Quilting catching on in the Point

Prevost-Meier plans to begin club 10 in a couple months. She is also looking to start a club for those just beginning quilting.

"It's pretty much a nine-part series. We meet every two weeks," she said. "Basically every two weeks we work on a technique. What's good about that is you don't really have to make a quilt. You can use a whole bunch of fabrics that you have left over. Because it's really about piecing."

The shop is also bringing in long-time quilter Diane Forey of Rouses Point to begin teaching how to quilt with wool, which Forey actually finds to be easier.

"You don't have to turn the edges under," she explained. "If you do traditional applique, you have to turn the edges under so the raw edges don't show. But with wool, it's felted wool so it doesn't unravel. So, it's easy."

Both Forey and Prevost-Meier agreed there is wide-range of difficulty when it comes to quilting.

"There's different variations of how hard it is," said Forey. "You can make a really easy quilt or an easy little table topper, or you can make it really complicated."
