Oct 12  930-3:30 - Improvisational Piecing

 Do you want to learn to let loose with your piecing? In this workshop students will get tips and tricks for making fun, spontaneous quilts.  As each student works on her own improvisational piece there will be ample time for experimentation and real time problem solving.

Supply List

•    Sewing machine in good working order
•    Basic sewing supplies (pins, needle for machine, seam ripper etc.)
•    Scissors
•    Rotary cutter, mat, and a couple of your favorite acrylic rulers.
•    Neutral thread
•    3, 1/3 yards of solid fabrics – 1 light, 1 medium, 1 dark value all in the same color family
•    Fabric scraps from your stash – an assortment of light, medium, and dark values. Now I know you’re going to ask me how many scraps and how big? That’s hard to quantify – but a grocery bag worth of scraps, whatever sizes you have will work. Remember this is Improvisational Piecing – we’ll improv with whatever you come up with!

Oct. 13 12:30-3:30 - Map Quilts

In this workshop each participant will make a map of a location central to the group, which will give them the steps needed to create maps of their own favorite locations. (There is an additional kit fee of $5 that pays for the printing of the paper template map, payable to Timna Tarr.)

Supply List:

-Sewing Machine
-Basic Sewing Supplies, including small scissors
Iron/Ironing Mat

Nov. 9 9:30 - 3:00 Piec-lique : This is Mandy’s favorite technique. She learned it from her friend Sharon Schamber who has written a book: Piec-lique: Curves the new way.  This involves using freezer paper templates and glue basting. It can be done by hand or machine. For this workshop we will be making a traditional block.
