Date: February 22, 10am-4pm

Lorna Shapiro says “My 35-year working career was “left brain” focused, working in IT and as an Associate Dean. I retired and my right brain came out to play!”

Come out to play in this fun quilting workshop.  It may be Lorna’s last one before she retires!

Free-form curves can provide an organic background for a substantial quilt, a quirky accent in an otherwise geometric quilt, or a beautiful focal point in a larger design. In this workshop participants will first learn methods for achieving technically successful free-form curved piecing, and then move on to design considerations for adding interest and creating a personalized aesthetic in their work.

The workshop is organized in order to allow participants time for both formal instruction and the unstructured play which is necessary to learn about our personal preferences in design and technique. We will learn from our own work, and from the work of other participants.

Class is open to the public.  Members $65, non-members $75. Please register here to participate.

Registration closes Feb 7, 2020.
