Sally is coming to Portland during April, 2015. She will give a presentation to the Northwest Quilters Guild followed by two days of workshops hosted by NWQ. She will then close out her Portland visit by leading a No-Sew lecture and demonstration which will be hosted by us, the Metropolitan Patchwork Society.
The two guilds have joined forces to bring Sally to town and all activities are open to members of both guilds. The members of both NWQ and MPS will also enjoy each guild’s own “membership” pricing for everything. What could be better?!!
On Monday, April 13th, at 7:00 PM, Sally will talk about “Borders, Bindings, and Edges” during the regular Northwest Quilters meeting. Through the use of slides and quilts, she will show how to bring your quilts to, as she puts it, a “beautiful conclusion”.
The meeting will be followed on Tuesday, April 14th, with a workshop titled “My Stars” from 9 AM to 4 PM. Students will learn to make double half-square triangles to create two different sizes of blocks.
Then on Wednesday, April 15th, Northwest Quilters will host another workshop led by Sally called “Pieced Baskets”. This will also be held from 9 AM to 4 PM and will feature precision sewing, quality workmanship, and multiple techniques to make half-square triangles in the creation of two sizes of basket blocks.
The guild meeting and both workshops will be held at Immanuel Lutheran Church located at 7810 SE 15th Ave, in Portland, OR.
Lecture is based on
Sally Collins’ book.
On Thursday, April 16th, MPS will host a No-Sew lecture led by Sally and called “Achieving Quality Workmanship”. She will demonstrate a variety of techniques in quilt-making and explain her approach to color and fabric choices. Since this is a lecture, you will only need to bring paper and pen for note taking. The workshop will be held from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM at Hudson Plaza located at 12950 SW Pacific Hwy, Tigard, OR.
These workshops will fill up quickly, so don’t procrastinate in signing up or you may miss an opportunity to hear and work with a great national speaker. Follow the links below to get registered.
