For a summer ‘22 highlight, popular quilt designer and teacher Katie Pedersen of Sew Katie Did in Seattle will teach a two-day class for us on Friday, June 10 and Saturday, June 11. The Friday project is called Strip Tease. You will refine your improvisational quilting skills in this modern quilt block workshop. By merging one construction method with multiple string piecing techniques, you will simultaneously create large string blocks and mitered log cabin blocks that appear both chaotic and controlled. Saturday’s lesson will be Double Trouble, a fun quilt block and design workshop that merges a traditional half-square triangle block with an improvisational stitch and flip triangle technique. Classes will be held at the Christ Lutheran Church in Soldotna. Cost is $150. Class is from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm each day. Class size is limited, so sign up soon by contacting Karrie at firstname.lastname@example.org
In August we are welcoming quilt artist, teacher and designer Mark L. Sherman - Quilt Teacher, Lecturer, Art and Design (remarkablequilts.com)
Mark will be teaching two classes August 5-6th. On the 5th we will be participating in his hand applique by machine, learning his techniques on how to make an applique project look like it is done by hand but is done by machine. In this class we will be making his Remarkable butterfly. On Friday the workshop will be his Golden Feather class. This is a new workshop he is teaching, and we will not only learn how to make these incredible feathers, but we will also be painting them too. The two-days of classes is $60 plus the cost of each kit. Each kit cost will be $50-60 depending on the availability of supplies.
We are hoping we will have trunk shows for both these teachers, I will have more details as we get closer to the summer.
