Sep 20 – Rediscovering Your Stash
9:30 am – 4:30 pm at Ruth’s Stitchery
Gain color confidence and plan creative ways to use your stash in one day! Mix a big dose of color theory with an in-depth discussion of combining patterns and a pinch of working with large-scale fabrics and you’ll end up with a plan for projects that you want to make from the fabrics you already have. In addition, you’ll have consultations about how to freshen up your stash while learning how to use fabrics that you love but find perplexing. You’ll see new possibilities for working with your stash and leave the workshop with beautiful palettes and plans for your next few projects. Bring patterns you love and fabrics you’d like to use or are unsure how to use and you’ll be amazed at how you’ll be able to pull it all together. Our Fabric Fusion quilt, shown on the right, is just one example of a quilt that students have made using their stashes and what they have learned in this workshop.
