With this information, you can craft one-of-a-kind fabric for virtually any project. Though we will work with cotton, this workshop will also discuss using this process in combination with rayon, linen, and heavier fabrics such as canvas.

    Through a combination of in-class instruction, PDFs , and pre-recorded videos, I will walk you through your first explorations of dyeing and patterning with wax resist.

    Virtual Lecture - Dying to Make

       

                   

    Whether for personal or business reasons, I sew a variety of things, from garments to quilts to home wares. Beyond my personal aesthetic, the unifying element for these disparate items is they are crafted in and informed by my passion for hand patterned and dyed fabric. That's where all my creations begin and oftentimes, where I draw inspiration.

    In this lecture, I'll walk you through my process from gathering patterning inspiration to project selection and discuss why working this way may yield a more sustainable making practice.

She’ll discuss the progression of her work and show her Radial Quilts, Watercolor Quilts, and a few others too!

    Virtual Workshop - Courthouse Colourplay

                Sign-up starts Members 07/24/21  and Non-Members 08/21/21

                        

                                               


    Explore the possibilities of colour expression and free-cutting while you create this wonky, nested Courthouse Step quilt (reminiscent of paper lanterns) in your own personal colour story. We’ll work intuitively from the centre out, creating a dynamic quilt with loads of personality. There will be no squaring up with this one -- instead Krista will show you how to “build out”, finding the fit between adjacent blocks and using up all of our scraps in the process.

    As in all of her workshops, Krista will share loads of tips while encouraging all students to find confidence in new techniques that will inform their pursuit of designing original quilts. Put your traditional quilting skills to work and explore improvisational design and piecing in a fun, supportive environment.

    Quilt size: wall hanging to lap size depending on the amount of fabric you start with. A collection of 18-25 F8's for wall hanging or 18-25 FQ's for large lap to single size (consider solids or reads-as-solids, woven shirts or small prints) plus 1 FQ contrast colour for block centres is recommended.

    Virtual Workshop - Speed Date with Improv

    Sign-up starts Members 07/25/21  and Non-Members 08/22/21


                        

                                               


    Think of this class as speed dating with improvisational piecing techniques that include curves and free-cutting.  It will be fast-paced and a lot of fun:  several techniques are introduced and demonstrated one after the other with very little time to second guess, stress or obsess over perfection. Every student will end up with a unique, original improv sampler quilt!  The focus here is to explore line, shape and happenstance in abstract design, so keep things simply graphic by using solid-coloured fabrics in black, white and one pop of colour. 

    In the afternoon, Krista will share design wall tips to jigsaw the improv elements together, seeking balance and creative design opportunities.  Some pre-cutting is required.

    This Zoom class combines pre-recorded technique videos with live instruction/support from Krista throughout the class.

    Quilt Size: without borders, approximately 20" x 20". Fabric required: 1/2 yard black, 1/2 yard white, FQ colour (all solids or reads-as-solids).

    As a traditionally-informed modern quilter, Krista has explored many different styles and techniques since she began quilting in 2000.
