Lee Monroe is a local quilter, designer and teacher who travels the country doing workshops and presentations. She will be giving a program at our guild meeting Monday evening, April 9, called “Tools of the Trade.” It will be packed full of tricks and tools to make stitching faster, easier and more organized. The following Saturday, April 14, she will lead us in a workshop on “Understanding the Rainbow” –the basics of color theory and tools to help us pick fabrics. By the end of the workshop you will understand the color wheel and create one for yourself as a colorful wall hanging.
Problem fabric—the one you always want to use, but it never seems to work.
Rainbow of scraps, fat quarters—at least 4” x 10”; bring lots of options.
