Woven Quilts
Presented by: Nancy Glasgow

We are sure you have all felt some nostalgia when stopping at Carolyn’s display of pot holder looms in the front of our store. Probably all of you have created some of these as you were growing up.  You may even have some hanging in your kitchen.    But…. have you ever considered weaving a quilt together?  Nancy discussed with us how that is possible, while giving us an introduction to Anna Faustino’s techniques as shown in her book "Simply Stunning Woven Quilts".­   We hope the samples and explanations inspired attendees to try something new.

It all started with a Onesie!
Presented by: Nancy Glasgow

We took a closer look at two very similar patterns, some applications of several machine feet that we may already have in our collection but have not been using, and a special introduction to using the serger.

Nancy encouraged us to think ”outside the box” as she shared her latest “creations”.

Breezy Weave Bags designed by Aunties Two Patterns

Lisa Ross showed us some ins and outs of the Breezy Weave Bags designed by Aunties Two Patterns.

The bags are made with basic techniques, unique design options and finish with gorgeous results.

Lisa gave us some critical tips to create a one of a kind creation that will have people asking: "Where did you buy that bag...I want one!"

We can smile with pride and say: "Thank you.... you cannot buy it; I made it myself."

Marks Are Due, This Time Of Year - So:

Our "consumer reporter", Sylvia Greene tested and evaluated products to mark fabric - and passed onto us her opinions!

Which ones get a star...which one's to avoid?

How to remove the markings?

And, how do you decide which one is best for your current project?

In March
Meet Peggy Forster

Peggy started quilting with Georgia Bonsteel's first show on WUNC. When everyone in her family had a bed quilt, she switched to wall art quilts.

Not willing to repeat the same process over and over, she looked for inspiration wherever it could be found. Her work is a mix of various methods and is constantly evolving.
