    Join us to meet our special guest, Cindy Lohbeck, fiber artist and color specialist, for her presentation Diary of a Dyehard

    Having worked in textiles and fabric dyeing for over 30 years, Cindy Lohbeck is truly a DYEHARD at heartCindy was raised with a passion for creativity and color. Her mother taught her to sew at age 7, and she has worked with fabric ever since. With more than 25 years of experience as an interior designer, she has a love of textiles and an eye for color that is the foundation for her winning designs.

    She has worked as a professional faux finisher and muralist, and also owned a tie-dyed clothing business in the early years, all of which helped refine her color mixing skills. With the addition of quilting to her creative repertoire in 2002, all of her passions collided and Hands On Hand Dyes was born. Hands On Hand Dyes is a line of DIY (Dye It Yourself!) Kits for quilters developed by Cindy in Scottsdale, AZ. Committed to quality, convenience and simplicity, her hand-dye kits teach color mixing, dye techniques, and valuable lessons in fast, fun, and affordable methods. Her beautiful color pallets and value gradations are perfect for today’s busy quilter and make hand-dying fabric accessible to everyone.

    AAQG October General Meeting will be a HYBRID meeting – in-person at Westminster Presbyterian Church of Austin and virtual by ZOOM.

    Join us to meet artist, Natalya Khoroverand see her lecture Alternative Stitching Practices


    6:30 pm Arrive in-person or on Zoom; 6:45 pm Show and Tell; 7:00 pm Meeting; ~7:30 pm Program Presentation and Q&A

    Art for earth’s sake – Natalya is inspired by plastic pollution, overconsumption and the urban environment. She strives to use materials which would be condemned to the landfill and chooses to use the unusual techniques of stitching and sewing to bring her artwork to life.

    While her design inspiration is mainly drawn from the urban environment, it is also reliant on observations of flora and fauna around us, especially all the little details, like bubbles of rust on a railing, a gleaming reflection on a skyscraper or in a creek, and the ragged bark of a tree.

    Natalya’s lecture is Alternative Stitching PracticesWhat can you stitch on? Just about everything! Natalya will show examples which will motivate you and inspire you, sharing details of the pleasures and occasional pitfalls of working with each.  This lecture will broaden your understanding of what you can use in your art.
