|In this lecture/demonstration, Linda will show you how to use a variety of mixed media products to enhance your quilting and sewing techniques, different ways to inspire you to use them, and proper care of the finished projects. Linda will focus on how to use Siva Paint sticks, Inktense pencils and blocks, fabric glitter, and Angelina fibers for your projects.|
Linda is a native Nebraskan, but has transplanted nicely into the Columbia, MO area. She began sewing at a young age but started quilting after the birth of her first son in the late 80’s.
Linda’s quilts are “Not like your grandmother’s” -- she loves to mix different mediums and techniques to create unique one-of-a-kind fiber arts. Linda has been a quilting/sewing teacher since 2008. She has taught a variety of quilt guild programs throughout the Midwest. She is an online instructor for Craftsy, and her class, Exploring Natural Quilt Motifs has been taken by over 2,900 students. She loves to share her knowledge and discoveries with others.
Linda has recently self-published a series of workbooks to enhance her Free-Motion Machine Quilting classes and has created several patterns and machine embroidery designs. She blogs about her sewing adventures at http://lindabcreative.blogspot.com/, found on her website at www.lindabrattencreations.com.
Every September our guild meets for a potluck dinner to
enjoy good food and great company. Bring something tasty to share,
There's no doubt that the food is central, but the most important ingredient is socializing
The meeting (and dinner) starts early at 6:30 pm. If you can, arrive a little earlier (6-ish) to help set up the room. Make sure you bring a serving utensil for your dish. The council provides plates, flatware, napkins, glasses, and drinks. your latest Show-and-Tell, and a friend.
2018 Quilt Challenge
This year's quilt challenge is to make a small wall quilt that symbolizes your birthday month. It may be any size, but no larger than 20” x 20”. We’ll hang them and vote on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes. We can guess the months depicted in the quilts.
