Today I attended our local quilt guild's first meeting for 2009. They had a presentation given by some of our local quilt shops. One of the shops made a big deal of "scrap therapy", which I think is a way to cut up leftovers to be used in quilt patterns sold specifically for those sizes. Before you can take a class, you are required to take a "cutting" class to learn how to cut. Has anybody done this yet? What is so special about the cutting classes? Economically, things are getting pretty ugly around here, and I have to be more judicious with my quilting budget.
