LEARNING ON THE GO—MEMBERS TEACHING MEMBERS
Our guild is full of talented and clever people. Come learn from them!
Robin Schofield—Free Motion Thread Painting Create animal faces or other images using free motion techniques. You need thread, a sewing machine and your imagination. I have some examples of my animal faces (cat and rooster) at the Simsbury Library. The show runs until the end of January. The exhibit is across from the reference desk.
Jean Williams—Lazy Pineapple block Great use for that fabric we bought with great plans and is now stuffed away in a box! Shortcut for square-in-a-square, this technique loses the points and creates a design similar to the pineapple block without all the fancy rulers and fuss!
Margaret Omartian—Lip Balm Case With the cold weather we have ahead of us, we will be constantly looking for our lip balm to prevent chapped lips. To prevent losing it in the bottom of your purse or pocket, having a bright fabric case will help you locate it much easier. It will take no more than 15 minutes to complete the case using only small scraps from your stash. Great for gift giving or keeping for yourself.
Lynn Veith—Creating Shadows on Fabric Did you know you can use everyday items and some household cleaning fluids to make shadows on fabric? They make these objects appear to be floating on the fabric. The process is simple and the results are always surprising and best of all you do not need any special supplies.
