Improvise! Ruler-Free Patchwork Performance
— a 1hr Improv Theater  / Patchwork Mashup with Sherri Lynn Wood. Ruler-free patchwork techniques featured in the Improv Handbook For Modern Quilters, such as basic strip, bias strip, wedge, curve, stack, float, repetition, flow, bleeding, darting, natural fit, approximate measuring, trouble shooting, and composition tips, tricks and techniques will be demonstrated and performed on the spot according to suggestions received from the audience. Attendees will leave with enough knowledge to explore and incorporate ruler-free techniques in their future patchwork.
Attendees are invited (optional) to contribute up to a 1/4 yd of fabric for the patchwork performance – zingers and “ugly” fabrics welcome!

And of course we’ll have snacks and wine and 20% off all fabric purchased during the event!

It would be helpful, but is not necessary, if you let us know you will be coming…
we don’t want to run out of spirits!

Just leave us a comment if you plan to atttend.
