Mystic Hot Springs is Home to some magical workshops where Mystic Mike puts his creativity to task. His Quilt Studio features 2 Pfaff Sewing Machines, an A1 Serger and a A1 Long Arm Quilting Machine. Starting with his background in 3D art and animation, Mike creates modern, unconventional quilting designs inspired by the traditional log cabin quilt. Mike uses the paper piecing technique by printing his designs off on his printer. He prefers this technique due to it's ability to be highly accurate, yet fun and fast.
