What do I do with all my old linens? Make a small fat quarter quilt. We're excited to welcome David and Teresa Duwe to McDonald's Sewing & Vacuum. Teresa will teach this workshop. David is self-taught and began quilting in the early 1990's. He thought of the sewing machine as another tool he could use. He would watch quilting shows on television and go into local quilt shops to study their display quilts. He then would go home and make his own creations. Teresa became interested in quilting after a trip to the Houston International Quilt show in 2005. David was her first teacher. Together they are quilt teachers who can teach you how to quilt through classes and quilt shows. They currently are members of 4 quilt guilds: Prairie Quilt Guild, Wichita, KS; Country Rose Quilt Guild, Rose Hill, KS; Walnut Valley Quilters Guild, Winfield, KS; Wichita Modern Quilt Guild, Wichita, KS.
