You may have found “a few” T-shirts in the backs of some of the closets you’ve been reorganizing during your time at home these past few months. If you’d like to learn how to make them into a quilt, the BBQ Schoolhouse in April is just what you’re looking for. With your $15 per student enrollment, you’ll have access to 2 pre-recorded digital presentations and a 30-minute appointment for fusing your rough-cut T-shirt graphics with a T-shirt press to stabilize them.

When we have a minimum of 6 confirmed enrollments for the class, we’ll let you know when the recorded presentations will be available.

Class minimum is 6 students, class maximum is 10 students.

March 20th – Enrollment closes. Enrollments must be paid to confirm.
