CLASSES, TRIPS, RETREAT
January 7, 2020: Marisa Simon
Class: English Paper Piecing
Marisa Simon started quilting when she was pregnant and was instantly hooked. Her interest in English Paper Piecing took root over 10 years ago but it wasn’t until she started an EPP club at Pennington Quilt Works in Pennington NJ that her interest grew into true love. Over the last 4 years she has introduced dozens of quilters to this portable and “slow sewing” technique. During her workshop, she will share with you her creative journey as well as her favorite tips and tricks to make a lovely project by hand. She will teach you how to fussy-cut so that you can create stunning English Paper Pieced Lucy Boston and Brimfield Blocks.
Cost: $40 for OWQG Members, $45 for non-members
March 3, 2020 Rhonda Adams “My Funky Flock”
Wonky birds, liberated loons or feathered friends, call them what you may, but these little guys are sure to make you smile. These fellas are made using liberated, free-style or improvisational piecing. The key is to trust your eye as there is no right or wrong or perfect size for your finished blocks. My only request is that you use your imagination and based on some simple guidelines, create your own “Funky Flock”.
The class is $40.00 for OWQG members and $45.00 for non-members you can sign up at our Monday meetings or contact Jean Temme.
Class is held at Conley’s church on March 3, 2020 and will start at 9:00 but be there at 8:30 to set up.
Please bring your lunch and a small light if you wish.
