2017 Classes With Robin Vizzone

I'm a teacher by trade and I like to connect with fellow needlworkers.  I believe that learning should always be fun and I conduct my classes with that in mind.  If you want to practice a new technique or advance your primitive style stitching skills, I'd love to meet you!  I'm happy to visit guilds, quilt shops and quilting events.  ~ Robin
