SCC offering summer quilting workshops

For anyone in search of a new hobby, Surry Community College is offering several quilting workshops throughout the summer.
Quilting has been done for many years and is well known all over the world. It has changed over time, as it began to fill a basic need for warmth, but is now an art form. Today, the art of quilting has become quite popular as there are many more women and men who take up quilting and enjoy the craft. Quilting is a hobby that allows you to add a personal touch, making your next quilt your unique creation.

Learn to make a Jelly Roll Quilt at a workshop on Saturday, July 23 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Pilot Center. Begin making this quilt by buying a jelly roll. This is 40 or 42 strips of fabric that are 2.5 inches wide and about 44 inches long.
The fabric in each jelly roll typically comes from one line of fabric. This is a huge plus because it means that all the colors in the quilt will coordinate.
