quilt squareAs a self-professed “junker,” I have a very hard time passing up unfinished handmade projects when I see them. A few years ago I came across a stack of Quilt Blocks that were never made into a quilt. They were beautifully tattered and worn, and my heart wondered about the hands that crafted them.

Inspiration struck.  Repurposed Quilt Square

I’d love to spend a couple of days together taking you through my process of stenciling, stitching and adorning these wonderful remnants of past creativity.

I’ve taught this a couple of times in a much smaller timeframe, but think it’d be cool to get you to completion or darn near close to it in this 2-day workshop!

The first day we’ll plan your piece and dive in with a boatload of embroidery stitches. The second day we’ll talk attachments and how to pull everything together with 3-D objects and backing fabric. And, keep stitching, stitching, stitching. We’ll take a break for lunch each day, included in your workshop registration.

Stitching with Kristin

You’ll get a kit that includes:

  • Your choice of a vintage quilt square (or if you have one that is meaningful to you, please bring it!)
  • Your choice of backing fabric from our stash
  • A hoop
  • My favorite needles
  • Access to our stash of buttons and small objects to include in your work
  • Use of our studio paints and stencils

Please bring: 

  • A basic sewing kit including small scissors, needles, thread, straight pins, etc.
  • A variety of embroidery thread in your favorite colors. DMC is a great choice as well as Perle cotton and thicker threads with more heft. Really, experimentation and texture are encouraged!
  • Small 3-D Items that are meaningful to you

As always, lunch both days, as well as snacks & drinks, are provided. Chocolate is an Art Supply at Ephemera Paducah!

The minimum age to participate is 16.

The minimum needed to make this class is 6; the maximum is 15.

Before registering, please familiarize yourself with our Cancellation Policies.
