Our program and workshop:
​Fiber Artist Karen Stockwell will present ROUND ROBINS, a lecture to get our guild EXCITED! Share your skills, your ideas, creativity and part of yourselves with other quilting friends. A Round Robin is an exciting way to challenge yourself to reach beyond the way you've always done things to find your creative muse. It’s a wonderful learning experience, stretching the way you work and exploring new techniques and design paths. This lecture and trunk show will explain the process: What is a Round Robin? How can you set up a group? How do you eliminate Creative Stage Fright? What are some Absolute Rules? What are some "Let's decide together" rules? What are some NO-NOs? This is a chance to spread your creative wings and soar!

{There will be a $5 visitor fee for non-members. Please check out Karen's website at www.karenstockwell.com.}

WORKSHOP:
June 15, 2018 --- Karen Stockwell - Cost for PQG members is $45

DECONSTRUCTED WEDDING RINGS - A Double Wedding Ring is surprisingly versatile. What happens if you make the rings different sizes, and don't join them? How about adding some other elements? Let's play with modernizing an old favorite. Have fun and see what happens! And with a white or solid background, it can easily be a modern quilt. 36" x 39" Pattern required for class $10 (this will be included in our class fee) Contains full sized templates and directions for 3 different finishing techniques. Good for all skill levels.  

* All quilters are encouraged to join this class. Please contact Mary Jo for more information or to sign up! Go to our "Contact Us" page and click on the link for Programs/Workshops to send Mary Jo an email.
