    It is with great regret that the Austin Area Quilt Guild Board has made the decision that, as a result of the ongoing situation with Covid-19 and with an abundance of concern for our members, vendors and attendees, we will not be able to hold the Capital of Texas QuiltFest on September 25-27, 2020. 

    The show will be scheduled in 2022 as soon as Palmer Center releases dates. So, please stay tuned.

    Expect the Unexpected

    Sometimes inspiration comes from the strangest places- the old, the broken, the cast aside.

    Join me in a short journey following some of my works from the initial spark to completed piece.

    As a lifelong artist, I enjoy looking at the world through an interpretive eye, and love to celebrate each individual’s unique outlook.

    Students will create improv blocks to be used in a small or large piece. The blocks may vary in size and shape and can be very complex or quite simple. This is a great class for becoming comfortable with the process of creating without an initial plan, while at the same time, retaining a little structure. Sheila will demonstrate construction techniques for sewing curved seams and discuss some of the challenges you may run into with spontaneous design and piecing.


    Registration Begins: March 1 2020

    In this out-of-the-box class you will learn Esterita’s new technique for assembling fused sheers.  No templates, no points or seams to match,  just free cutting to create a dynamic and expressive portrait. Sheer fabrics are the building blocks for a translucent shimmering portrait that will glow and sparkle while adding depth to your fiber art piece. See the possibilities when new shapes and colors are created by simply overlapping transparent fabrics. Add more creative tools to your fiber art repertoire.
