Workshop – Fast & Easy Quilted Jacket by Linda Whicker

August 14 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Fast & Easy Quilted Jacket with Linda Whicker

Linda Whicker is a member of our guild who is looking forward to sharing with us her skills at
creating a quilted jacket. Linda has shown her jackets at our guild meetings during “Show &
Tell” and they are beautiful. She says they are fun to make, too. The jacket begins with a loose
fitting sweatshirt. Each one is unique based on the fabric chosen, lined or unlined, and neckline
and sleeve finishes. There may not be enough time in the workshop to complete the jacket but
you will have written instructions and a demonstration of what you need to do to complete the
jacket. Come join us for a fun day and make a new fashion statement everyone will admire.
