Traci Hutton will teach you the ancient art form of quilling. She will show you a variety of ways to create hearts. You will then be able to incorporate your heart(s) onto a tag that you can collage and make it your own.

Make plans to attend this fun class and be inspired. Kit fee $5  Remember to bring your To-Go kit or at least small scissors. Everything else will be provided.
