Question from Jessica S.
Is this social sewing time for quilt makers only, or would it be okay to bring other projects?
Answer from Heather H. Verified Student
It's been a few years since I've been, but when I went, it was open to whatever project you needed to work on.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
