About the Instructor, Audrey Grantham:
I began sewing when I was very young. I would take my grandmothers sewing kit and hand sew paper napkins together. Years later when I was about 15, me, my mother, and grandmother all participated in a monthly sewing class. We all went once a month for a year. At the end of the class we all three had our own quilt top. The pace set by the instructor was encouraging and manageable for life’s busy schedule and the group supported each other. Since then I have grown to love this craft more and more every day. My hope is that I can share my love for sewing through this technique with a modern flair. Once the Class is full, I will create a Facebook page where we can post pictures, ask questions, and encourage one another as well as updates on the upcoming class.
