Vice President/Education Report

 

By Karrie Youngblood

It has been a cold and wet summer so far, more time for quilting! 😊 We have had a great time in our classes so far this summer. I heard wonderful things about Barb Steckel’s Scrap Crazy quilt class and Pam Ventgen’s class in July was so much fun. It is always amazing to see all the different color combinations people pick and I am looking forward to seeing some finished projects at our general membership on October 2nd.
 

Our next class is Dana Lewis’s Chic Sisters. I have picked my colors and am really looking forward to learning how to use the Wonder curve ruler. There are so many amazing patterns you can learn with this ruler.

There is still a lot of room in this class so call me if you are interested in the class. 907-399-2085.

When

Fri, Sep 10 - Sat, Sep 11, 2021, all day

Sept 10th, and 11th. Chic Sisters and scalloped borders. $75

There is still room left in Dana's class, please let me know if you would like to join the fun.  

Dana Lewis will be teaching Chic Sisters pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful. This quilt measures 60x72”. In this class you will learn how to use the Wonder Curve ruler. This ruler can be used for so many different patterns, look up Sew Kind of Wonderful on the internet and check it out.

On Saturday Dana will be teaching how to scallop borders for the scallop borders class, you will need to bring a completed quilt top that has been quilted, but not the binding put on. This can be your choice of size down to a large table runner.

For the summer of 2022 we have some exciting teachers coming up from the lower 48. 

Katie Pedersen, is a national quilting teacher and has taught at QuiltCon for many years.  Check out her website for her style and projects.  Sew Katie Did.  She will be teaching June 10th and 11th 2022.  Project is still to be determined.

Mark Sherman is an international Art Quilt teacher.  He has some amazing quilts you can check out at Remarkable Quilts. The classes haven't yet been determined.  

Our local teacher/Designer Brenda Clyde will be teaching an original quilt pattern on Sept. 9th and 10th, 2022.  Project to be determined. 

I am currently contacting teachers for the summer of 2023 and am anticipating some wonderful learning opportunities for our guild.  Please contact me if you have any suggestions for teachers you would like to see come and teach.
