In this one-woman quilt show, Janesville quilt artist, Cindy Anderson, shares with us her exquisite original designs borne of the healing powers of art.
“The world of art, with its many forms, has always brought me joy. From my childhood explorations with chalk and paint to my recent creations using fabric and thread, I have utilized art as my vehicle to stretch my wings, break free from my emotional bondage and heal my wounded spirit.” - artist statement excerpt

October 1 & 3 ( 2 sessions)

Make your own adorable stuffed animal using your favorite fabrics! You can make either the cat or the dog. Samples are Patch the Pussycat and Digger the Dachshund.
