Basic quilting classes
Would you like to learn to quilt? The Decatur Quilters Guild (DQG) offers a basic quilting class to DQG members and non-members. The class is a series of 8 to 10 lessons on pattern and fabric selection, accurate cutting techniques, basic sewing machine maintenance, sewing accuracy, hand and machine piecing and quilting, and much, much more. Each lesson is 1 ½ to 2 hours. Anyone from 8-80 years old is welcome to join us. The class is free to Decatur Quilt Guild members in good standing. The non-member fee for the 10 lessons is $25, which means the quilter can automatically become a member and enjoy the many other benefits of DQG membership.
