Sponsored in partnership with the Friends of the Brentwood Library, the series will be taught by Discovery Bay resident and longtime quilter Julia Rivera, who recently initiated a children’s project area at the Guild of Contra Costa County Quilt Show. Rivera learned to quilt at the age of 12, completing the same project she’ll teach to class attendees. Most of her finished quilts are donated to those in need, including military patients, cancer patients and residents of convalescent homes.
Classes are free but space is limited. Register by calling the library at 925-516-5290 or stopping by the library at 104 Oak St.
Participants should plan to bring the following materials: white 100-percent cotton thread (avoid polyester or cotton-coated), white hand-quilting thread, a sharp pair of scissors and a variety pack of quilting needles.
