We all have that great yard of fabric that we purchased, made, traded or were given.  But using it up is sometimes the most difficult thing to do!  Sometimes that fabric just does not “play” well with others.  Pat will show you how to “cut up the pretties” to use that special fabric to its best advantage.  So, gather those great and unique fabrics, in combination with other handmade or commercial fabrics, and explore design and colour in some careful exercises that will give you a road map for creating with one of a kind pieces.  Pat will show various design solutions while you learn a new language in design elements.  This class will teach you to embrace and USE the special fabric we love (but are afraid to use) and we will overcome our fear of ‘Cutting Up the Pretties.”  This is a hands on sewing class where we will start a notebook of ideas as well as begin an art quilt using our great fabric.

Evening Lecture:  WALK ON THE WILD SIDE:  Finding Your Style in Contemporary Quiltmaking

 
Friday, October 10, 2014       7 – 8 pm          $10
George Preston Rec Centre,
20699 – 42 Ave, Langley, BC
Sponsored by SAQA BC
This evening lecture is Pat Pauly’s irreverent look at her own work and career, with its lucky beginnings and twists and turns.  After having diverged several times to accept positions in other aspects of the design profession, she cane back to full time contemporary quilting, where she had started in the early 1980’s.  All is far game for inspiration and comment as Pat presents more than 400 images in the space of an hour; you will never think of the word “quilt” in the same way, again.
Interested?  Registration for the workshop is limited to 20 participants, evening event – 100.
