WORKSHOPS BY SUZANNE MARSHALL: TAKE AWAY APPLIQUÉ & WACKY BIRDS

Quilter extraordinaire Suzanne Marshall will be teaching two workshops for us in May 2018.

On Friday, May 11, she will teach her take away appliqué technique and how to smooth curves on one of the blocks from her award winning Art Nouveau quilt.

On Saturday, May 12, she will cover the take away technique again with four wacky birds patterns, plus how embroidery can enhance your blocks.

Each workshop will be a full day session — 6 hours at the Chaires Community Center, starting at 10 am.

Fee: $60

Don’t miss out on this chance to learn from a master quilter!

Both classes are now open to members and non-members.
Come join us for a wonderful day of applique.

If you are interested in taking one or both classes a waiting list be started immediately.

Two Suzanne Marshall books are available from the guild library: Adventure & Appliqué and Quilts from Concept to Contest.
