Join CPQG at a full day workshop with Joyce Hughes at the State College Alliance Church, located at 1221 W. Whitehall Road in State College. See more about Joyce at her website here.
The workshop is called “Techniques, Techniques and More Techniques.” From her website, “Eight techniques will be covered and applied to a beautiful panel of a butterfly on milkweed. You will learn step by step basic instructions for:
1) Free Motion Quilting
2) Dimensional Thread Painting
4) Application of Multiple Overlays
5) Various 3D Layering
6) Bobbin Work
7) Blocking and Squaring a Quilt
8) Applying Crystals
You will see the effects of various techniques and supplies, and how they can create added interest of texture and dimension to a piece of Art!”
Everyone in the workshop will be working on the same panel.
The workshop will begin at 9:30, ending at 4:00, with a 30-minute lunch break. Set up is available at 9:00. Our room is close to the parking lot and has great natural light.
A supply list will be provided after your registration and payment is received. In addition to a basic sewing kit, you will need a sewing machine that is able to do free motion quilting and work with a zig-zag stitch.
The cost of the workshop is $60 for non-members. The workshop fee includes the cost of the required panel. An optional thread kit that will have all of the threads for the top and bobbins for $40 is available for purchase.
Registration is limited to 20 participants. Please send your check made to Centre Pieces Quilt Guild to:
