    "Fabric Design Using Procreate"


    By day, Sally is a hydrologist.  By night, she is a Fiber Artist.  Join NMQA to learn how Sally designs her own fabric and has it printed by a company such as Spoonflower.  The image below shows designs Sally has created using Procreate and inked to create the various colors and shading.



    We'll also have Show & Tell at the meeting!  If you're attending in person, bring your item with you and if you're attending through zoom, send your photos to Kris Lange, klange@email.com at least 48 hours before the meeting.

    Instructor: Sally Williams

    Have you ever wanted to add depth and character to your quilt?  Do you like to embellish your quilts? Would you rather not buy 37 brown fabrics to get all of the shades you need for you quilt?

    In this class we will play with some common tools to color the fabric you add to your quilt.  In the first half of the class we will color a piece of pre-printed black and white fabric or some pre-quilted white fabric with Inktense pencils and alcohol markers.   In the second half of this class we will use stencils and tsukineko inks to create a surface design on a piece of white fabric.  We will use fabric markers and alcohol markers to further embellish the stenciled designs to make them pop.  No drawing skills required. 

    There is a required $45 kit fee payable to instructor (cash or credit cards accepted) on the day of the class.  The kit will provide most of the required items for the class.

    NMQA Cancellation Policy:  If NMQA cancels a workshop, you will receive a refund of the workshop fee via U.S. mail. However, due to contract obligations with instructors, NMQA is unable to provide refunds if you cancel your participation in a workshop and the Guild is not able to fill your place from a waiting list.

    ​Fusible Applique, The Whimsical Workshop Way
    Heidi Pridemore

    This workshop is designed to teach you quick and easy shortcuts for making Fusible Appliqué quilts. Heidi Pridemore will show you the techniques that she uses every day in The Whimsical Workshop studio, covering her favorite tools and how to finish raw appliqué, among other insider tips. This is a techniques class; the project is designed to cover all the different elements of fusible appliqué. The project is small so we can get through all the steps in one class without creating a UFO. There is a $35 required kit fee and just a few items needed for class

    Heidi was born and raised in Rochester, NY, where she received a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design from Rochester Institute of Technology. In 2000, Heidi began offering her services as a product designer to a number of fabric companies. She created her own line of quilt patterns beginning in 2002 and in 2004 Heidi started designing fabric in her own bright and whimsical style. By 2005 the workload warranted expanding to a partnership and The Whimsical Workshop, LLC 

    Over the decades, she has developed a robust curriculum of fun lectures and workshops for crafters of all skill levels. Her Website www.TheWhimsicalWorkshop.com has 100’s of her patterns available.  Heidi spends most of her time designing and traveling to trade shows, giving lectures and running workshops. When not traveling she enjoys staying at home in Arizona with her husband Matthew.
