Lecture & Trunk Show Sunday, March 11
Drawing with Fabric Workshop Saturday, March 10
A strip of bias is like a line from a pencil.  Learn ways to make and use bias tape appliqué to “draw” your own quilts.  Whether you want to draw a picture or something more abstract, you’ll have fun creating your own unique quilt!

Lecture & Trunk Show Sunday, June 10
Improvisational Paper Piecing Workshop Saturday, June 9
This workshop is based on one of the three design approaches that I share in my second book, Improv Paper Piecing: A Modern Approach to Quilt Design. This class is technique and design based, all about approaching your paper pieced block designs improvisationally. You will design and sew your own block and work on a quilt layout using alternate grid work, negative space and other elements of modern design.

Incorporating Curves in Modern Quilt Design Workshop Saturday, October 13
We'll talk about how Drunkard's Path and quarter circle rulers can be used for exciting modern curvy designs. Students learn how to sew a quarter circle using glue basting, as well as how to blend curves together when piecing. Remaining class time will be spent practicing with my patterns or with students designing their own curvy quilts.

Fabric Dyeing Workshop May 5
Hand-dyed fabrics add a unique touch to your quilts and sewing projects. Learn the basics of low-water immersion dyeing with fiber-reactive dyes and leave with quilter's cotton dyed in colors of your choosing, as well as enough knowledge to continue your experimentation at home, if you wish.
