NO SEWING MACHINES needed, only a spirit of adventure! In this playful workshop, you’ll create artful weavings of fabric strips and ribbons, audition sequences and arrange blocks in a row to make a Skinny quilt/table runner, wall hanging, album cover, pillow top, Christmas stocking, or project of any size. Along the way, I'll help you develop a sense of design and com position, value and color, movement and shape, balance and rhythm to kick your artistry up several notches. I'll share lots of materials and tips on quick and easy ways to sandwich, quilt, and finish the edges of your tapestry after you get home.
Note on fabrics: while you can bring a bin of scrap fabrics, a jelly roll, etc, Elly suggests you start with a need, e.g. a table runner to go in your dining room, or a couple of pillows needed to spruce up a sofa, or a giant tote to carry your quilts in progress, or a landscape that cries for an additional woven border. This helps you bring together a color palette for the project.
