  • Learning Stations! May 23, 2019 The Education Committee will set up multiple learning stations to demonstrate various techniques, ideas, tools, etc. This night is always a lot of fun as our own members show some of the things they have found to make quilting easier, faster, or more fun. It’s also a great way to learn about new techniques or tools that you may have seen but weren’t quite sure whether to try. Contact: Education Committee.

  • Valerie Funk, June 27, 2019
    Modern Quilt Artist Trunk Show Valerie will talk about her journey to becoming a modern quilt artist, how she developed her pattern, and her journey to becoming a quilt teacher.

  • Laura Murray, July 25-27, 2019
    Lecture: Fabulous Fusible Applique with Stamps and Paintstiks. Learn an innovative method using Paintstiks and stamps to create richly colored, fusible backed shapes that are layered and fused to a background fabric. The result is dazzling stars, kaleidoscopes, painted tiles, and cathedral windows quilt blocks, all accomplished without sewing a single stitch. Laura Murray’s website: www.lauramurraydesigns.com
    Friday Workshop (9am-4pm): Creating the Wow Factor with Paintstiks. We will spend the morning exploring various ways you can use Paintstiks to transform plain fabric into bold graphics. This includes rubbings, stenciling, drawing, shading and more. In the afternoon you will use these techniques and Laura's StarBuilder stamps to create your own one-of-a-kind star design which can be incorporated into a future project. Kit fee $20. Member cost: $25 Non-member cost: $50
    Saturday Workshop (9am-4pm): Queen’s Court Sampler. Create a one-of-a-kind sampler for use as a table runner or wall hanging using Laura’s Paintstiks and three of her unique stamp sets. You do not need to take the Friday class as Laura provides a short intro to the techniques. Note that in both classes we will enjoy the use of her paints, stencils, stamps and other supplies. This is a great opportunity to try these products out before buying! Kit fee $25: Member cost: $25 Non-member cost: $50. Contact: Debbi Dillman.
