"Hawaiian Quilts"
Speaker: Nancy Lee Chong


Nancy learned to make Hawaiian Quilts from Margaret Luika Kamaka in Kailua, Oahu, Hawaii, between 1978 and 1981. Calling on her decree in Education, she began teaching Hawaiian quiltmaking in 1982. In 1988, she made her first pieced quilt, and has been making both traditional and art quilts since. Hawaiian quilting and applique quilts are her specialty. Now living in Seattle, Nancy is known world wide for her skills and quilts.

 

Workshop - Celtic Knot
1-4 pm (following the meeting)

Nancy's specialty is stress-free needle turn applique. She puts students directly in touch with their needle, thread, and fabric. No freezer paper, toothpicks, starch, cardboard, plastic, back-basting, ironing, or interfacing -- all things that needlessly complicate what is otherwise a very simple process.

The Celtic Knot Workshop will give you all the skills you need for successful applique.

Cost: #35. plus a $10. kit fee.
