  Kawandi - Patch Quilting from India
Instructor: Mary Delano

Join Fiber Artist Mary DeLano to explore an adaptation of Kawandi - a quilting technique developed by the Siddi people of Western India. This technique combines piecing and quilting into one step. Fabric patches are quilted to a backing, from the edge of the quilt to its center, using large running stitches. Design decisions are made as each patch is added to the quilt. Every quilt is unique, bearing evidence of the quilter's "hand" and design aesthetic in its composition.

Mary will offer a choice of two kits for this class. One will consist of wool patches on a wool background, with a special piece of wool on which a piece of tie has transferred its dye. The other will include naturally dyed and eco printed fabrics with a cloth backing. Mary will reach out to students before the class to find out which kit each student prefers, as well as any color preferences.

Students should bring to class: Sewing scissors

Skill Level: all levels welcome
Enrollment: Minimum 3, maximum 10

  Beyond Zoom Looms - Pin Weaving On a Higher Plane

Instructor: Linda Whiting  

Zoom looms and Weavette looms are fine for making small squares but what if you aspire to more? What if you have a more adventurous muse who wants to combine different yarns or even add different materials to your weaving. You can weave a larger square or rectangle or even weave a shape or weave to a clothing pattern. Come learn the possibilities!  We will be weaving a larger square which when completed can be used as a pillow top as is, or with borders sewn to the edges to make a larger pillow. It can be lined and made into a clutch bag or to become a pocket or focal element of a garment. Weaving does not always have to be done horizontally. Learn how to create hills and valleys and incorporate various yarns, colors, textures to make your woven piece totally and uniquely your own. We will discuss many ways of using this technique that you can take in whatever direction you choose to go with it.

Skill Level: All skill levels are welcome.
Enrollment: 10
Workshop fee: $80 includes foam base for weaving your square, long weaving needle, fusible interfacing backing.

Materials to bring to class: Package of long, glass-headed quilting pins, scissors, a selection of yarns and other weaving materials (cloth strips, metallic cord, ribbons, etc.  Think about coordinating your colors, and bringing other materials to share with the class. Bulkier  yarns will weave more quickly than finer yarns. Finer yarns could be bundled to bulk them up. Yarns and ribbons can be combined in your weaving. Be creative in your choices. Imagination is the key.
