There will be two workshops in 2018:
The first is on June 20, 2018, a full day workshop with Shannon Brinkley, on Scrappy Applique. Sign ups will start at the April Guild meeting. Non Guild members may register after the May Guild meeting
Cost: Members $20.00; Non-members $35.00
Scrappy Applique is a fun & simple raw-edge applique quilting technique that Shannon developed. Using fusible, you collage scrap fabric to create a unique, mosaic appearance in the applique piece. It is very quick and easy to pick up, and allows for a lot of creative possibilities.
Shannon is the author of the book, Scrappy Bits Appliqué.
