Lecture: "Crazy About Stitches" (aka A Is For Appliqué)"

Sharon is a well-known local teacher and quilt pattern designer. Among other things, she is known for her applique patterns and techniques.

Sharon says about this lecture, "For all of those out there that are Not too crazy about the 'A' word 'appliqué' and for those of you who are veterans of appliqué, we hope to expose you to many different types and methods. This will be especially helpful if you have searched for some method of appliqué that you could possibly like. I have found 22 ways to appliqué so far but not to worry, I won't be able to get them all in one hour. Let's also consider if you will be stationary working in only one space or if you will be traveling with your project. We will demonstrate 2 kinds of hand stitches but lots of shapes. There will be real quilts with embellishments to examine that you can see up close and touch. We hope this program will get you excited about appliqué, if not it is a great picture show."

This will be no workshops this month.
