June Program -
Cindy Needham - Designing Wholecloth Quilts using Antique Linens
Thursday, June 6, 2013
Cindy Needham, aka the Linen Lady, will present a program demonstrating her technique of designing heirloom wholecloth quilts using antique linens. Cindy is an international quilting instructor and travels the globe teaching. She is the author of Wholecloth Linen Quilts, published by AQS.
Cindy will also be teaching two workshops:
Friday, June 7, 2013 OPEN THREAD BAR This is a great class for all levels of quilters...even the beginner! Students are taught the tricks of using all different types of threads in their machine, how to change tension, needles, thread delivery, bobbin work and so much more. 10 cases of thread are at the students’ disposal while they spend the day making a reference panel and learn to audition threads doing thread play on provided floral panels.
Saturday, June 8, 2013 HEIRLOOM FEATHERS & BACKGROUNDS This new workshop was created to share Cindy's world of heirloom feathers and backgrounds. She loves to quilt feathers and enjoys making them her own with special details and she shows a variety of easy ways to accomplish this. She will also be teaching “The Basic Three” designs and how to use these to create some beautiful background designs. She provides an 18” Dupioni silk quilt sandwich and you have access to a nice collection of Superior Threads for your quilting.
