and lecture on April 7, 2017.
This half-day workshop—held on Friday, April 7 from 9 am. to 1 pm.—will be packed with tips for working with vintage fragments and ways to showcase these treasured pieces in new quilts. Following Mary’s unique approach, workshop attendees will use vintage textiles to create a wonky star with plenty of space to incorporate favorite quilting designs. This workshop is about embracing the magic of combining the love of vintage with a 21st century aesthetic. Attendees will also enjoy quilts from Mary’s latest book and exhibit, Twisted: Modern Quilts with a Vintage Twist.
The cost of the workshop is $40 for guild members or $55 for non-members. Guild members should contact Choo Choo Guild treasurer, Sherry Baldwin for payment. Non-guild members can e-mail Cristy at: clarkadams at aol dot com or Veronica at: veronicaquilts at gmail dot com for payment information.
