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!
April - Fabric artist Jane Haworth was the National Teacher in April. Students have been participating in her online class "Love Of Pets" since the beginning of the year, and the finished fabric collages of their own pets were revealed when Jane appeared at our May meeting.
September - April Sproule is a textile artist who enjoys experimenting with several mediums including painting, printing, machine stitching, and contemporary hand embroidery. She is inspired by the diversity found in nature: flora, fauna, and microscopic imagery. She is grateful for the opportunity to share what she loves with others through her teaching. The registration form for both classes is in the downloadable pdf below. You may send a printout of the form and a check for the class to the guild - P.O. Box 2541, Minden, NV 89423 Attn: Terrie Peets or directly to Terrie at her address in the membership roster. The supply list for the fabric painting class is also included here.
