Victoria Findlay Wolfe will be giving a lecture at Huntington Quilters on Tuesday, February 3. Her attitude to quilting is described on her website http://bumblebeansinc.com/ as “I love QUILTING for myself and I love QUILTING for other people. It makes me very happy to be commissioned to make a QUILT for someone who I know will cherish it. A QUILT I have made keeps me attached to the people who live with it and that, besides my loving family, brings me the greatest joy.”
Victoria will be teaching a workshop on February 7 at Christ Lutheran Church, 189 Burr Road, East Northport, from 10:00 – 4:00.
The workshop will improvisationally explore new ways to use your SCRAPS, 15 minutes at a time! Learn techniques in playing in your scraps to make your own beautiful designed quilts. Sharpen your design skills, learn about combining colors and prints in new ways, push it futher by using templates then watch your own unique quilt design. Discover just how distinctive classis quilt blocks can be, when they are constructed with more spunk and spontaneity! Build confidence in colore, quilting techniques, and design all through PLAY!
