Join Mary Shepherd for a fun one-day embellishing workshop!


Learn from an embellishing Master!  Make that good quilt fantastic!

A long time AAQG member, Mary regularly exhibits at Quiltfest and has taught many quilters how to add value and richness to their quilts with embellishment.  Many of you may have attended her High Tea events in prior years.   

In this workshop, you be introduced to techniques such as silk ribbon embroidery, hand embroidery, beading, and decorations with buttons. 

Focus on the technique you want to master or try your hand at many.

Pre-workshop homework:  Mary will provide a pattern or a marked fabric foundation to piece a small crazy quilt block.  Instructions and the pattern will be emailed to you.  Consider using silks and special fabrics.  Piece this block before the workshop.  Then spend your time embellishing – not sewing. 

Supply list:  Bring your pieced crazy block to the workshop.  All other supplies will be provided.
