Cindy Needham Class: Thread Ed

Cindy has worked with Superior Threads for years and knows everything there is to know about working with all kinds of threads. Thread Ed will be a lecture she has put together especially for our guild to teach us as much as possible about how to use any and all threads in our sewing machines. She will cover the "Fabulous Four" troubleshooting tips and pass out threads so you will have samples to refer to. Cindy will also have samples with her for demonstration. Prepare to become an expert!

Supply List: a FIRM notepad for taking notes and some scotch tape to corral those thread samples. And a pen or pencil!!!

There are still a few spots open for this class.  Please contact Jackie Rosier if you are interested.  Cost is $25.00.




February Meeting:

February 17, 2018 - Guild Meeting
Valley Christian Church, Hood River, OR

Enter The alluring World of Japanese Yukata Quilts
Speaker: Patricia Belyea of Okan Arts (okanarts.com)

Join Patricia as she tells stories about visiting Japan for International Great Quilt Show
and meeting Amy Katoh of Blue & White in Tokya, plus other textile treats.

As a passionate importer of vintage Japanese yukata cottons, Patricia explains the
elaborate process of hand-dyeing the high-quality cottons and describes yukatatas'
role in Japanese society. She shows samples of the different patterns and repeat styles.
From classic indigo and white to vivid color combinations, Patricia presents a wild range
of the wonderful fabrics.

Patricia displays her quilts made with yukata cottons and talks about how those fabrics
inspired each quilt composition.

The meeting also includes a mini trunk show of vintage yukata cottons--vibrant, hand-dyed
fabrics that Patricia imports from Japan.

Afternoon workshop: The Art of Facings
Try out a new style of binding with the End Cap Facing. This modern way of finishing a
quilt, with no binding showing on the front, is fast, easy and open to all sorts of design details. Once you learn to face a quilt, you might never go back to double-fold French
bindings. Cost: $35.00
