Join us for the 2016 Quilts Unlimited Opening Day Lecture and Luncheon.
This year will feature a lecture by our juror of awards Kathryn Greenwold:
CLEANING UP THE LEFTOVERS or What To Do with Your UFO’s - Just like leftover Thanksgiving dinner fills your refrigerator, your UFO’s fill your studio with clutter. This clutter is potential for new quilts, just as the leftovers become turkey tetrazzini! The lecture will include a trunk show of some of my UFO’s that have been transformed and completed, with suggestions for how you might take a fresh look at the “leftovers” lurking in your sewing room.
Kathryn Greenwold has been quilting for over 30 years. Her quilting and needlework began with her grandmothers as a child, but it was a town sesquicentennial celebration in 1978 that began her serious quilting adventure. A friend recruited her to help design and create a quilt as part of the celebration. It was a success, and a life-long interest began. Kathryn has qualified as a quilt appraiser, offers a variety of instruction and design coaching, lectures, and is a quilt show judge. Her quilting classes include quilt repair and restoration, antique reproduction, ethnic piecing techniques, various appliqué techniques, and art quilt treatments such as fabric manipulation and surface alteration. Her lectures appeal to general audiences as well as quilting groups and guilds. She has been teaching for 16 years, and has been providing appraisal services for 12 years.
