Guild Meeting Speaker – Doris Deutmeyer

Doris is a lifelong artist, teacher, and designer loving all things art, fabric and landscape. She has a B A in Art Education and is a former Elementary Art teacher having taught all age levels.  Her home based business, Fabrications by Doris, has evolved into a line of self published fused raw edge landscapes and mini quilt patterns.

We can’t go wrong by following her philosophy:

  • Stay connected to the earth, it is our greatest teacher.
  • Traditional quilt patterns have stories to tell about our roots. Knowledge about our roots helps to give us direction.
  • Fabric has always been an essential element in most women’s lives.
  • Work with passion.

Lecture: Picture This! - Photo to Wall

Are you ready to try something new? Do you have a favorite photo from a vacation or special place you would like to make into a quilt; but don’t know where to begin? Inspiration is everywhere; but good composition is key. Raw edge appliqué and creative display techniques will make your next art quilt fabulous.

This is a slide show filled with easy techniques and inspiration.

Workshops: TBA
