Introductory Exploration of Woven Quilting
with Brenda Gagne
Years ago, I purchased the book “Simply Stunning Woven Quilts” by Anna Faustino, and began playing with the concept of woven quilting. This technique is a great way to use abandoned blocks and/or assemble blocks from scraps that set a seasonal tone. In this class you will make two blocks then weave them using the techniques from the book to create a background. Go to www.nobleadulted.org for a list of materials and tools.
On the Ball Toning
with SAM PANNIER
This is a fun stability ball class that will challenge your core and everything else! You will improve your flexibility, balance and strength while having so much fun you won’t even realize your working out! The benefit of exercising with a stability ball is that the body responds to the instability of the ball in order to remain balances, thus engaging more muscles. No experience necessary. Use one of our balls or bring your own.
