Workshop 9-3 via Zoom
Workshop Fee $50, which includes a PDF with written instructions and optional designs to paint on the landscape.
"Simple Landscapes with Stitch and Paint"
In this workshop, students will work on a wall hanging. They will learn how to cut and sew simple curves to prepare the background, without marking or pinning. Once the background has been finished and the basic landscape sewn, the design is drawn on the fabric. The piece will then be quilted in preparation for painting. A quilting demo will be offered with different background fillers. Painting techniques – including shading and highlighting – will be demonstrated.

2-Day Workshop and Evening Lecture featuring Sheila Frampton Cooper
November 6-7, 9-3 both days (Virtual)
Workshop Fee $50
In this workshop, students will compose a design, create a full-scale pattern on freezer paper, and assemble the forms using a technique called Appli-piecing, originally developed by Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry.
By using this technique, you can bring almost any complex abstract idea into quilt form. You will retain a clean, graphic look and when complete, you will have a quilt top pieced together with a 1/4” seam allowance.
Students will be provided with small compositions to assemble and become comfortable with the technique before they start designing.
Evening Lecture on November 7 at St. Philips at 7:00
