Twice a year the Carson Valley Quilt Guild hosts a nationally known quilt educator for a weekend workshop and a lecture at the following Monday night meeting. Class fees are quite reasonable for both members and non-members of the guild. It’s a unique opportunity to learn new quilting techniques from experts, enhance skills, and share the love of quilting and creating. The workshops and lectures are open to guild members and the public when space is available. We’d love for you to join us!
March 26 and 27, 2022 - Jenny Lyons shared her expertise with us about free motion quilting. Saturday - Fearless Free Motion and Sunday - Fearless Trapunto.
September 2022 - Katie Pasquini Masopust will be teaching the following 2-day class on Saturday, September 24 and 25, 2022 at Western Nevada College:
From Watercolor to Quilt
Abstract watercolor paintings will be created the first day using 10 different painting techniques that will leave the student with several paintings to work from. Techniques include, transparent layered shapes, tape resists, rubber cement drawing resist, washes, glazing, dropping in of colors, surface treatments using soap bubbles, rubbing alcohol and grids, etc. One painting will be chosen and cropped to find the most dynamic part. This will be drawn to make templates, then enlarged, and translated with fabrics into a quilt using either my turned edge technique or the students preferred technique. When the quilt is done it will look like a watercolor painting. No painting experience is needed.
Class fees (for the 2-day class): Members - $80.00, Non-members - $90.00
