WORKSHOPS

  • Fabric Postcards - This has been Carol's most popular workshop for several years. These colorful little pieces are fun to create, they're quick, and they make great gifts. Plus, they're a standard size, so they can be easily and inexpensively framed! Carol has three different postcard collections from which to choose (pattern purchase is required for the workshop). And, as a bonus, if you give Carol enough advance notice, she will design a couple of original postcards just for your group! Class duration is typically five to six hours.

  • Free-Motion Thread Painting on a Photograph - Carol uses a variety of free-motion stitching techniques to enhance the colors and provide texture to her photo. She provides a photo that has been professionally printed on fabric (nominal fee). This workshop is a perfect way to gain confidence with free-motion techniques! The resulting "embroidered" piece is lovely enough to frame! Class duration is typically four hours.

  • Painting on Fabric with Ink - Carol will provide a selection of line drawings (such as a bee or a butterfly) and show you how to paint it with inks. She'll show you techniques that will simplify the process and make it easy to create a beautiful painted piece. You can use it by itself, or as a part of a larger painting, or cut it out and fuse to another piece of fabric. Class duration is typically four hours. There will be a small supply fee if the workshop is conducted in person because Carol will bring inks and fabric.

  • The Big Picture - In this two-day workshop, Carol will teach you how to transform your original photo or drawing into a fusible applique pictorial quilt. Carol has taught this technique for many years, and you might have seen some of her quilts that utilize this method. The subject matter is unlimited--butterflies, flowers, dogs, cats, cars, airplanes--these are just a few of the subjects that her students have captured in their one-of-a-kind quilts! Pictured below are some of Carol's pictorial quilts. This workshop is two days, typically six hours per day.
