I'll soon be on my way to visit the Coastal Quilters Guild Santa Barbara & Goleta to present my lecture: Quilt Toppings: Fun & Fanciful Embellishment
This lecture taps into the strong emerging trend toward embellishment of quilt surfaces. Paint, foil, paint sticks, thread, crayons, buttons, ribbons and beads are all readily available, fun, easy and non-messy ways to add that final design element to traditional and non-traditional quilts.
The workshop on Friday will be Simple Surfaces
Learn all about paint sticks and foiling on fabric. Applying foil or paint sticks to silk or cotton is easy, fun and permanent. This informative hands-on workshop is for both traditional and non-traditional quilt and clothing makers.
The Guild meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at St Andrew's Presbyterian Church, 4575 Auhay, in Goleta.
The meetings start at 7:00 p.m., although many people like to come early and socialize. We have a business meeting covering pertinent topics, show and tell, block of the month, door prize drawings, and a program or guest speaker.
