April 19, 2023 @ 10:00 AM 12:00 PM

Quilt designer and author, Karla Alexander has written eight books for Martingale & Company – That Patchwork Place.  She also designs patterns under the name Saginaw Street Quilt Company.  Karla is part of the design team for Creative Grids – and has designed seven rulers along with a variety of companion patterns.  Karla teaches workshops and give lectures all over the country and teaches how to quilt using a variety of methods,  including her own stack and shuffle methods.

Karla’s philosophy regarding quilting is to enjoy the process, learn from your experience and take what you learn from one project to the next. As a teacher, she enthusiastically inspires students to discover and create their own individual style and enjoy creative flow!

LIFT THE QUILTS OUT OF YOUR STASH – An informative discussion for quilt makers of all skill levels and experience.  You will be looking at your stash in a whole new way and actually start using your fabric rather than just admiring it!  Enjoy the confidence you’ll gain exploring traditional and untraditional quilt methods by adding your own twist!  Tips will inspire excitement, creating unexpected surprises ready to be quilted into your next project!  Challenge yourself to take small or bold steps as you learn to work with your fabric and create your own methods and styles.  A trunk show with lots of and lots of quilts will illustrate many different styles of quilts as well as subjects discussed.
