Fine Crafts & Creativity Workshops
Instructor Catherine Elson is new to the Hayner Center. Her experience with the art of quilt making began when a neighbor shared the gift of quilting with her over twenty-six years ago. Since, that time quilting has become Catherine’s passion. In addition to being a practical skill, quilting promotes creativity and can be a great way to forge friendships. She also teaches quilt making for a local fabric retailer.
After retiring from public school teaching a few years ago, Jan began taking papercrafting and cardmaking classes from various teachers in the area. She has taught several different cardmaking classes at the Hayner in the past few years.
