Bust your Stash with Creative Grids® Lecture
Wednesday, June 13, 2018 - 6pm to 8pm

Learn how to organize your stash so it becomes the foundation of your next heirloom quality quilt! With the right tools, you can bust that stash in a matter of minutes. Create your own pre-cuts and store them so that you will be pulling pieces from your stash – and not just adding to it.

View a trunk show of over forty quilts made with over twenty Creative Grids Specialty Tools and Rulers. Many of them include fudge factors so beginners to experts can sew perfect blocks in a matter of minutes. The secret? The pieces are cut a little larger than needed and trimmed to size AFTER cutting, sewing, and pressing.
