I have been working to bring some speakers to New England. All the good MQG stuff seems to happen in places like Texas and Utah and it would be nice to have some more local workshops without the heavy travel fees! I have arranged for Sherri Lynn Wood to visit our guild, the Seacoast Modern Quilt Guild and we would like to invite you to reserve a spot as well!
Sherri will be visiting the Seacoast Modern Quilt Guild on Sunday, May 3, 2015 for a 7 hour workshop at the Old Town Hall, 491 Main Street, West Newbury, MA . The workshop will run from 9 am to 5 pm with an hour break for lunch. Lunch is be included in your workshop fee and will be catered.
The workshop we chose is Bias Strip Curves, described by Sherri below:
Bias Strip Curves
In this workshop you will learn to master the innovative improvisational technique of bias-strip piecing on the curve, with tips on how to flatten internal bubbles in the patchwork when they arise, and how to utilize the technique in both traditional and improvisational patchwork compositions. This is an advanced, original technique that takes time to master but it’s definitely worth the effort. Just imagine the possibilities! Most suitable for intermediate and advanced skill levels.
Sherri’s teaching focuses on improvisational process and technique and she has been sharing her love of that process for over 20 years now. She also has a new book coming out that she hopes to have in hand in time for our workshop. It can be preordered on Amazon:
This is a unique opportunity to work with Sherri here in New England and I hope you will jump at the chance!
