Cornell Cooperative Extension Training Center


Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County is offering a second series of homesteading classes this fall at 6 p.m. on Thursdays at its training center, 4487 Lake Ave., Lockport.

The log cabin quilting class on Sept. 15 will teach how to create a log cabin quilt. This class is designed for beginning quilters but experienced quilters are also welcome. Participants will leave the class with at least one finished quilt block and the confidence to quilt more on their own. There are a limited number of sewing machines available for use during the class and people are encouraged to bring their own. Materials will not be provided for this class. A required materials list will be provided upon registration. The cost is $20.

Participants must preregister and pre-pay for each class. Class sizes are limited.
