2013 Workshop Schedule
Topics in Art Quilting Techniques will continue into the New Year. For those who missed them the first time around we are repeating key topics such as Painting on Fabric, Putting on the Glitz and so on.
For those of you who are eager to delve further into Art Quilting Techniques we will be scheduling additional classes such as Using Alternative Materials in Your Art Quilts, Orphan Blocks as an Inspiration for Art Quilting and more!
I CAN tell you that the first scheduled workshop of 2013 will be Tuesday January 15 from 6 PM until 9 PM. It will be Painting on Fabric. You will learn how to select and prepare your fabric; how to select appropriate paint for your project and how to apply the paint. You will learn techniques for stenciling and stamping with paint as well as how to apply paint with a brush to achieve the effect you are looking for.
Make sure you wear clothes that won’t suffer if they receive some paint splashes or bring a coverup. It’s going to be a fun and creative evening.
I expect to have the rest of the dates for the first quarter firmed up later this week so keep your eye on this space.
And enjoy your Thanksgiving Day with lots of good food and surrounded by family and friends!

I first learned how to sew as a child on my mom’s old treadle Singer (and wish that I knew where that machine is now!) and am now in love with my Berninas.
While going to school, raising a family and enjoying two satisfying careers I continued developing my skills with all kinds of needlecrafts and eventually discovered the magic of quilting.
Soon I began to stretch my imagination and creativity. This led to an interest in art quilting and I've been busy soaking up all kinds of techniques and adapting them to my creations. Now, I find myself on a journey to uncover, develop and to express the inner artist that I have so joyfully let loose.
I have learned so many ways to create beauty in fiber and am eager to share this knowledge. I am in love with color - saturated vibrant color.
I have also learned that there truly are no "quilt police" when it comes to one's personal expression of creativity; no right or wrong way. It just has to feel right and look right to you.
it is all a voyage of discovery. I just can’t imagine doing anything else.”
Several of my quilts, both traditional and art quilts have been displayed at Quilting in the Valley in Northridge, California, Lefferts Historic House and the Audubon Society in New York City.
My work "Going Around in All the Best Circles" was juried into the Pacific International Quilt Show.
I have shown in both local Fine Art Galleries and in Quilt Shows across the United States.
I am the author of the blog: The Mystical Allure of All Things Fiber since 2007.
In recent years I have uncovered a passion for writing - especially poetry - as well and have a lot of it on http://minervaspirit.com
