Crazy Quilting Class: Part 1-10 am to 3 pm
September 19 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$60.00
Combine storytelling and stitching basics with the traditional art of Crazy Quilting. Long used to preserve heirlooms, and capture the stories of a family history; quilters may create a variety of finished pieces using this technique.
Base layer construction techniques, as well as a wide range of embellishment options will be included. Methods for embroidery, wool and fabric appliqués, and the use of buttons, lace, and memorabilia are just a few of the many finishing options. Folded fabric designs, completed needlework, and other completed handwork may be added. The possibilities are endless.
Participants are asked to bring a wide range of embellishment pieces: buttons, lace, beads, needlework pieces, clothing or fabric, jewelry, significant family treasures, photos transferred to fabric, or any other found objects of interest to you. Almost anything will work.
Sewing machines are optional. All construction may be completed by hand. A sewing machine may be used to construct the base layers, and will speed up that process. Embellishments are largely added by hand, but may also include decorative machine stitching.
