    Quilt, Quilt, Quilt!

    Art & Stitch Workshop Instructor: Lynn Blevens Monday, July 18, 9:30 - 5 pm Fee $125 With every purchase of Handi Quilters Pro-Stitcher software, you also receive a copy of Art and Stitch software. Many quilters have never used their Art and Stitch even though it is an incredibly powerful program and an amazing value!

    With Art and Stitch you can draw your own quilt designs from scratch, or trace a background image and turn that vector artwork into quilt patterns for your longarm system. You can edit existing quilt patterns and you can setup full quilt layouts too. Become an artist using the powerful, user-friendly Art and Stitch Program!
