Susan Cleveland will visit Helping Hands in September!
We are fortunate to host a nationally recognized quilter, Susan Cleveland. On Tuesday, October 26, Susan will have a workshop at our meeting place, Wyoming Methodist Church that is based on her teaching and books. “Precision and Penache” an inspiring 3-hour demonstration will be $20 for members and $30 for non-members (which will include admission to the evening program for non-members). (All Helping Hands members are welcome at the evening program.) Precision & Panache Via live (and lively) projected demos, learn to add eye-catching details to quilts and increase accuracy -– precision piecing, decorative threads (for quilting and applique), piping in seams, fancy prairie points, embellishing, skinny borders, and helpful tools. Lots of quilts will be displayed showcasing these fantastic techniques. Supply list: paper and pen (handouts provided)
“Disappearing Dresdens” will be Susan’s Wednesday, October 27 workshop from 9-3 at Wyoming Methodist. The fee will be $40 and the first 20 to sign up will be included. To enroll, you need to contact Mary Dawn Ditty by email firstname.lastname@example.org and send your payment made out to Helping Hands Quilt Guild.
Double-points put a contemporary spin on this long-time favorite and they eliminate the need of a traditional appliqued circle in the center! Using quarter circles, half circles, and three-quarter circles adds another interesting bit of character. Learn Susan's tips for turning wedge points with the Prairie Pointer Tool and use tricky piecing to assemble the arcs, circle and background. Points are three dimensional and design possibilities are endless! Finished quilt is 27"x 24".
It will be fun, enlightening, uplifting. Let’s make this a wonderful time. Hope to see our whole group……Back together again!!!! Learn more about Susan from her web site Pieces be With You.
