    July will bring Audrey Esarey of Cotton and Bourbon, from her studio in (where else?) Kentucky. Audrey’s lecture is called Finding My Voice in Modern Quilting.

    This lecture focuses on her path to becoming a modern quilter and how she has applied many traditional techniques in modern quilts.  She will discuss the progression of her work and show her Radial Quilts, Watercolor Quilts, and a few others too!

    She'll share information on design inspiration, favorite artists, and discuss some quilting highs and lows along her journey. Audrey is very open to questions and sharing her knowledge and passion with us. 

    You can view Audrey’s quilt gallery at www.cottonandbourbon.com

    Audrey’s workshop, Watercolor Quilt, will be held on Saturday, July 30th, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. (This is a departure from our usual class schedule, but we were eager to be able to accommodate Audrey’s timetable.)

    Audrey is a quilter from Kentucky who started making quilts in 2005, after a lifetime of sewing. Her business is called Cotton and Bourbon, as a nod to two favorite evening activities. You can see more of her work here:  https://www.cottonandbourbon.com/homepage

    The Watercolor Quilt is a wall hanging made from one large block that uses curved piecing to create the illusion of transparency from overlapping circles. The class will cover Audrey's process for building a fabric gradation and tips and tricks for stress-free curved piecing. Take the guesswork out of color selection by using one of the published color gradations inside the pattern! The Watercolor Quilt finishes at 32 x 32 inches. 

    We have members who have taken this workshop and recommended it to us! 


    • Workshop, Saturday, July 30, 9:00-3:00
    • Class fee: $50 members, $70 non-members (includes the lecture)
    • Pattern $12, to be downloaded and printed
    • Questions can be directed to Sandra Woodard, woodard_sandra@gmail.com

    We are so lucky to have Margarita Korioth giving a workshop for us! Her innovative work has won many awards, been seen in many publications, and she has taught and lectured all over the world. She has expanded the world of quilting with paper and other mixed materials. 

    On Tuesday August 23rd from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. she will teach her workshop Hand Appliqué with Paper and Fabric. Margarita’s a lovely, encouraging teacher and we know you’ll be charmed by her unique approach to creating this small piece that may lead to bigger endeavors!

    Give new life to magazine clippings and combine them with fabric to make beautiful and unique fiber art. First, we will design your block using paper and hand-dyed fabrics. Then you will cut, fuse, and hand-stitch the pieces in place. This is a great opportunity to learn how to stitch on paper. There will be also a demonstration on how to laminate and foil the magazine clippings. This class is open to all sewing levels, and anyone who would like to explore techniques with different materials beyond fabrics.

    The cost of the workshop is $35.00 with an additional kit fee of $20.00. Be sure to sign up early as spots will go quickly!

    • Fee $35, kit fee $20.00 for members (Fee $55 for non-members and $20.00 kit fee)
