January In-house Workshops

We are incredibly lucky to have in our Guild so many quilters who are not only skilled, but who are very willing to share their talents and their time with others.

To sign up for any of the following workshops please contact Marie Girard (she’s in the “book”).

Get ‘er Done Workshop: Pat Clark, Shirley Swenson and Connie Brewer have offered to act as mentors for members who have some UFOs lurking in the closet. If you keep stumbling over a Hunter Star, a New York Beauty, a Judy Niemeyer Seasonal Table Runner or a Kim Diehl  Invisible Applique wall hanging, and you need a nudge to get back at it, here is your opportunity to pick the brain of someone’s who’s been there, done that.

Denim Vests: Evelyn Urbom will show us how to transform those old jeans taking up space in the dresser drawers into sweet little vests for ourselves or someone we love.

Free Motion Thread Painting: Te Pabon and Erika Assimus have something new up their sleeves and guess what! They’re willing to share it with us. Have no idea what thread painting is? Well, just maybe Te and Erika will bring some samples to our December Get Together. If you are interested in this, or any of the other workshops, sign up with Marie.

Charm Squares: Ideas and Demonstrations: Sue Stepp
Okay so Pat Clark has us all cutting fabrics into squares and they are beginning to pile up. Want to get some ideas on how to transform those 6-1/2” darlings into actual somethings? Well, Sue Steep understands your pain and is here to show you the way.

Purses: Anna Wang is willing to guide us in our quest for getting back to our “girly girl” days. There are times for our L.L.Bean totes, and there are times for our sweet little purses. Here’s our opportunity to make one of those glamour bags just for us. Maybe Anna can have one available in December to make us drool.
