Crochet/ Sewing/ Quilting  

If you were lucky enough to learn to sew at your grandmother’s knee, you are way ahead of the game. If not, you are still in luck, because ACE can fill that role! Our fiber arts classes include basic sewing skills as well as more involved fiber arts such as quilting, which can really come in handy when baby gifts are called for!
