Workshops

I have project workshops and technique workshops. Currently I am working on adding a few new workshops to the offerings. There is an option to download a PDF, which includes a description, supply list, and photo.

3-D Explosion... two day workshop

Would you like to create your own art quilt, but not sure where to start? Learn to draw curved lines and choose fabrics to create an explosion of the third dimension- depth! Then construct your new creation and get suggestions for the quilting design to enhance the illusion. My quilt Scrolls in the photo above is the inspiration for this two day workshop. Supply List is for the two day workshop. Supply List 2 is for the three-five day workshop.

Lecture: So, You Want To Make an Art Quilt?!

Would you like some inspiration to get started making art quilts? Are you afraid that itís too hard and only gifted people can make art quilts? Then this lecture is for you! I will talk about how to get started making art quilts from a traditional stand point and work my way up to making the giant art quilts like the 3-D Explosion series. I will discuss art fabrics and techniques to make them as well as show samples. This is a trunk show if you are within driving distance!


Mosaic Madness.... 6 hour workshop

Here is a class that doesn't require a sewing machine! We'll be having fusible fun and I will share some bits of information about color while we spend the day creating the blocks for this mosaic quilt. Optional: Bring your sewing machines if you can't resist. If one shows up, I will demonstrate free motion quilting and binding by machine.
