Purple Crayon Workshop: Let’s Make a T-Shirt Quilt!

January 6 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Now that the holiday crazies are over, it’s time to give YOURSELF a gift!

Gather 16 of your favorite old t-shirts—from your favorite concerts, events, vacations, and school days (or, in a pinch, the local thrift store!)—and create a beautiful memory quilt!

In this workshop, Purple Crayon’s founder and avid quilter, Pam Robbins, will teach you the basic quilting skills you need to make an easy, but lovely (and snuggly!) blanket for your living room, basement, child’s dorm room—or wherever you want to stave off the winter chills.

This workshop is designed for beginning quilters, but seasoned quilters are welcome—and often have just as much fun!
