Workshop with Amy Bradley! We had so much fun, we decided to invite her back again next spring! Friday, April 27 & Saturday, April 28, 2012 from 10am - 5pm. Workshop fee....$75.00 for one day or attend both days for $100.00 includes catered lunch. Last time everyone had so much fun, please reserve your spot early!!

Some of our customers missed the first workshop because they were still in FL for the winter, so this time we scheduled Amy to come in April! Amy will also appreciate the warmer weather, she nearly froze last February, Brrrrrrr!

Here's what happened last February!

Amy's samples filled KC's classroom walls with Fun!!

Just a few of her awesome samples! Click here to see what Amy had to say about KC and Saratoga Springs.

Upcoming Workshops!

Workshops with Kathryn Greenwold.

Snow Fantasy - Create folded and cut snowflakes from freezer paper. Then you will use them as "masks" for painting your background, for cutting fabric applique shapes and tracing for machine or hand quilting patterns. Each participant will have a truly individualized wall hanging when complete. This class will be scheduled in two sessions.

This piece is hanging at our shop, you have to see it in person. The pictures do not do it justice.

Snow Fantasy will be held on Thursday, September 15th and Thursday, the 22nd from 10am-2pm. $50.00 class fee plus $5.00 materials fee.

Quilt Appraisals by Kathryn - Thursday, September 22nd from 3pm-7pm. $35.00 per quilt. Please call Kathryn directly to set up your appointment at 518-370-1667.

Yes! You are creative - The basic elements of design, color choices and strategies for creating your own quilts will be discussed and demonstrated. Hands-on exercises in design and use of color are included. Each participant will design an original block and begin work on an individualized quilt based on these design elements. A packet of handouts and exercises will be provided to each participant. Held on Thursday, October 13th from 10am-4pm. $30.00 class fee plus $2.00 packet fee.

Fabric Painting for Special Effects - We will use paint, pastels, stamps and other media especially designed for use on fabrics to create blended colors, color overlay on printed fabrics and other special effects for use in either traditional or non-traditional quilting. Three work stations will be set up and the students may move from station to station to try all of the techniques as they create an art quilt collage. Thursday, October 20th from 10am-4pm. $30.00 class fee plus $5.00 materials fee.
