In this 5 week class, you will create a personal journal quilt that captures a significant moment in your life. Each Monday, starting January 21, a new lesson will be posted to the Fiber Art Mixed Media (FAMM) website. You can access them any time after that until the end of the semester in March 2013. If you have any questions about the lesson or need advice, log onto the FAMM website and post your questions and/or pictures to the site. Heather will be checking the site throughout the week to answer your questions and guide you through the process.
