Workshops

One of the mandates of the Victoria Quilters Guild is education about quilting.  To this end the Workshop Committee schedules Workshops with locally, nationally, and internationally  recognized quilting teachers.

Policy For Workshop Attendance In order to encourage the sharing of teachers and resources among interested local guilds we have instituted the following policy regarding attendance at workshops.

Workshops will be offered first to VQG members.

One month prior to the workshop date, attendance will be opened to members of other fiber and fabric guilds (West Shore, MQG, Embroiderers Guild, Up Island Guilds for example) at the same price (assuming there are still available seats).

Non guild members will also be allowed to sign up one month before the date, (assuming there are still seats available). They will be charged a 10% surcharge.

Please contact us with questions, comments, and suggestions for workshop topics or teachers. workshops@victoriaquiltersguild.org

September 9-10 Gloria Loughman

Landscape Collage

Time:  9am – 4pm Cost: TBD

The focus of this workshop is to create a landscape where the play of light and colour across the surface adds movement and perspective. We will start by drawing out our design then selecting our colour scheme and fabrics. We will extend our range by over painting and sponging some commercial fabrics that have interesting prints or textures. The collage process will then be demonstrated, and participants will work on their backgrounds. The tiles are quilted in place before the foreground details are added. Lots of tips along the way and information about doing a faced edge is included.

Participants can use one of Gloria’s patterns or work on their own designs.

Time 1 -4:30 Location in the gym.  Cost: TBA

 

This half-day (3 .5 hour) workshop typically follows on the Aurifilosophy presentation so students may put into practice the technical information shared in the lecture. Students will make a Quilt-as-you-go zipper pouch along with Krista as they learn about managing machine tension, proper needle selection, stitch length, free motion or walking foot stitching strategies, hand appliqué, appropriate thread for decorative stitches and a lot more! The pouch is designed to show off stitch patterns in multiple weights of Aurifil thread.

September 19 – Krista Hennebury  Scrappy Flower Table Runner
