I will be teaching 5 classes this year at the Houston Quilt Festival 2021.
JAPANESE FUROSHIKI WRAPPING CLOTH WITH YUKATA ACCENTS
Thursday, October 28 - 1:30 - 4:30 p.m.
Students will learn to make a traditional furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth) using sashiko stitching techniques. Yukata fabrics will be added for additional design interest. Different types of sashiko stitches will be taught as well as how to transfer a design to fabric. Sashiko designs are provided in the kit and a variety of stencils will be offered for use in class for additional design motifs. Trunk show in class.
(Shown in white for detail only. You will receive a navy sampler.)
If you've wanted to try sashiko or just improve your skills, this class is for you. You'll be working on a 27" x 41" panel with six 13" square traditional sashiko designs. The designs are pre-printed for you on navy cotton fabric (shown in white for detail only.) You can use the panel as-is or cut apart and use each design for a quilt square, pillow top or other project. Trunk show in class.
JAPANESE PATCHWORK MAT OR ART PIECE Friday, October 29 - 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Students will create a 14" x 36" boro-inspired table runner with various Japanese textiles and sashiko stitching. You'll select from yukata, kasuri and other traditional Japanese fabrics provided, and add sashiko stitching to transform the patch work into a one-of-a-kind table runner. Optional border and backing can be added at home. Trunk show in class.
YAZZII BAG MEETS BORO & SASHIKO Saturday, October 30: 9:00 a.m. - Noon
Students will receive a Yazzi Craft Bag to embellish with sashiko stitching, Japanese fabric patchwork or both!

Trunk show in class.

Assorted vintage kimono silks will be provided from the instructor’s collection. Minimal sewing at home to add a backing and/or finish the scarf. Trunk show during class.
