instructor imageHere’s a great opportunity for you to gather with others in a stimulating environment to work on what you love—your art!

New and returning students wishing to experiment with original design challenges are welcome. Come to this class for help in exploring the art quilt, completing works already in progress and for inspiration for starting new ones. The open studio format of this class allows you the freedom to work on any project(s) you choose and to work independently at your own pace in an amazing and inspirational wooded setting. Wendy will offer individual instruction and input as needed and will be available for questions.

For this class, you will need a darning foot for free-motion quilting that fits your machine, and you must be familiar and comfortable with your machine and assure it is in good working order.

“The art quilt—a creative, joyous and spontaneous journey that touches the heart and soul through exploring texture, color and design in fabric. Our creations express our feelings and ideas through quilted images.” Wendy Butler Berns
