Virtual Quilt Restoration Workshop - Update

Here's what my living room looks like when it turns into a video production studio!  

Martha and I are pleased that our February workshop is now full.

The good news is that you can still register for alá carte lectures and private sessions.

You can also add your name to the mailing list in case of cancellations, and to be notified of future workshops.  We are considering holding another in late spring.
