Crafter’s weekend planned at MPCC Broken Bow Campus

Monday, February 19, 2024

A few spots still remain for the series of crafting classes that will be offered at the Mid-Plains Community College Broken Bow Campus this weekend.

Sunflower or Geometric Outdoor Barn Quilt

Activities will begin from 1-4 p.m. Friday with a free Sunflower or Geometric Outdoor Barn Quilt workshop. Participants will choose from the two options.

The design for the sunflower barn quilt will be drawn out ahead of time and ready for color marking and tape. Those who prefer the geometric option can select from 48 designs ranging from simple to complex.

Instructor Rose Mapel will explain how to dissect a pattern and transfer it to the barn quilt blank. Participants will need to take a hair dryer, a heavy-duty extension cord and yellow Delicate Surface FrogTape®, preferably 1.41-inch width, to the class.

Crafter’s Retreat

The fun will continue from 4-9 p.m. Friday with a Crafter’s Retreat at the campus. The retreat will provide an opportunity for inspiration, socialization and time to enjoy an interruption-free weekend of working on personal sewing, scrapbooking or other artistic projects.

Projects can be locked up at the end of class and finished Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. The fee is $10.

Creating Photo Memory Letters

Also on Saturday, the campus will host a Creating Photo Memory Letters workshop from 9 a.m. to noon.

Participants will create a unique display using wooden letters and their favorite pictures. Attendees will be required to take their own photos and are asked to let the campus know ahead of time what letters they would like to use. The cost is $40.

Registration for any of the workshops can be done online at or by calling the campus at (308) 872-5259. The deadline to register is 5 p.m. Wednesday.
