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 (Only 6 spaces left)
