FAB Lab Classes are Here!

Friends Around the Block is excited to announce that FAB Lab is off and running. FAB Lab offers a variety of classes for all levels of sewing and quilting! Classes are held in the store, usually on Saturdays, and often before the shop opens. Due to space, class sizes are kept very small. Whether you want to brush up on basic skills or learn something new, FAB Lab will be able to offer personalized instruction to participants. Come sew with us! Classes are being added each week, so check our calendar often for updates.

We still have room in our upcoming Dresden Plate class. Learn how to make a large Dresden Plate quilt with triple-strip sashing.This two-session class is January 31 and February 14.
