BEST QUILTERS in COMFREY PUBLIC SCHOOL

Fabric Fieldtrip

In mid January the textile class traveled to New Ulm, Minnesota to visit a fabric store. The Timble Box sells fabric specifically for quilters. A wide array of fabrics lined the walls and tables. Students broadened their knowledge about quilting techniques as well as had some fun!

Sew Much FUN learning!

Quilting? Me? I don't know...

Students in this advanced FACS course made a unanimous decision to tackle quilting this spring. Each student is heading in a different direction with the final goal being the same: A finished quilt! They have learned some important information along the way: Accurate measurement; Safety with correct quilting tools; Pressing vs. Ironing; Teamwork & Cooperation; Creativity; 1/4 inch seam allowances; and much more. They anticipate their success and are anxious to enjoy a memorable keepsake.
