I hope you all are having a wonderful summer. I know I am. My summer has involved traveling to visit friends and family, and of course seeing fun quilters - thanks especially to you Nebraskans and North Carolinians for being so hospitable. And for teaching me about pimento cheese.
During August I am only teaching one class - a map class in Madison, CT. On Saturday, August 12, learn how to make a map quilt of a location you choose. The map above, of downtown Houston, is an example of some of the techniques you will learn. To sign up or to get more information, please visit Cate's Sew Modern's website. I hope to see you there!
(The little Houston map will be a silent auction piece for the International Quilt Association at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. If you would like to hang it in your own home, you can put a bid on it at the show.)
For local folks, I have 3 different weekly open studio workshops in the fall. In these classes, students bring their own projects, I am there to facilitate and problem solve so that everyone can have a successful and fun quilting experience. Visit the links attached to the classes for more information, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Mondays from 10am-1pm at Holyoke Creative Arts Center
Tuesdays from 9am-12pm at Holyoke Creative Arts Center
Wednesdays from 1-4pm at Hill Institute
Series 2000 of Quilting Arts TV is airing soon. Check your local PBS station's listings for dates and times. Or you can buy a copy here. I am going to preview my episodes this evening, maybe while covering my eyes with my fingers.
Currently I am working my way through the Georgia O'Keeffe catalog from an exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. The exhibit explores not only O'Keeffe's modern work, but how she lived her life as a modernist. I especially loved seeing her clothing, some of which she made and is impeccably constructed. If the exhibit travels to a museum near you, I highly recommend that you stop by to view it.
All the best,
