Special Sewing Techniques
About the Author
SewCalGal recommends this book to also be an excellent resource for Quilt Guilds that may want to base host challenges around Quiltmaking Essential skills. The possibilities are endless, plus it could be a great way for quilt guild members to improve their skills. For example, consider hosting a challenge where members create the same small lap quilt “top” and each member that enters the challenge shares:
– insights from the book on an area of quilting that they improved,
– talks about how they improved their pressing skills, showing the “back” of their quilt top.
Or consider having a special workshop where members use the insights in this book to make a complex block where all blocks are put together for a charity or fundraiser quilt. Think of the benefits of all the members stitching blocks “perfectly pieced”. Seriously, this could be a great workshop for a guild and this book could be a great tool to use to get guild members to work on their precision piecing skills.
Of course, a guild could also host Donna Lynn Thomas to come to their guild for a presentation and/or workshop!
