attending CCC. She has been
quilting for four years now. She
made her first quilt while she was
in high school in a home
economics class. Since then she
has made six other quilts.
Kristi said that a high point in
quilt making was when she won a
third place ribbon in the
Clackamas County Fair.

found out that teaching was not

Presently she has been fully oc­

past five years.
“I’ve been writing scripts, ac­

Bragg states of her drama ex­

dramatically inundated. Bragg,
however, doesn’t mind a bit.

which includes class supplies. The
classes will be held from 6:30 to

hoop or frame. She sews the quilt
10-12 stitches per inch. Then she
sews up the edges. She sews the
quilt by machine and by hand.
It usually takes Kristi about six
months to make a quilt.
Kristi said that after spending
all of that time on making the
quilt she usually cannot separate
with it by giving it to people as a
gift. If she does give them away
she gives them to people who she
visits often.
Kristi plans to enter a quilt in

The class can be taken just for
interest, but the primary goal of
most students, said Berquist, is to
obtain a private pilot’s license. A
private pilot license requires tests
to be passed in both ground and
