Gen Con Classes

GenCon classes are live!  GenCon is the original longest running gaming convention in the world and it happens in Indianapolis August 17-20.  They are unique by allowing you to pick and choose your classes and events ahead of time by securing tickets.  No waiting in lines!  They also allow us to teach specialty classes which Nicole and I are taking advantage of.

Our class spaces are going fast.  In fact all of Nicole’s classes are full!  I still have some slots in my English Paper piecing classes.  If you have always wanted to learn how to hand sew or to piece a quilt by hand using pieces of paper, this is the class for you.  Or should I say classes?  I will be offering two different ones.

English Paper Piece a Catan Board Quilt

It looks like the Catan Board Game class will be sold out first.  So if you wanted to learn how to do it, you can always take the basic class and then purchase a kit from our booth.  That’s right, I will be offering Catan Paper Piecing kits at Gen Con!  I am still putting the finishing touches on the example (as you can see above) so keep an eye on my social media if you want to see picture updates.
