CANCELLED
March 18, 2020 – The Wonderfill World of Thread! Joanne Flamand
Choosing threads for your projects can create more questions than you may have answers! Joanne will provide some understanding and clarity to your thread knowledge to assist you in your future projects, from machine or hand piecing, machine or hand quilting, thread embellishment, and machine embroidery work. Choosing the right thread from your very first stitch will affect the result of your finished project.
 
CANCELLED
April 15: Edmonton Modern Guild - Wendy Cooper
Presentation details coming soon


CANCELLED
Saturday, April 25, 2020 – EDUCATION WORKSHOP, Scrappy Play Time with Cathy Tomm

Venue: TBA
$50/person, includes lunch – Registration commences at March Guild Meeting

Come join me to play with your pretty scraps. Making fabric out of nothing! I will show you how I cut, sort and store my scraps in a rainbow of colour. I will then show you how I have used my tiny bits of fabric. You will build fabric using your precious scraps with a few poverty piecing techniques shown. Our larger blocks will be based on traditional quilt blocks, but we will have used poverty piecing to add greater interest and texture. Students can choose the Bouncy Ball block or a Friendship Star block (some students may have time for both blocks).

 

 

Virtual Meeting

20 May 2020 - Untangle Those Threads! Joanne Flamand

Join us for our virtual guild meeting via Zoom and enjoy Joanne’s special presentation. Joanne will take us through the tangled mess of thread and educate or remind us all about this important notion. 

Our fellow guild member, Joanne Flamand describes herself as a "maker" ever since she can remember. A long history of sewing,knitting and crafting led to a longarm quilting career when she purchased her first longarm quilting machine, the APQS Millie in 2012. 

Nearly three years ago she became the Owner and Creative Director of "SPOOLS: The Workshop" in Leduc, AB. SPOOLS provides longarm quilting services, longarm quilting classes, specialized computer classes, APQS Machine Sales and a variety of fun quilting and sewing classes. Joanne has taught across Canada and at Quilt Market, representing both Wonderfil Specialty Threads and APQS Canada. As a Wonderfil Thread Educator, she has provided content and samples for their blog, longarm newsletter, and helped customers with questions on threads at quilt and trade shows. “Choosing threads for your projects can create more questions than you may have answers! I hope to provide some understanding and clarity to your thread knowledge to assist you in your future projects, from machine or hand piecing, machine or hand quilting, thread embellishment, and machine embroidery work. Choosing the right thread from your very first stitch will affect the result of your finished project.”
