While HollyAnne’s first exposure to machine sewing was at the young age of 8, it was much more recently that she returned to it. She began with a t-shirt quilt for her Mama. Now, years after that first t-shirt quilt made her fall in love with quilting, she is passionate about providing encouraging, high quality quilting education.
HollyAnne is the Founder & CEO of String & Story whose mission is to guide more quilters around the world to quilt with confidence rather than being afraid they will “mess up” their quilt. String & Story teaches quilting with confidence and how to become a free motion Quilting Rockstar. She has worked with 20,000 students from 17 different countries around the world.
HollyAnne will talk to us about Quilting Plans.
Workshop: Crumb Quilts with Eugenia Fernandez
Wed May 17 – 6 – 9 p.m. at The Well Community
Members $25 Non-members $40
Are you drowning in scraps and don’t know what to do with them? Make a Crumb Quilt! This workshop will introduce you to the idea of crumb quilts and how to create them. There is no one right way, but I’ll show you an easy way to get started. The best thing is that there are no rules and no measuring. It’s a very freeing way to sew, and there’s no need for pins or a seam ripper.
Want to try it and don’t have scraps? Don’t worry – I have scraps enough for everyone.

Ruler (min 12”) & rotary cutter
Square ruler as large as your desired block size (not required but helpful)
Basic sewing supplies (scissors, thread, bobbins, bag for trash)
