Event Location:

Here is an opportunity to learn a couple of intermediate quilting skills!
The first class will involve learning to “fussy cut” a design from your focus fabric.  Then you will lay out the design with the input of the instructor and other class members.
The second class will teach the Japanese Art of embroidery called Sashiko.    What is Sashiko?  It is a Japanese folk art that had its origins in the Edo period Japan, and has evolved over centuries from a frugal necessity into the decorative art so cherished today.  Most Sashiko embroidery designs are simple line representations of one or more of three categories:  the natural world (plants, animals, the elements), ideas (hope, health, prosperity, fortune, longevity), and the celestial world (blessings).  Sashiko exemplifies the Japanese principal of wabisabi, which has no direct English translation but expresses a sense of beauty in the incomplete and imperfect.  It honors the strength to be found in fineness and delicacy of the work: a patched and repaired garment is a source of reflection, even reverence.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                There will be 2 class meetings for this quilt.  The first to go over fussy cutting and to design the lay out for the quilt top. Second class will teach sashiko (Japanese embroidery).  The instructor will provide the needles and embroidery thread for this segment of the class!
