03 Dec 2011 SCRAP Workshop: SCRAP Quilts w/ Kenan Shapero
As a follow-up to the many wonderful quilt exhibitions around the Bay Area (Gee’s Bend, Amish Quilts, Scrap Quilts) join us as Kenan Shapero shares her knowledge and inspiration for the Scrap quilt in the perfect place… SCRAP!
Kenan will begin the class with an introduction to the world of Scrap quilts giving an overview of the various and many types. Then she will lead participants through the materials depot to investigate all the bits of wonderful fabric found at SCRAP that can be incorporated into a SCRAP quilt of their own. By the end of the day participants will have the first few blocks of their quilt done or a small top ready to be made into a sandwich and quilted. Included in the workshop will be information for how to quilt and bind these small masterpieces. Please bring a sewing machine if you have one and if you do not we will have a couple available for use.
Kenan has been making quilts for 17 years. While many of them are not Scrap quilts many do incorporate scrap quilt techniques. She has spent 13 years observing, unloading, rolling, fondling and shelving many tons of fabric at SCRAP!
