NEW! Charity Sewing Event!

Dress a Girl Around the World
Join Gina Ordonez and Ruth Bernhardt-Kuehl as we make cute dresses from men’s shirts.  These dresses will be sent to "Dress a Girl around the World", a program of Hope 4 Women International (http://www.dressagirlaroundtheworld.com), where they will be distributed to girls in need. Using large-sized men’s cotton shirts, we’ll design, cut, sew, and trim a dress.  No matter how much sewing experience you have, there will be something for you to do from tracing and cutting out the pattern, to construction, ironing, making ruffles and buttonholes.   
 
Free shirt kits will be available for you to use.  Alternatively, you may bring:

  • Large and Extra Large men’s cotton dress shirts
    • The more colorful the better
    • Hawaiian shirts are really fun
    • No all white dress shirts, please
    • The shirts need to be natural cotton, poplin, seersucker or broadcloth
  • At least ½ yard coordinating fabric
  • Fabric will be available for purchase at a 10% discount

 We ask that you also bring basic sewing items – colorful thread, scissors, rotary cutter and small ruler.   You will use our classroom sewing machines, so leave yours at home! There is no cost for this workshop, but you may wish to donate a few dollars at the class so Hope 4 Women International can purchase some girls’ underclothes to be sent with the dresses.

TQT Welcomes Amy Walsh of Blue Underground Studios!

The Quilter's Trunk is excited to host Amy Walsh of Blue Underground Studios a fun and educational workshop. Blue Underground Studios is known for its fresh and innovative patterns. In addition, Amy is a fabric designer. Her most recent line, Color Matters, features beautiful, bold colors with large graphic designs. It combines colors in a unique way that really pops!

Color Workshop
Amy is here to de-mystify the color wheel and give you the confidence to play with color and expand your horizons when putting projects together.  What you learn can be applied not only to quilts, but to any project that involves color choice - painting your kitchen, selecting carpet for your den, picking shoes to match an outfit, you name it!
In this hands-on workshop, Amy will take students from exploring the color wheel to perfecting their own color palette and understanding how to make their own harmonious choices. The workshop consists of several lessons, with thought-provoking and fun activities. The workshop is a study in color, and does not involve any sewing. Lunch will be provided.
