Academy of Applique 2017 in Williamsburg, VA

Once again, I am very excited to be teaching a 3-day workshop at Academy of Applique in Williamsburg, VA 2017 (Feb. 27-March 1). 

Join us to applique this Baltimore Garden Woven Basket, and fill it with flowers inspired by antique applique quilts. Choose from a variety of applique techniques, including options for beginners and new techniques for advanced applique artists. Start with easy basket weavers to build your basket.

Learn to needleturn applique with freezer paper on top. Try my unique and sure-fire method for taming points, bumpless curves, and deep inner V’s without fray.

Sew Paisley Roses in hand on a foundation, and try your hand at “twisted” applique for added dimension.

Discover tricks to maneuver parts that overlap and underlap on a triple-loop bow. Add a bit of reverse applique and a perfect padded circle.

Sprinkle in a few edge-ruched flowers and embellish with fringe.

Design a multicolor spinning flower, or try your hand at inked embellishments on a simple one-piece white flower.

Students love my video projection system so everyone can watch closeups of my techniques right from their chair.  As of today 1/25/17, there are still 3 seats available, but it is only a month away, so don’t wait any longer to register!

Keep Stitching!
