Workshop opportunity in New Jersey

There are a few spaces left in the Sketches from Nature workshop I'm teaching at the Garden State Quilters' Guild next Tuesday, April 13 in Chatham NJ. If you're interested please contact Becky at the guild to sign up. You don't need to be a member to take the class.

We'll be free-motion quilting with black thread and then adding acrylic ink to create the look of pen-and-ink drawings with watercolor effects. A really creative and easy process that looks more difficult than it is, this technique is from my new book, Jane Davila's Surface Design Essentials. The supply list is minimal and I provide all of the inks for use in class. I hope you can join me!

We loved Jane's workshop for its creativity, and the ability to complete several small projects in a single day. Our group of nine quilters finished close to 20 small pieces, for use in other projects. Very stimulating and satisfying!

I'm so sorry that I had to work yesterday, and couldn't come to the class!

Jane, your lecture on Monday was fantastic. It's been buzzing in my head to the point of when I was watching "Glee" last night, during the first slow dance/make-out scene, all I noticed was the fish painting on the wall in the background, and how it used the various design principles you spoke of on Monday.
