Workshops

A sampling of some of the Inchie Quilts related workshops is below. More workshops are currently in development in anticipation of the publication of Inchie Quilts later this year. For a current and complete catalog of workshops and lectures, including fees and terms, contact Nadine.

Those that got to attend the classes offered by Nadine Ruggles were so very lucky. She is an outstanding teacher and I learned more in 2 days than I had in 8 years. I cannot wait to bring her back for more.—Lisa C., Rheinland Pfalz Quilt Guild, Germany
