Kathryn Pellman is an artist, fashionista, quilter, cook, baker, gardener and storyteller. Her whimsical series of small, playful, single frame cartoons featuring long limbed and knobby kneed fashionistas that invoke fashion illustration. Commercial fabric is her paint; thread is her ink and the sewing machine her pen. 

 

Kathryn's lecture is fun, entertaining, and amusing with Word Salad, Fashionistas and Girl-friends and a few Angry and Not So Angry Women. She chronicles how quilting frames and tells the story of her real and imagined life and her love of storytelling that took her from fashion design to traditional, hand-pieced miniatures to quilts to sleep under to cartoon quilts to fashionistas and angry and not so angry women.  kathrynpellman.com

November Meeting -- Saturday, Nov 12, 2022

Lyric Montgomery Kind

The Elements of Art for Every Quilter

 

Meeting begins at 10:00am

Program begins at 11:00am

 

Kick-start your creativity and learn about the basic elements and principles of good design. Learn why some colors fizz while others explode, why some quilts calm and some excite. Examples from every genre in the quilt world show how you can use a broader color palette to showcase your favorite blue, or more intentional methods for using differently scaled prints.

This lecture will help you learn few simple tools from the artist's kit that will help you take your work, whether traditional or contemporary, to the next level. Audience participation keeps viewers engaged after the lights go down and the gorgeous quilts go up on your screen.

Lyric translates the language of ART into delightful and simple to understand concepts and presents them in such an entertaining and practical way that everyone goes home thinking, "I can do that!" She is on a crusade to convince every quilter that they can use the principles of art in whatever kinds of quilts they love to create. lyrickinard.com

Add beads of all shapes and sizes to your quilts and wearable art, easily and after you are done quilting. Here’s the prize: no knots or mess on the back! Learn to embellish in a way that adds to the overall design instead of looking like an afterthought.
