We had a great start of the new 2022 year on Saturday, 01/08/2022 meeting. We are back to the Lakeport Senior Center which seems cozier and nicer with the full kitchen accommodation. This month , we had a wonderful and inspiring speaker Sandra L. Mollon. She is a textile artist, instructor, author, and designer. Her lecture was “Adapting an Image for an Art Quilt” . The presentation was part trunk show and part power point lecture showing how to choose photos to work from, posterization of images, and finally the nuts and bolts of assembly and quilting. Below are some of her works.
The skill day with Sandra was on Sunday, January 9, 2022 on the subject “Thread Painting”. Participants were given a choice of images printed on fabric, and using free motion thread play, the image is covered in stitches to make a wonderful thread painted art project suitable for framing or other sewing projects. The class was amazing with great techniques. We had fun and everyone learned a lot.
