An appliqué class will include how to construct a woven basket filled with ivy and flowers

The Community Centre will be abuzz with activity and fabulous workshops when Vancouver Island Fibre Fest comes to town May 3-5.

The class will be taught by Val Ursulak from Nanaimo, who has taught many appliqué classes for various guilds all over Vancouver Island.

Jackee Thaysen, a well known and well-respected quilter and teacher will teach Nine Patch Frenzy.

In this class you will go from a regular nine patch to wonky nines and curvy tens!
