The Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Art
The date is Saturday, August 23rd. In the morning I’ll help students to realize that “quilting the quilt can be as much fun as making the top” in my “Beyond Meandering” workshop.
The afternoon workshop is called “Threaded Borders” and in it quilters will learn how to take simple shapes and designs, combine them with high contrast threads and take their quilts to a whole new level of excitement.
One class flows nicely into the next and you would be welcome to take either one … or both! (there is a discount if you sign up for both).

Pat Sloan in Wisconsin
You are invited!
Three Milwaukee area quilt guilds: Crazy Quilters (Mukwonago), West Suburban (Brookfield) and Patched Lives (Wales), are teaming up to bring nationally known quilter, speaker and teacher, PAT SLOAN, to Wisconsin for a 4 day event!
On Wednesday, September 10th, Pat will kick off her visit with a lecture at the Richard T. Anderson Center on the Pewaukee Campus of Waukesha County Technical College, 800 Main St, Pewaukee, WI. The lecture is entitled:
An Evening With Pat Sloan – “Quilting with Expresso …. Quilts, Creativity, and Fun!”
You are invited to this event! It is open to everyone. The fee for the evening is just $10 (there is no charge for members of the three sponsoring guilds).
Then, on the following Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Pat will be presenting two different and exciting workshops – and we have a few openings left:
Wild and Free – create quilts with personality (this workshop is being offered twice!) – Thursday, September 11, and Saturday, September 13, 2014; 9 – 3:30
The second workshop is:
“The Magic of EASY Machine Appliqué” – draw, cut, machine stitch, so easy anyone can do it! – Friday, September 12, 2014; 9 – 3:30
We’ve created a website about the event with loads of information about Pat and all the details on the event. Please click on: http://crazysuburbanpatchedquilts.wordpress.com/ to read all about it!
There are a few spots left in the workshops, and they’re going fast. If you’re interested in signing up you may contact Kathy Frye: rfrye@, (262)424-4477 cell, (262)679-1798 home.
