April Speaker:  Jane Sassaman -- April 13, 2017

http://www.janesassaman.com  

Jane's art quilts have been shown in many national and international exhibits, including Quilt National 1989 through 2005 and Contemporary American Quilts, the first major exhibit of American art quilts in England. Her quilt “Willow” was named as One of the One Hundred Best American Quilts of the Century. Jane is also the author of “The Quilted Garden”. The book includes twenty years of her work and exercises for making nature-inspired quilts.  

Jane’s love for historic decorative arts can be seen in all facets of her work, but it is especially evident in the exuberant fabric she is currently designing for FreeSpirit. Her designs are oversized and colorful and have been coined as “William Morris on anti-depressants”. They are created for quilts, wearables and home.



Registration is still OPEN for the April workshops with Jane Sassaman.  View the details of the workshops on the Workshops page and use this form to sign up NOW before the classes fill.
