Brenda Hill, Family and Consumer Science Educator with the Cleveland County OSU Extension Service, will lead the workshop, which features two nights of sewing in a pair of two-hour sessions. Rag quilts are a new trend in quilting that combines materials not traditionally thought of in quilting into squares to make a unique design.

It’s a chance to use sewing machines that are part of one of the Pioneer Library System’s new STEAM power maker kits. Either beginners or advanced sewers can benefit from the program. Space is limited to the first 12 to register.
