Quilting By The Lake ~ July 27-31

I’m touring and I have a new book out. I’m teaching at guilds as I’m invited, and every where I go people ask me where else are you teaching? Where can I take one of your workshops? Are you going to be teaching here…or there… (insert your favorite quilting retreat or conference)?

So the short answer is I will be teaching improv for five days at Quilting By The Lake in Syracuse NY, July 27-31, 2015 — this summer!

Score to Get Your Curve On from The Improv Handbook For Modern Quilters by Sherri Lynn Wood

I’m teaching a two-day intensive workshop on quilting from a score. In this workshop you will explore the FUNDAMENTAL concept to flexible patterning and improvisational process: How to set limits that best support your creative flow. This is the KEY principle that will allow you to progress in creating and following your own patterns. Finding your flow not only feels super good, it actually replaces the need of having to work from a plan.

This two-day will be followed by a three-day intensive workshop on ruler-free curve patchwork. In this improv workshop you will learn advanced composition and ruler and template-free CURVE patchwork techniques. Improvising with curves challenges you to commit one-step-at-a-time, and to celebrate your mistakes because it ain’t easy! Yet it all works out in the end. Often our mistakes and the challenges we overcome, lead us into the most interesting territory, and result in the most dynamic quilts.

These two workshops build on each other. I recommend both, and there are still a few spots left in each. If you can swing a trip to Syracuse this July then by all means join me for this rare opportunity to do some intensive improv work. AND it’s a great deal cost wise. SIGN UP TODAY!  Or feel free to contact me with specific questions about the workshop content.

Unless your guild has invited me to teach, the next opportunity for a 6hr workshop will not be until QuiltCon West in February 2016.
