Workshop: Saturday, Jan. 22, 2011
8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
This is designed to give you an opportunity to learn or master one or two new techniques. Some of these you will be able to use on any quilt that you have in progress for our quilt show. This will be great for beginners or even if you have been quilting for years.
Choose 1 or 2 mini classes 90 minutes each
Price: $15 per session (you may chose 1 or 2 sessions)
1. Mitred Corners with Judy Whitehead – This technique is used on a border and makes it look like a picture frame. It is great to use this technique with striped fabric.
2. Free-motion quilting with Kathy Johansen — We know what we are supposed to do but how many of us can successfully accomplish it? Kathy will actually watch what you are doing and critique your style and assist you so that you can be more successful.
3. Couching with DeLane Rosenau — This maybe a new technique to you or one you have never tried. DeLane will show you how your quilts can take on another totally different look using this technique. She will explain what it is, what items to use, and how to do it.
4. Facings with Grace Howes — Facings are an alternative way to finish a quilt. Facings can be used to finish a traditional 4-sided quilt or you can use it to finish an irregularly shaped quilt.
5. Zig-zag finish with Liz McNabb – This is another technique to finish a smaller quilt, and will give you a good tight zigzag finish. Liz will teach Judy Whitehead’s technique as she can’t teach two classes at once.
