On Saturday, June 4th, MPS is hosting a workshop and Ann Shaw is the instructor. She spoke at one of our MPS meetings in 2015, and we were greatly inspired by her work. She makes beautiful art quilts using a piecing method based on what she learned from Ruth McDowell; and with Ruth’s blessing, she is teaching others. We are excited to have her teach at one of our workshops.
Ann will bring five “Flowers of the Gorge” patterns, and each participant gets to pick one for their class project. Just reading her supply list got my creative juices flowing!
Because we wanted to make this class available to more students, our Program Chair scouted around the city and found a larger classroom than the one we usually use. Quilting Delights in Clackamas has graciously allowed us to use their spacious classroom space. Now we can register up to 20 students!
All the information you need for the workshop can be found on our Workshops page. You’ll also find a link to Ann’s website there where you can browse through her gallery of lovely pieced art quilts.
Wouldn’t it be fun to create a “Flower of the Gorge” at around the same time they are actually blooming in the Columbia Gorge?
