Issue #36  Maria Elkins Making Faces Workshop

July 1, 2011

Maria Elkins 


Come and join us on Saturday, August 27, 2011!   9:00am-12:00pm

Bernina Main Street is proud to announce that Maria Elkins will be with us to teach her most popular workshop "Making Faces"


This workshop is suitable for all skill levels, even non-quilters.  No artistic ability is required!  (You don't actually even have to be quilter to take this class.  The finished portrait can be framed instead of quilted.)  Focus will be on manipulating a digital photograph to create a fused applique pattern.  Step-by-step process will be demonstrated in class, and written instructions will be provided, but students will not have to manipulate their own photo in class. 


This is a half-day workshop:  Students will cut out and fuse their portrait during class, and instructions will be given on ways to quilt the portrait later on their own.


Cost is $45 which includes a $10 materials fee.  Space for this informative workshop is limited to 20 students.  Pre-registration and pre-payment are a MUST!  Early signup is imperative for time to prepare the students' photos.  We have about 15 spots left.  Don't delay!


Workshop will be held at Happy Corner Church of the Brethren-7037 Union Road-Clayton OH.  This church is approx. 3 miles west of Bernina Main Street.
