We have a side room in the quilting class called the “overflow” room. When the main room fills to capacity the “overflow” room is used.  Well, in the past few months we’ve had to use the “overflow” room  We love it that there are so many wanting to quilt Hawaiian.  They age from 9 – 83.  Great classes, amazing quilters and friends.
