For Ages 9-12

Explore color and pattern while learning how to hand sew. You’ll practice a running stitch to join squares and complete a miniature quilt wall hanging. The techniques you learn can also be applied to making or adorning your own clothes. If you enjoy quilting or sewing with an adult buddy, they are welcome to tag along.

About the Instructor:

Crocker docent Fredi A. Slaughter-Walker retired as a Social Worker and became inspired to try quilting after some gentle nudging of a good friend. She enjoys working with cloth, watching the way color and shape play together to create a design or speak a mood. Her quilts have been exhibited at the Brickhouse Art Gallery in Sacramento, The African American Museum and Library in Oakland, and in the “Mudcloth Madness 2012” at the Kuumba Collective Art Gallery. She is a member of several community quilting groups, the Sisters Quilting Collective, Sew What Sisters, and the River City Quilt Guild.
