I've been asked to teach the BeColourful Circle of Life pattern and thought that I would put up an interest sheet. If I have enough people interested in joining this class, I can get it put on my upcoming teaching schedule. This would be a six-month workshop series and the cost would be $50.00 per month plus pattern and fabric. If you have any questions regarding the class, please contact me at compasspointquilts@gmail.com. This class would be for experienced paper piecers. The date on the website is not the date of the class - my site requires a date and price (one cent) in order to publish - Class dates will be determined if there is enough interest. Just add this to your cart to put yourself onto the "I'm Interested" list.
