2022 August Sew In Workshop
Saturday, August 13 – 10am to 4pm
Sew In and Accuquilt Event
Join us for a day of sewing fun. Bring your machine and sew with your fellow guild members or just bring your fabric and cut out your next quilt blocks using one of several AccuQuilt die cutters. Have you ever wanted to try making a Dresden or Drunkards Path quilt? How about cutting perfect circles, hexagons or triangles in sizes from 1 to 8 inches. Make your own rick rack or cut out several shopping totes at one go. Sara Roche will be bringing her many dies and professional die cutter, which cuts up to ten layers of fabric at a time, in addition to the guild’s AccuQuilt Go machine. Bring your own fabric and learn trick and tips. For more information on the available dies, contact Sara using her email address, which you can find in the PVQA roster. To see what the AccuQuilt machine can do go to Accuquilt.com .
Meeting will be at Santa Cruz Community Church on Roxas Street.
Jane’s Textile Treasure Garden
Monday, August 8 – 7pm
This is a glimpse into the inspirations and process of designing fabric. From dreaming to drawing, coloring and cutting. This is a colorful journey through the creative process. I will also show many quilts and accessories made with my FreeSpirit fabrics. Everyone will enjoy seeing how to use these contemporary prints to make dramatic quilts.
After a varied career in the design world, Jane began to quilt in 1980. She found that these “soft paintings” satisfied the draftsman, the craftsman and the artist in her. Consequently, she is now a dedicated (some say “obsessed”) quilt artist and fabric designer.
Her art quilts have been shown in many national and international exhibits, including Quilt National 1989 through 2005 and Contemporary American Quilts, the first major exhibit of American art quilts in England. Her quilt “Willow” was named as One of the One Hundred Best American Quilts of the Century. Jane is also the author of “The Quilted Garden”. The book includes twenty years of her work and exercises for making nature-inspired quilts.
Jane’s love for historic decorative arts can be seen in all facets of her work, but it is especially evident in the exuberant fabric she is currently designing for FreeSpirit. Her designs are oversized and colorful and have been coined as “William Morris on anti-depressants”. They are created for quilts, wearables and home decorating. Her latest book, Patchwork Sassaman Style, beautifully illustrates her fabric “in action”.
Meeting will be held on Zoom.
