October's Presentation 

Quilter Spotlight: Sandi Goldstein - Integrating Rust, Indigo and Botanicals into Quilts

Sandi Goldstein’s quilting style has taken many twists and turns since making her first Amish-inspired quilt in the 80’s. Hand dyeing and indigo work inspired her to explore the fusion of rust, indigo and botanical printing. Besides being drawn to this combination esthetically, Sandi explores the relationship between decay, renewal, and beauty. Iron degrades fabric, leaves transfer their beauty on the fabric and indigo transforms through a fermentation process. Sandi will share the tools and process for each of these elements through photographs as well showing recent examples of quilts.
