form! At the end of this workshop, you will go home with a completed mug rug and the basic skills needed to make any size quilt!

Participants must bring their own sewing machine and basic sewing tools to participate in the workshop. Fabric can be purchased by you ahead of time and brought to class or provided by the Guild for a small fee.
