traditional flying geese block. She will display a selection of quilts and ideas created
with her Split Flying Geese technique and explain how easy it can be to create
beautiful unique quilts.
|JULY 18 AMI SIMMS
THE OLD ORDER AMISH
|Thursday, July 18—Invisible Applique with Ami Simms . The workshop will be immediately after
the day meeting from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. The cost of the workshop is $45. Please bring a
sack lunch so that we can start promptly at noon.
Workshop Description from Ami: Explore a new way to appliqué where the thread is nearly
invisible. Learn by sewing with butt- ugly thread. We won't be making anything pretty in class,
but by the time we're done, you'll want to run right out and start a king-size Rose of Sharon.
Students will focus on the stitch itself, sewing straight lines and then
curves. If time permits, demonstrations of points and V-shapes will be shown.
This is a technique workshop, not a project workshop. Ami will provide a kit with all you need
to get started with hand applique. See the workshop information page on the website for full
