Tuesday, February 27, 7:00 PM at Lifelong. Social meeting. The proposed designs for the next show quilt will be shown. After we all have seen those you are in for another Show & Tell......
When we started with the Show & Tell program at the second meeting of the month we asked members to bring their first quilt made and their latest one. By popular request we are repeating next Tuesday, February 27, asking you to bring in the first quilt you made or one of the first ones and a quilt that is much more current such as made last year, or this year, bring a top, we love to see how your quilt making changed through the years.
Tuesday, March 13, 7:00 PM at Lifelong Demo Night – Exploring Rulers
That's right! Workshops, plural! We have three workshops lined up for 2018!
Laura Wasilowski April 21-22
Laura will be presenting her workshop, "Couching Thread, Hidden Needle". "You’ll create several small art quilts while learning an improvisational method of construction with fused fabrics. These fused quilts act as your canvas for hand stitchery and take your work from flat to fabulous!" See artfabrik.com for more information. More information is available HERE. Laura's workshop will be preceded by a special lecture and trunk show at 7:00 PM on *Friday*, April 20th, at Lifelong.
John Kubiniec September 29
After enjoying John's lecture and trunk show in November, we decided to invite him back for a one-day workshop. We're still working out the details, but it will be a Drunkard's Path project. Details are forthcoming.
Karen Miller October 13
In addition to asking Karen to give a lecture and trunk show in September, we invited her to give a one-day wool appliqué workshop. Some of you may know of Karen's lovely work. She's going to modify her "redbird" (cardinal) piece to incorporate wool appliqué borders rather than pieced borders. Again, details are forthcoming.
We hope you'll mark your calendars and join us for these fun workshop offerings!
