October 8: Maria Shell (mariashell.com) of Anchorage, Alaska, will present scenes from her quilting journey in a lecture titled “Traditional, Art, Modern”. Her quilts have been-- and are - all three! Her workshop “Kitchen Sink Quilting – the ART of Making Do” will be presented on Friday, October 9 & 10 in two sessions. We are still figuring out timing due to a big time zone difference.
November 12: Barbara Eikmeier, quilter, author and fabric designer from Kansas, will present her lecture “It’s All in the Sashing’s”- how to get that set of blocks, whether patchwork or applique, arranged with sashing’s and cornerstones. This will be followed by a two-part Friday and Saturday 6-hour workshop on the Back-Basting Applique technique and learning to make a curved border, and other applique techniques.
