Well known quilt artist Latifah Shakir will lead a workshop that teaches how to power up your quilting with yoga. In this  personal journey you will learn yoga techniques to alleviate symptoms of pain, increase flexibility and strengthen your  joints in your hands and feet.

The class is today  from  noon – 3 p.m. at the South Fulton Arts Center, 4645 Butner Road, College Park, GA. The class fee is $15.00. Register by sending an email to atlantaquiltfestival@gmail.com. Space is limited so act quickly.

The class will last three hours. Attendees will create a Namaste Flag project which is a fabric collage consisting of fabric, meditating stitching and embellishments.

Supplies required for this class are items you  already have around your home. Bring thread, needle, scissors, fabric scraps, embellishments such as trim, buttons, fabric markers, etc. __ whatever your heart desires. Latifah will bring the rest of the supplies.

See You at the Festival!
