Saturday's workshop is Chicken Challenge with choice of Gallus Gallus, Barnyard Queen, Quack, Ruddy Rooster or Curious Duck. Workshops are $55 which includes lunch.  Pattern purchase will be required and not included in fee.  Please let Celia know which pattern you want when you sign up.  Classes will be held at Palouse Community Center from 9-4.  Workshops will stress choosing fabrics for your design, so sewing machines aren't required.  You are welcome to sew if your piece is all designed and then you can then bring your machine in from the car.  For more info, contact Nancy at
