New Ways With Kantha Workshop: 17 and 18 May 2012

Want to take your stitching in a new direction? Then sign up for this workshop with the extremely accomplished CAROLYN SULLIVAN

Carolyn, a Life Member of the Guild, author and embroiderer, will guide us through two days of decorative 'kantha' style stitching.
This technique has become a feature of her beautiful quilts, with its roots being found in the traditional stitched cloth from Indian and surrounding sub-continent cultures.

Using leaves as a theme basis, workshop participants will learn the techniques of direct and transfer, printing and stamping. Traditional floral decorative embroidery patterns will be sourced as inspiration for a sampler, and Carolyn will assist students in exploring both traditional and contemporary avenues for their work.

WORKSHOP : MAY 17 & 18 2012
VENUE : Rockdale RSL
45 Bay Street, Rockdale
9.30 for 10-3 pm

Carolyn participates regularly in the Guild's Manly Gallery Art Quilt Shows, as well as exhibiting in International Quilt Shows.
This journey is bound to interest us all, and the NSW Quilters' Guild is extremely proud to have Carolyn as The Guest Speaker at our special 30th Birthday Meeting at Burwood RSL 19th May 2012.

Further details of both Workshop and Birthday Meeting can be found in The Feb 2012 Template or on The Guild web site.
