Sue Bleiweiss is an award winning fiber artist who creates vibrant, colorful and whimsical quilted fiber art collages using her own hand dyed cotton. She is the author of several books and magazine articles about techniques she uses and has appeared on TV and podcasts. Her award winning quilts have been exhibited internationally.

We are going to start with a trunk show of her inspiring and fanciful designs and I hope we will have enough interest after her presentation to schedule a zoom workshop too!
An invitation to the lecture on zoom will be forwarded to members by Marie as we get closer. If you have any technical questions contact Marie and she will walk you through it.
This is going to be a terrific presentation you don’t want to miss so mark your calendar

Tentative Programs Scheduled for 2021 - Watch for Updates
At this time, we have cancelled all in person events. The list below are tentative programs for 2021.
I recommend you search for the webpages and quilt shops of our upcoming speakers to get inspiration and perhaps buy some products or take an online lesson.
August 25-26, 2021 Joyce Hughes
Check out JoyceHughesOriginals.com to see some of Joyce’s panels created from her own photography! Joyce is a fellow Pennsylvanian from Kintnersville. Joyce will speak to us about her Journey into Quilting and Dimensional Thread Painting on Wednesday evening and follow up with a workshop on Thursday of Dimensional Thread Painting in a hands-on project. Be inspired and Joyce will provide you the tools to learn how to add this new dimension to your art.
September 22-23, 2021 Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill
I know you are going to want to sign up for Sheri’s email tips at wholecirclestudio.com. I am really enjoying her bright, eye popping colors and fun ideas. Sheri will do a Trunk Show of her work with plenty of time for Q & A and will have lots of her patterns for purchase. On Thursday Sheri will be presenting her “Walk the Talk and Quilt It! Workshop to get us all using those walking feet! Sheri is an active member of the modern quilt community and has won several awards for her patterns and quilting. Check it out!
October 27-28, 2021 Erin Underwood
I met Erin at the Oaks Quilt Show and cannot wait to have her join us her in PA. Erin’s quilt shop is in Newark, DE “Blue Hen Quilt Shop”. Maybe time to order some new fabric, threads or patterns? If you were at the show you will certainly remember her tuffets! Erin will have a terrific trunk show of her quilts on Wednesday evening and Thursday’s workshop is still to be determined. Check out her website at Erin Underwood Quilts and bluehenquiltshop.com and we will all vote for our favorite so we can create in her workshop.
We are pleased to have many of our members give presentations as well whenever we are once again able to meet. If you would like to show us a new idea or technique, please let me know.
Keep Calm, Keep Quilting
