Farmington Valley Quilters is going virtual!
It's time to reconnect with our fellow quilters!
After a difficult year of virtual lectures, things are looking up for the fall. As of now, we expect to hold in-person meetings and workshops beginning in September. Hurray! We've got the following lineup this fall...
September Jan Doyle will present "Quilts and the Underground Railroad: Fact or Fiction?" This unique and attention-grabbing lecture will provide stories of secret codes, hidden messages, and forbidden talk. It will be up to each of us to evaluate the evidence Jan provides and draw our own conclusions.
October Nancy Sullivan and Lynn Thibault will present "The Quilt Clinic." This lecture will provide a clinical approach to reviving our UFO's (unfinished fabric objects). Nancy and Lynn will help us find a way to finish a quilt that we may have thought had insurmountable issues. Their trunk show will feature some of their success stories and why they took on the challenge.
November The artist Jane Davila will present "Elements of Design." Jane will follow up her lecture the next day with a workshop titled "Surface Design Sampler." In this workshop, you will play with a large variety of material and supplies on fabric - paintstiks, inks, paints, mediums, metallic foil, inktense pencils, water-soluble pastels and more.
Let the creativity begin!
