2011 – Fall Classes

August 4, 2011

It’s registration time for classes at Waukesha County Technical College, Madison College – Watertown and Nancy’s Notions Quilting Expo! Here are the courses I’ll be teaching, along with dates, times, pictures and sign up information. I hope to see many of you this Fall!

WCTC

I have a quick correction to my first Open Lab class which was to begin on Thursday, September 8th. When I made out the original schedule I didn’t know that I would be blessed with the opportunity to teach at Nancy’s Notions Quilting  Expo once again. Therefore, the Open Lab will actually begin September 15th and run through October 6th. Sorry for any inconvenience, but I’m hoping many of you will attend the show in Madison instead :-).

By the way…Wendy’s classes are listed at WCTC too, so don’t forget to check them out :-)!

Quilting – Open Lab – Here’s your chance to finish those workshop projects, complete a UFO or two, or start something completely new! During this 12-hour course, students will learn a different aspect of finishing each week.

Nancy’s Notions Quilting Expo

9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 8-10
Exhibition Hall at the Alliant Energy Center, Madison, Wis.

I will be presenting a lecture at 8:30 daily called “Which Design Where?” -The top is done; now how do you quilt it? If you want to do it yourself, but don’t know where to begin, this lecture is for you. Learn simple ways to make your creation useful, beautiful and, above all, finished! Bring a top of your own to be “brainstormed.”

I’ll also be presenting a 3 hour hands on workshop from 1-4 daily
entitled “French Braid – Quilt As You Go”  

 

Add pizzazz to a traditional braid with chains of high-contrast squares. By stitching the strips together on top of quilt batting and backing fabric, the quilt is done along with the piecing. A table runner will be made in class but instructions for a lap size quilt will be provided.
