QBL 2014 Workshops Announced

Thank You Morris Louis
Terry Jarrard-Dimond

This week I received the 2014 Quilting by the Lake workshop catalog and was very happy to see an example (pictured above) of my work featured on the cover.

I will be teaching Line As Language during the first session of the program, July 13 - 18, 2014.  I first taught this class during 2012 at QBL2 as a 3 day workshop.  The class was well received and has been expanded to 5 days with all new exercises and of course, more time to explore the many applications of line in art.

The course descriptions have not yet been published online but you can request information at :   Quilting by the Lake is a program of the Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn, NY but is held on the campus of Onondaga Community College, Syracuse, NY.


The focus of this workshop is on the study and application of one of the basic elements of design - LINE.  Dramatic or understated, frantic or languid, Line can be the focus of a composition or a solid supporting player.  Learn how to incorporate line to tell your story using machine piecing and applique.  Work directly with fabric as well as studies created in cut and painted paper to be finalized in fabric.  Work will be made in black & white as well as color. Group and individual discussion will be an important part of this class.  Design is the foundation for great work.  I embrace creativity and work from a base of encouragement for all students.


Thank you for stopping by Studio 24-7.
I'm looking forward to being
back at QBL and hope
to see you

love hearing from you

  1. I was excited to see your class! My daughter got the catalog in the mail first last week and (of course - LOL) opened it. I hear from across the house, "Hey Momma - you made the QBL brochure!" LOL! So I figure if you're in the catalog - you need to go - grin! So I guess I'll see you there!

    1. They should have given you a by-line! See you there.
