Thursday, April 18, 2019 Meeting, 6:30 pm
Join us as we welcome Loren and Sharon Wilhelm who are presenting a program on “Sashing Bold and Dangerous – How they can make or break your design.”
Sometimes we get the blocks finished and we are at a stopping point trying to decide what sashing or setting to put with those blocks. Some blocks are so old we have to be very creative to blend the old with the new. Sharon and Loren will give you some examples of things that just happened and some that were planned with a display of quilts.
Loren will also have some of his wooden creations available.
Sharon is an entrepreneur of several previous companies: Country Collectibles, Sharon’s Quilt Depot and most recently co- owner in Quilt Ideas pattern division. She designs blocks of the month, single patterns, punch needle, embroidery patterns and more quilting designs for Loren to make out of wood. She loves to teach anything pertaining to quilting, help quilters put together colors for new quilts and make quilts to give away. Our newest adventure is to give guild programs and workshops using a vast collection of quilts.
Loren and Sharon have been giving programs and workshops for guilds in Texas and Oklahoma. As owners of Quilt Ideas and a great pairing of talents of speaking, teaching, designing quilts and manufacturing of over 180+ wooden products for quilters.
