Workshop 06/25: Strippin’ and Stitchin’ With Paint Box. Easy strip piecing and triangles combined with Linda’s tips and tricks allow students a stress free project to perfect their 1/4” seam and cut the triangle shapes while making this fun and exciting new strip quilt. Additionally pulling together the supplies for this workshop couldn’t  be easier:  just one  2-1/2” strip roll plus two 1-yard cuts of coordinating fabric is all that is needed for this 48” x 48” quilt!

September Lecture (No Workshop)

Valerie Goodwin Speaker Sept 2022

Lecture at 09/19 Meeting: Mapping Narratives Using Fabric, Paint and Thread. A map is an abstract conception of a place. The person who makes the map makes choices about what to include, as well as what to leave out. Each map is thus a reflection of its maker and the story they want to tell.

Valerie shares how she uses maps to tell the story of a place using fabric, paint and thread. The lectures focuses on three types of maps:

Personal Narrative Maps
Fictional Map Narratives
Political/Sociological Narratives

Workshop 10/15: Ruler & Rotary Cutting Mat Bag with Cristie. When you go to a quilt class do you need an easy way to take your favorite rulers?
