The goal of improvisational patchwork is flexible patterning. Participants will start with a favorite fixed or “traditional” block pattern and gradually transform it through a series of repetitions and variations. Without the use of rulers, templates or instructions to guide them, they will gain a deeper sense of how patterns evolve, while learning ruler-free patchwork and composition techniques along the way.
This workshop will be held at 2470 Huntley (Grace Baptist Church), just across the road from the store. Participants will need to bring their own machines although arrangements can be made to rent a machine from us for the day (limited number available so please reserve). Snacks and lunch are included in the fee.
Instructor — Sherri Lynn Wood; read more about Sherri Lynn and her teaching philosophy here.
Date — Friday April 28, 9:00 - 4:00 pm (1 hour break for lunch; catered lunch is provided with the workshop)
Supply list will be provided at time of registration
