About the workshop: 

Sew a bowl using fabric-wrapped rope.  Rope bowls are very hot on Pinterest and Etsy at the moment though they have been around for a while. They are fun to make (addictive!) and sew up quite quickly.  The bowls are practical and make a nice gift for women, men, and children.  Assorted shapes and sizes of bowls will be on display. Tips and tricks for more advanced bowls will be demonstrated.

Class is open to the publice.  Members $35, non-members $45.  Please register here to participate.

April 28: From Embroidery to Quilting with Dougal Walker – Cancelled

Date: No rescheduling will take place until more is known about when public gatherings will resume.

Location: Fabric Arts Studio 2nd floor Richmond Cultural Centre

Dougal Ann Walker is the designer of The Freckles Collection of whimsical stitchery and appliqué patterns. Combining hand-work with quilting techniques into a wall-hanging was the basic premise. Since first exhibiting at Quilt Market in 2000, the patterns have been distributed around the world and have been published in a number of magazines.

After moving to Ladner, B.C. in 2012 and working at The Quilted Bear for 4½ years, her interest shifted to scraps and teaching classes. Learning new techniques and the multitude of ways that scraps can be incorporated into a quilt became the challenge.

Art quilts are another part of her quilting personae. The world is full of inspiration: to take an idea, research it and develop it into a wall-hanging, quite often using many techniques until the desired effect is reached. It is one of the best parts of her quilting journey. A few of her pieces have traveled to different shows and many have won awards at Guild shows and challenges.
