May 1, 2014 – Pat Yamin

Lecture: Trunk Show

Pat Yamin, president and founder of Come Quilt With Me, is well known in the quilting industry. She has appeared on many television and radio quilt shows, the most recent being The Quilt Show with Ricky Timms and Alex Anderson. Her company manufactures templates and other tools that assure accuracy and shorten the time necessary to make a quilt. She is the first person to invent a rotating turntable named the Brooklyn Revolver TM which is the "original cutting and turning mat."

For more than 40 years, Pat has been designing quilt patterns, templates, making quilts, judging, leading seminars, writing quilt books, and teaching how to make a quilt. Released in the spring of 2013 is Simple Super One-Patch Quilts. Her other books are: Two-Patch Scrap Quilts, One-Patch Scrap Quilts, and Back to Basics Quilt Templates and Patterns Explained which were all published by the American Quilter's Society. Look What I See Quilts was published by the American School of Needlework.

In addition to designing, teaching, traveling and vending at quilt shows, Pat also organizes and runs quilting retreats throughout the United States.

Friday, May 2 Workshop: Storm at Sea

One of the most popular of traditional quilt patterns is the Storm At Sea. This seven piece template set is a time saver and makes rotary cutting a breeze. One piece which people often think is a 60 degree diamond, is not, which helps to create the curve or optical illusion to the overall pattern. The block is 12", followed by the rest being 9".

Saturday, May 3 Workshop: Quilted Fans

Quilter's Fan is a favorite Kansas City Star newspaper quilt pattern from the 1930's. Perfect for learning hand piecing or machine piecing techniques, sewing concave and convex seams. Discover the process to assemble eight-inch blocks with 16 blades, which creates a pinwheel center. Choose to work with light and dark fabric scraps, or the feed sacks that were so popular in that era.
