Children 12 and older will explore color and pattern while learning how to hand sew. Participants will practice a running stitch to join squares and complete a miniature quilt wall hanging to take home. Adult guardians are welcome participate.

Instructor: Lillian LeBlanc is a lover of hand sewing, quilting and embroidery. The joy of using a needle and thread gives her a connection with quilt artist from the past. She enjoys quilting with friends as women of the past did in quilting bees. Her goal is to pass on as much history of fabrics and threads to our future generations. She enjoys sharing her knowledge with all who have an interest. She started hand piecing during her employment as she travelled throughout California. After her work day she retreated to her hotel room, pickup up her needle, thread and fabric for relaxation. Her sewing kit was her carry-on and she always had an extra project in case her seating companion on the airplane showed an interest. Hand sewing is portable and addictive!! You get lost in the rhythm of stitching and the peace it brings. Lillian is a member of the Sisters Quilting Collective of Sacramento.
