Classes - Adel Quilting & Dry Goods Co.


                        We host a variety of classes for all skill levels. 

 Central Iowa Free Quilters Society - Saturday, Nov. 9, 9 am to 5 - Adel Library

Quilter's gather to use up scraps and share scrappy quilt making ideas. There will be a "sharing table" for scraps that may no longer serve you but will go well in someone else's scrappy quilt. Class is free but call to register as seating is limited. Come to stitch all day or come at 1 pm for just the meeting.

We plan to meet for this free class every other month at the Adel Library.  Plan to come for stitching from 9 am to 5 pm or come at 1 pm for just the meeting. Group leader is Julia Swallow.
