FREE Quilt Class for youth ages 9-19

Quilting is an art, and for some, that art is being lost. But the Prairie Piecemakers Extension Homemakers Club hopes to pass along the art of quilting, and sewing, to a new generation by offering a series of quilting classes to youth ages 9-19. The first class will be held Saturday, October 8 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Prairie County Fairgrounds in Hazen. Participating youth will have the opportunity to make a pillow, wall hanging, or small quilt. Materials will be provided; they will just need to bring a sack lunch. To register for this free class, please call the Prairie County Extension Office at 870-998-2614 or email smwilson@uaex.edu

To the businesses and individuals who so generously donated, the kids and parents who worked so hard, and to everyone who came to show their support...THANK YOU!
