Teaching Quilting Workshops in Preble County


The Visual Arts Center of Preble County (Ohio) recently got a grant that allowed them to get eight sewing machines so now they can offer sewing workshops and classes. The machines arrived on Friday, Oct. 28 and the next day I taught a workshop on making quilted postcards.

Then yesterday, Nov. 5, I taught a 6-hour workshop on making a small art quilt. We covered piecing, using fusibles, machine raw-edge applique, couching yarn, and making a facing (knife edge) binding.

Here we are (I'm on the right) with our "Summer Barn" art quilts. They seemed to have a lot of fun and we were all grateful to Island Batik who donated the fabric that we used.

The Arts Center is also currently hosting an fiber exhibit featuring myself, Irene Friedman, and Sharon Shute. The exhibit runs through Nov. 25.
