Education

Program

Program for the fall/winter will include a traditional stitching project and something for members who want to explore design ideas of their own.

  • Crazy Quilt Purse 
  • Sketch Book – members will create a sketch book learning techniques demonstrated by our very own members.  A sketch book is  like a diary to record visual ideas to aid in the process of design.  Regular practice in recording visual ideas leads to an increased confidence with the process of design and encourages creativity.  The sketch book does not have to be technically perfect.  It is a means to an end on an end in itself.
