In addition to the lectures both our instructors will be teaching workshops this fall virtually at our guild. Guests are welcome to attend and we have a few spaces available.
Carole Lyles-Shaw will be teaching her Five by Five Variations workshop on September 22 and 29th, where you will have 2 sessions to select fabric, sew blocks and work on the layout. It’s beginner friendly–and it provides fun opportunities to challenge yourself to create an improvisational layout with the blocks.
More info can be found here: Carole Lyles Shaw Workshop
SOLD OUT- thanks to everyone for registering!
November 20th, Tamara Kate will be teaching her Lovely Day Quilt appliqué pattern workshop.
Raw edge appliqué is kind of like drawing with fabric in this fun, laid back class start to build the Lovely Day quilt, 1 block at a time, cutting, adhering, stitching with a quilt-as-you-go technique, and even embellishing with a bit of hand embroidery.
We are continuing with some amazing VIRTUAL program events this fall.
We hope you can join us!
Friday September 10th at 8pm Carole Lyles Shaw will be presenting a VIRTUAL lecture on What is Modern Quilting.
What Is a Modern Quilt? The Myths and the Magic!
This lecture and trunk show introduces quilters of all backgrounds to the modern quilt movement.
Intimidated by modern quilts or just confused or curious about this emerging trend in quilting? Carole dispels some of the myths and misunderstandings so you can appreciate this new style of creative quilt expression.
Saturday November 13th at 1:30pm Tamara Kate VIRTUAL lecture on Fabric Design
Tamara will talk of her creative journey within the worlds of fabric design and quilt making and share info on her 8 years (and counting) in the industry: how she got the gig, the process from idea to printed fabric, how she designs, her sources of inspiration, and many other tidbits she’s gathered during the makings of her 15+ collections.
We hope you can join our guild as we learn more about fabric design and what makes a modern quilt!
What a fantastic couple of Saturdays we had at our guild with David Owen Hastings!
We welcomed David at our guild meeting and he presented his Minimal Design Maximum Impact lecture and it was both inspiring and a great lead up to his workshop on the following Saturday.
During David's lecture he talked about his influences such as Gees Bend quilters, Gwen Marston, early Amish quilts and Nancy Crow.
David also explained his stitched paper collage workshop and how architecture is a great place to look for inspiration and how you can use photos of building and simplify them to pick out specific lines to build your quilt from.
And of course Modern Quilts., Designs of the New Century book is a fantastic coffee table book to also flip through for amazing quilts.
Then on the following Saturday we had our Mini Mod workshop where David showed us some of his gallery quilts and personal quilts in his home.
And then we got right into learning how to make our Mini Mod Quilts.
In addition to learning how to make the tiny accent fabric strips, quilt as you go for assembling the pieces we also learned how to do some big stitching to embellish our mini quilts.
Here are some finished mini quilts our guild members were able to accomplish in this class.
So many different styles and colours, in addition to the interesting textured fabrics- this workshop was amazing!
On May 26th, David has a free online workshop with Matt Macomber- Here is the LINK for more information
If you get the chance to attend a guild lecture with David or one of his online workshops, we highly recommend it!
Thanks so much David for a couple of great events!
