Our April Sew-in will be on April 26, 2015, 10am - 4pm
This Sunday will be a workshop with Elizabeth Olwen!
Cost: $40 + supplies (graph paper, pencils, eraser, markers or coloured pencils, scissors, rotary cutter, thread, sewing machine, fabric, ruler, sewing machine, pins, calculator, etc.)
Background: Elizabeth Olwen is a surface pattern designer from Toronto. She designs patterns for many products, including fabrics, working with Cloud9 Fabrics as well as Joann’s, and turning her collections into modern quilt designs. You can find more about Elizabeth and her approach to quilt design in the current issue of Uppercase Magazine. (Yes, she’s a star!). Her fabric collections include Grey Abbey, Wildwood and Morning Song.
Details: In this conceptual design workshop, Elizabeth will walk you through her steps for designing a quilt. She will touch on considerations for quilt design, showcasing a fabric collection (designer or custom), sketching out ideas and working them into a quilt design of your own. Depending on the size of quilt top you design, you may or may not finish the top in its entirety.
***This workshop does NOT involve the teaching of sewing techniques or mathematics involved in quilt top logistics.
Maximum Participants: 20
