Lacey J. Hill: trunk show and workshops

November 15, 2013

Lacey J. Hill of Golden Thyme Designs, who hails from Hillsdale, NJ, will be our guest in November. You can visit her Web site at She describes herself as “a self professed Fabric-aholic. I love color and my stash reproduces spontaneously!” Sound familiar?

Full-Day Workshop, “Jackets that Fit Your Style”: Friday, November 15, 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at Grace Church (sizes: 0-5 ). Limit: 20 students. Cost: $40 for Wiltwyck members ($45 for non-members), includes $10 pattern fee. Your choice of the jacket style: Asian Inspiration or Keystone Jacket.
The Keystone jacket requires more piecing than the Asian one. Each section of this jacket uses a different technique. The sleeves of the Asian Inspiration jacket might look pieced, but it’s actually an all-over large-scale Kona Bay fabric. Both jackets patterns can be altered to fit each person’s fabric choices. We’ll be planning out the jackets in class so you will have a definite plan of action to take home.

Visit Lacey’s gallery at to see photos of her jackets
or visit her student gallery at for inspiration.

The jacket pattern is based on the rectangle, so construction of the jacket is similar to a quilt. A simple fabric foundation technique is used for the layout and design. The foundation fabric can be muslin, fleece, or flannel, so the drape of the jacket is flowing rather than stiff. In this workshop each participant will design and create a jacket that fits her unique size and personality. The jacket may be as elaborate or sedate as you wish. The goal is to create a jacket that "Fits Your Style”.  There will be sample jackets in each size available for determining the basic size. With measuring tapes in hand, we will adjust the pattern to accommodate different cup sizes and varying sleeve and hem lengths. You will leave the workshop with a pattern that fits your personal proportions.
Because wearable art is very personal, the fabrics we quilt with may not necessarily be the fabrics we would wear. Look in your closet and see which color looks best on you. Then design your jacket around that color scheme. Bring an assortment of fabrics ranging from light to dark. You will use darker fabrics toward the side seams and lighter fabrics in the middle of the panels.
The first half hour to 45 minutes of the workshop is fitting and design ideas. Throughout the day, we will be discussing ways for you to use your current quilting techniques to personalize your jacket.
