                     November 14th - Joyce Hughes


Joyce is an Award-Winning self-taught fiber artist quilter. Her first quilt was a tee-shirt quilt, which she enjoyed making, but felt limited in the ability to express her artistic capabilities. Within several months, she began to design pictorial landscape quilts using raw edge applique, thread painting, and a variety of embellishments. Never knowing the “rules” she broke a lot of them, but with exciting results! She will be discussing her journey in quilting.

November 15th Workshop with Joyce Hughes

Dimensional Thread Painting

Come one! Come all! The November 15th workshop still has a few spaces remaining. You don’t want to miss this very cool technique. Dimensional thread painting is not as difficult as you may believe.

We will use our domestic sewing machines to create breathtaking fabric panels and quilts using raw-edge appliqué, thread painting and other various embellishment techniques.  During the class Joyce will walk you through the process of creating a one-of-a-kind piece of art using your domestic sewing machine!  Come join us as we create wonderful art on a beautiful Butterfly with a Daisy panel.  Here is the Supply list for this workshop.

  Reach out to Barbara Pepper or Cathy Labrie to take this exciting workshop!!
