"Threadwork"—program at Choo Choo guild

Threadwork program at the
Choo Choo Quilters guild meeting.
In addition to "collecting" fabric, I love collecting threads... at quilt shows, sewing centers, quilt shops and on line. With my vast experience collecting threads, and a bit of experience using them, I'll be presenting the program on "Threadwork" at the next Choo Choo Quilters guild meeting, Monday, August 15. The presentation also includes using photos as inspiration and working in a series.

This presentation is part of the guild's year-long Inspirational Quilting program which has covered a gamut of topics on design concepts, color and, most recently, innovative piecing. Topics planned for the remainder of the year include surface embellishment, borders and bindings.

I've been making notes for this program for the last two months and had it pretty well outlined and finalized. Then, about a week ago, I got a new iPad as an early birthday gift. As a corollary to Sydney J. Harris' columns on "things I found while looking up other things," this week I worked off the premise, "there's nothing like a real project to facilitate the learning curve for operating a new device."

So, if the technology gods show favor on us at Monday's guild meeting, my Threadwork presentation will be on screen. Wish us luck!

Great threadwork references:
