Via live (and lively) projected demos, learn to add eye-catching details to quilts and increase accuracy -– precision piecing, decorative threads (for quilting and applique), piping in seams, fancy prairie points, embellishing, skinny borders, and helpful tools. Lots of quilts will be displayed showcasing these fantastic techniques. (3 hours, lecture/demo)

Fee: $50 per lecture. Lunch will be included for those attending both Wednesday lectures.

 

“Simple Quilting with Style: Alternatives to Free-Motion Quilting”
Wednesday, April 17, 2019
2 – 5pm

With lively projected demos you’ll learn to prepare a quilt top for a successful finish; discover secrets of ditch quilting; learn when and how to mark or not mark a quilt; study stitching with heavy threads; get excited about big stitch hand quilting, bobbin quilting and couched quilting. These skills empower those whose free-motion skills are less than stellar but may be combined with free-motion quilting as well. Quilt your quilts with style and techniques you enjoy the most! (3 hours, lecture/demo)

Supply list: paper and pen (handouts provided)

Fee: $50 per lecture. Lunch will be included for those attending both Wednesday lectures.

 

“Susan Cleveland Meet & Greet”

“Quilt Bindings: Simple to Spectacular”
Thursday, April 18, 2019
10 – 1pm

With lively projected demos every detail of a quality finish will be covered including some revolutionary ideas! I’ll cover preparing and squaring the quilt, making nice miters, joining tails (my special technique), and finishing for a show-quality back. Options such as an all-machine finish and odd angled corners will be shown as well. Things will then get wild with my Piping Hot Binding technique and lots of variations such as double-piping; embellished piping; invisible binding with piping; and, drum roll, please, my brand new calligraphic binding from my 2016 show quilt. Give your quilts the fabulous finishes they deserve! (3 hours, lecture/demo)

Supply list: paper and pen (handouts provided)

Fee: $50 per lecture
