Seven students attended the annual beginner Youth Quilt Class conducted by the Shiner Heritage Quilters Guild held on July 16 - 19. They are pictured (l – r): seated—Nevina Kresta, Cecelia Kloesel, Maddie Vahalik; standing—MaryKatherine Kloesel, Emma Tronicek, Jillian Keorth, Logan Caldwell, and former students who assisted with instruction: Isabelle Caldwell, Riley Cerny and Emma Siegel

Students learned how to sew a quarter inch seam, match seams, cut with a rotary cutter, press fabric, and quilt using decorative machine stitches. Many guild members assisted with the class.

The Guild recognizes the Shiner Methodist Church for providing the Fellowship Hall for the classes, The Square Quilter and Sweet Home Stitching Post for assisting with supplies and South Star Bank of Shiner for donating bags. Members enjoyed designing quilt blocks to embellish the bags that were filled with all the fabric and supplies for the class.
