Joyce had another paper piecing class and the ladies did really well with the basics. If you were not able to get into the class, watch the newsletter for the next class.

My name is Melinda Anstead and I am pleased to be working at Quilt ‘N Go as a sales clerk. I started sewing as a young girl and my first formal classes were at the high school during the summer between 7th and 8th grade. All through high school, I made my own uniforms and dresses. My skills were put to use later making clothing for my five daughters. My only son was treated to one-of-a-kind boxer shorts!
My interest in quilting started over 30 years ago and I bought a few books and saved all the free patterns I could find. My first quilt was a patchwork of scraps I had saved from years of making clothes. My oldest daughter, who was about 12 at the time, helped with the project and her daughter still has the quilt all these years later.
When my husband and I moved to Vicksburg just over five years ago, my goal was to finally learn “real” quilting. I took a few lessons to learn the tips and techniques I needed and before long, I had made some beautiful quilts. I was able to purchase a longarm machine a few years ago and my love of quilting grew to a new level. You can bring your quilts to me at QNG.
Learning to quilt had been a dream for so long and now it is my reality. I’ve been able to be involved in a charity project by helping to complete quilts, as well as make many quilts for my family. I have met some wonderful quilters and friends who share my passion and I look forward to many, many years of quilting.
