Expanding Your Horizons

2022 is the year that we are entering into and offering class in a variety of different projects. We are expanding your horizons and giving you more options and techniques to use in your own creations.

We have entered into the art quilt arena already. We have offered several classes introducing art quilting. Tana LaDuke and Beverly Hart are both members of AQuA, Grand Junctions local art quilt guild. They have been sharing methods they use to inspire ideas for their quilts. Both have very different methods and ways of seeing art quilts, one of the great things about art quilting. There is no right answer; there is only, "What If." We will be scheduling more classes with this dynamic duo throughout the year, so be sure to check our calendars and newsletters.

Beverly Hart is teaching an improvisational (improv) quilting class in early May. Improv quilting, like improv drama, doesn't use a pattern (or script). You take what you have, piece it together, and see what you get. Bev loves doing improv quilting, and many of her pieces use this technique. It can be planned or controlled improv or it can be wildly scrappy and serendipitous. The choice is yours. Pictured above is an example of one of Bev's improv quilts, which is currently hanging in the shop.

Lea McComas, a fiber artist from Boulder, is coming out in September to teach us her technique for creating portraits in fabric. She is an award-winning, nationally acclaimed artist, whose work is absolutely stunning.

This raw-edge applique technique can be used to do a portrait of people or pets. Space is limited, so sign up during the early-bird period and secure your spot. This is going to be a fabulous 2-day event!

We are continuing to strive to bring you something new and exciting to expand your horizons. Keep watch on our newsletters, emails, and social media posts to see what's coming up.
