On Sunday, August 16th, my sister Ruth and I went up to the United Maine Craftsmen show in Cumberland, Maine. The main reason I went was to see Leslie Muir-Volpe and her work. I want to tell you I was very impressed. Her piecing is meticulous. I can see why Bev Valle wanted me to have her on the workshop schedule.
Leslie is scheduled to be at our September meeting. The topic “We’re Talking Small” will be very educational and awe inspiring. I know I am interested in perusing miniature quilts but have not as yet.
The workshop is scheduled for September 19th at the Plaistow Library. I for one am excited to take this class. Not only do I want to make miniature quilts, I believe that the techniques taught in this class will help me to become a better piercer in larger endeavors. Don’t think you are not advanced enough to take the class. Whether you are a beginner quilter or not, you can learn how to be a better quilter. I love taking classes to polish up my skills.
In the workshop, we will work on two different tops. Leslie will start us off working on a four patch in a nine patch setting. Once we have completed that we will move on to make a friendship star. Leslie feels we should be able to finish the two tops in the class with the quilting and binding to be done on our own.
You can sign up at the meeting or use the Workshop Signup Form to send it in. At the moment there is space in the workshop. But I can not promise you it will stay that way. So sign up soon if you want to take the workshop.
I hope to see you at the workshop.
