    Hi Quilters!  Let’s get together and make some pin cushions for the boutique! 

    These pin cushions are made from 100% wool felt and filled with finely crushed walnut shells.  There is very little machine sewing so you don’t need to bring a sewing machine.  I’ll have three machines set up for us to share.  You may choose which project you wish to make or make them both.  If you are unable to locate the wool needed for the project, please let me know in advance.  I’ll have a few kits available for sale at the workshop.  Feel free to bring a different pin cushion pattern if you just want to get together and sew.

    Skills required:  Familiarity with embroidery and blanket stitch is helpful but not required.  I’ll demonstrate in class.

    Registration online is required.  Limited to 10 participants.


    Lunch:  Bring a brown bag lunch, ice tea and water will be provided


    WOOL WILL BE PROVIDED

    General Supplies

    Embroidery needle
    Thimble

    Supplies specifically for Pumpkin Pin Cushions
    Orange, green and brown embroidery floss to match your wool

    Supplies specifically for Pineapple Pin Cushion

    Supplies provided by the workshop coordinator include
    Pattern

    In this workshop, you will first learn how to paint images with Procion dyes on cotton. Learning to control the dyes will be emphasized. Among other things, we will cover blending, layering, special effects and painting without bleeding. All of these techniques can be used to create images a complex as portraits or as simple as a line on a scarf. We will explore new ideas about how to use quilting to enhance the look of your painted cloth. The main objective is to use quilting lines to create depth, texture, tension, or shadowing which will give a new dimension to your quilt. The workshop is based on free-motion machine quilting but the design techniques can be adapted to hand quilting. Experience in machine quilting or hand quilting is required.

    Additional $40 Supply Fee (not included in workshop fee) is required and payable to Hollis on 1st day of class, July 6, 2018. Please come prepared.

    Students will create units that are cut from long strips and then sewn together and remade in a Seminole pattern. The strips can be very colorful and are suitable to be used in a small quilt, wall hanging, or as accent to brighten up a garment. American Indians originally developed the Seminole technique. Please note: this class will focus on Seminole techniques, as opposed to Seminole piecing.

    Students will create a small quilt or garment that will "speak" for them. Using a traditional or a contemporary pattern each student will be encouraged to create a one of a kind work that is reflective of the creator's personality or ethnicity or expresses a social or political sentiment and/or express a sense of humor. A variety of construction and embellishment techniques will be explored. Students will be encouraged to mix contrasting prints, explore ethnic fabrics, colors and textures and to add buttons, ribbons, beads or whatever is necessary to make the quilt into a personal statement.
