HANNAWA FALLS -- The Town of Colton Tourism & Beautification Committee will present its next barn quilt workshop & painting session May 27-29 in Hannawa Falls at Hounds Haven.

The goal of the event is to introduce participants to barn quilts and to build confidence to paint barn quilts. Ruth McWilliams, as the town’s Tourism & Beautification Committee Coordinator, will provide an overview about barn quilts and the basics from inspiration to installation.

Through hands-on activities participants will learn about and practice the basic steps.

Space is limited to twenty barn quilt projects in order for the presenter and helpers to provide guidance and assistance.

All participants will either paint their own barn quilts or assist others, including the Tourism & Beautification Committee which takes orders and paints barn quilts for others.
