I began quilting over a year ago and took my first lessons at the Artful Quilter. The lessons were very helpful and informative, and the teacher was patient, provided great instruction, and very friendly. All employees that I met at the Artful Quilter are nice and welcome you as soon as you walk in the door. During the year, they hold some sales and their products are top-notch. I recommend quilters of all skill levels go to this store and see the quailty of product and instruction.
