Channeling Ruth Rae
On Monday, October 31st and Tuesday, November 1st,
Mom-in-law, Marylin Huskamp, and I will be teaching
two workshops at International Quilt Festival, Houston
by Ruth Rae.
Due to illness, Ruth is unable to attend, so we are
stepping-in to insure that Ruth's techniques can still
be shared with eager students.
The first workshop is an Exploration Into Mixed Media
(#119 in the Class Catalog). We will be altering fabrics
and paper with resin, paint, and pens. Learning to
incorporate machine and hand sewing onto a multi-
surface art quilt. Above is a sample artwork, Marylin
made to show participants.
The second workshop is Velvet and Lace Jewelry
(#232 in the Class Catalog). Using machine stitching,
bead crochet, and wire techniques, we will incorporate
ribbons and fabrics to create a versatile "statement"
jewelry piece. Below is the sample bracelet/necklace
with a display pillow I created to share with students.
There are still spaces available in both classes. If
you are attending Festival, we hope you will consider
