Karla Alexander
"Lift the Quilts Out of Your Stash"

You will be looking at your stash in a whole new way and actually start using your fabric rather than just admiring it! Enjoy the confidence you’ll gain by exploring traditional and untraditional quilt methods by adding your own twist!  A trunk show with lots and lots of quilts will illustrate may different styles of quilts as well as subjects discussed.

Workshop February 10
Orderly Chaos

It’s always so much fun to discover a block that is fast and easy to piece that inspires you to make them again and again. That’s what you’ll find in this workshop!

While anyone can  duplicate someone else’s design, you’ll  learn to re-work these blocks, making them 100% your own. 

You’ll be happy to see how one simple block method will allow you to design table runners/toppers/patchwork for clothing, hand bags and more!

This workshop has it all: mastery, mystery, ease, playfulness and endless options.

Cheryl Malkowski
"Following the Creative Path"

This will be an hour-long trunk show in which we will hear about how Cheryl came to invent the chenille color stick technique and about the inspiration for her other four books. She says, “Every quilt has a story…My hope is for quilters to be who they are and follow their dreams. Sometimes they come true!”

Workshop March 10
Doodle Quilting

In this class, students use Cheryl’s best-selling book, Doodle Quilting, for exploring quilt motifs and how they work together.

We will explore options for continuous line quilting for backgrounds, all-over patterns, borders, and more.

Once you have these patterns stored in your muscle memory, they will easily transfer to your quilting.

Jane Connor
Stitch Exploration

Learn all about how to use your sewing machine’s stitches and functions to create new and innovative effects! Both Jane's lecture and workshop are called, “Stitch Exploration.”

“Today’s sewing machines offer a host of stitches and functions that can be overwhelming. In this class, I hope to excite you about your machine, and motivate you to learn to use the stitches and functions with more confidence.

In ‘Stitch Exploration,’ you will learn to catalog your stitches and apply functions to each stitch. We will put together designs and borders using our stitches.

Catherine Redford
The Language of Flowers

June brings us a lecture on a different but intriguing topic, “The Language of Flowers,” and a workshop, “Happy Scrappy Improv Quilts,” that feels like play instead of work. The lecture features a wide variety of quilts with flowers, many of which are beaded and embellished.

Workshop June 9
Happy Scrappy Improv Quilts

Have you ever looked at Modern Improv Quilts and not known where to start?

Bring a bag of scraps, a neutral solid, and your happy thoughts! We’ll look at a few examples, discuss some techniques, including adding narrow strips and gently curved piecing, and get to stitching.

Make one, and maybe two small wallhangings, ready to take home and quilt.

Natalie Barnes
"beyond the reef"

Natalie is the owner/designer for beyond the reef, a pattern-design company that she
started one rainy north shore morning on a lanai in Hanalei, Kauai, while drinking coffee
with author Jill Marie Landis. As a little girl, Natalie learned to sew, knit, and crochet
from her grandmother. After a successful career in the demanding commercial/corporate
interior design field in Los Angeles, Natalie decided it was time to live a new dream, and
put her talents to work in another area. She has never looked back. She is author of A
Modern Twist, by Martingale/TPP with contributions by Angela Walters. Her first fabric
line, Hand Maker for Windham Fabrics, is being shipped to quilt shops this Fall 2016.
Having always lived on the beach, she draws her inspiration for color and design from
the sea, the sky, and the land.

Workshop August 11
String Piecing Boot Camp

   

This is a concept class, or a theory class. The focus in this class will be on string piecing. We'll work with free form and foundation piecing. Then we'll take a look at what can be done with these string piecing elements. How about some appliqué? Triangles? Block arrangements? Half square triangle strips. Last but not least, we'll be talking about color and contrast and the use of both of these while working with string piecing.

**this is a working techniques class – we are not making a quilt, we are honing our techniques
