BLUEFIELD, Va. (WVVA) - The Patchwork Quilters organization is hosting its ‘Fall Fling’ this weekend at Southwest Virginia Community College’s Bluefield Campus.

Jennifer Payne and Betty Watson with the group stopped WVVA @ Noon with Joshua Bolden by to discuss why the fling is perfect for those looking to get a start in the craft.

“I just like the variety of projects. We’re close to Christmas you could come in for the day and learn a new [skill] and you’ve handmade a gift for some one very special,” said Jennifer Payne
