Author offers quilting workshops

A Summerland author and quilter will teach quilting to youths.

Yasmin John-Thorpe, coordinator of the Raise a Reader South Okanagan program is joining forces with author and quilting instructor, Brandy Maslowski of Summerland, to bring the art of quilting to youngsters from eight to 18.

Participants will learn about becoming a quilter by choosing one of four book markers to quilt.

Raise a Reader will give a copy of Kristy’s Quilt, written by Maslowski and illustrated by Marcia Stacy, to each young quilter during one of four quilting sessions being offered at Cherry Lane Shopping Centre.

Quilting sessions are Saturday, Sept. 27 from 11 a.m. to noon or 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014 from 11 a.m. to noon or 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
