Linda S. Schmidt
"Short Attention Span Quilting - Quilts Only"

This is a grand panorama of my development as an art quilter, starting with my Grandma’s quilt, my first blue ribbon quilt, and moving on through patchwork, story, portrait, landscape, abstract, and liturgical quilts.  All of the quilts have their own story, and each one is completely different from the next.

Grace Errea
"The Value of Value"

Color gets the credit but VALUE is what always makes a successful textile piece. Learn all about VALUE, how to see it, how to use it, and how to always come out with an amazing, successful piece by focusing on value and letting all else fall into place naturally.

Workshop March 9
Introduction to Heat Set Applique

In this class you will learn to use an applique technique so new and revolutionary, you will use nothing else once you try it. It is easy, foolproof and the results are always amazing.

This technique leaves the quilt and the fabric soft and manageable, not stiff and board-like, as fusible webs and glues do. The best however, is that you can do raw edge applique without any fraying edges!! This technique produces a no-fray raw edge applique as a result.

You will pick from one of the patterns below for the workshop.

"Whats New Pussycat"

Velda Newman
"A Painter's Approach to Quilt Design

This lecture is about inspiration and evolution. Through slides I show how I started, how I work now, and share a little bit about what I've learned and the obstacles I've encountered throughout my 20+ year creative journey. My intention is to encourage by example. I hope attendees will leave inspired - feeling that if I can do it they can too. I like to bring as many quilts as I can and am open to all questions.

Workshop May 11
Texture and Form: A Technique Class

Nature is an endless source of beauty and inspiration. With this in mind, learn how to get rid of the "flat" look and turn fabric into something interesting. These easy machine stitching techniques can be used for quilts or clothing. (Book reference: A Workshop with Velda Newman; available now @ Amazon.com or C & T Publishing.com.
