EAC’s quilting classes expanded

THATCHER, AZ—With the retirement of 16-year veteran quilting instructor, Florene Shurtz, Eastern Arizona College’s quilting classes changed to include several new sections, a new instructor, and additional sections for some existing instructors.

Diane Allred now teaches two quilting classes: a 1-5 p.m. Monday afternoon class (section #0508) and an 8 a.m.-Noon Wednesday class (section #1404). Both sections are taught at the Family and Consumer Resources Building (FCRB) on the Thatcher Campus.

Ann Stegen teaches one of her quilting classes at the Senior Citizen Center on Tuesday afternoons from 1-4:20 p.m. (section #5645) and another section at the FCRB on Tuesday evenings from 5-9 p.m (section #1403).

Becky Post offers quilting classes on Tuesday (section #1407), Wednesday (section #1405) and Thursday (section #1406) from 1-5 p.m. also at the FCRB.

Bunny Humphrey offers a quilting class at Pima High School on Wednesday evenings from 6-9:45 p.m. (section #5326).

Rita Standage offers a morning class at Creative Pursuits on Main Street in Safford on Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m.-12:20 p.m. (section #5644).

Seating is limited in all of EAC’s quilting sections and the classes are filling up fast. So early registration is strongly encouraged. EAC Fall 2007 class registration can be accomplished by any of the following three ways:
