New from our Blog: March 01, 2016
Secret Garden Table Topper - Simply Color GREEN book

We decided it was time again for another project from the Simply Color books. And of course its GREEN. For the month of March, any product with GREEN (like the cover of the book) is 15% Off. So get ready for spring now!

We decided to do something a bit different with the project we chose, instead of making the full quilt, we took a quarter of the Secret Garden quilt and made a table topper instead.

This modified project is 36" squared. Original Quilt measures 72" squares finished...

Two Quilting Workshops with Elizabeth Hartman
March 17 - 20, 2016
-----
Fox & Hedgehog
1-day workshop (includes lunch) - $70
Thursday, March 17, 2016, 9-4 pm

Use your favorite fabrics to make these fun hedgehogs and fox faces! The foxes can be made with scraps, precut strips, fat eighths, or fat quarters. Use fancy fabrics like Liberty Lawn, brightly colored solids, or your favorite print fabric collection. The hedgehog pattern uses conventional patchwork techniques (no paper piecing or templates) and can be made using precut 1½" strips, precut 10" squares, or an assortment of fabric scraps. You can use 3 coordinating pieces of fabric to make each hedgehog (as I've done here) or use the same fabrics for all of the faces and bodies with a different colorful or print fabric for each hedgehog's spines. These hedgehogs and foxes will look adorable in whatever fabrics you use.
-----
Patchwork City
3-day workshop (includes lunches) - $210
Friday - Sunday, March 18 – 20, 2016, 9-4 pm

In this workshop, students will learn some of Elizabeth's favorite tips and tricks for fabric selection and precision piecing, as you make blocks from her new sampler book, Patchwork City. The blocks can be combined to make a small sampler, or they can become the start of one of the larger projects in the book.

Elizabeth Hartman is a quilter, pattern designer, and fan of color from Portland, Oregon. For her, quiltmaking is the perfect combination of creativity and technical challenge, all in the service of making a useful object. Being self-taught, she says that she did everything wrong at least five times before she figured out how to do it right. So, when she wrote her first book, she wrote the book that she wished she had when she was just beginning. That book, The Practical Guide to Patchwork, was published in 2010 and won the Next Generation Indie Book Award (How-To Category) in 2011.

At the end of 2009, Elizabeth quit her day job to pursue quilting full time. Since then, she has written two more books, Modern Patchwork (2012) and Patchwork City (2014). Her work has also been featured in a variety of other books, publications, and media, including: Stitch, Quilt Scene, Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting, Patchwork Tsushin, and Quilting Arts TV. In 2012, Elizabeth recorded two video classes for Craftsy.com, Inspired Modern Quilts and Creative Quilt Backs. Somewhere in there she also founded the Portland Modern Quilt Guild and was a Board Member of the national Modern Quilt Guild for four years. She started selling wholesale print patterns in 2014, and her first print fabric collection for Robert Kaufman, Rhoda Ruth, shipped out last fall, and was followed by her new line, Pacific.

"Listen"
Frequently I find myself bringing my other life; business woman, manager, the organized results driven list making career potential person into the studio. She needs to stay outside. She is not a helper. As a poet and artist I am evolving toward a model of simply listening. Answers to my studio problems come in the night, answers to my personal problems come through poetry and song, a walk in nature clears the head.
And so this body of work has come into being. Softly, on little cat feet. First the days of creating image on fabric with dye and discharge and rust and mono-printing. Then the contemplative stage of viewing and dreaming and seeing visions. Words and sequences emerge and are matched with image or drive image. Finally the procrastination before stitching adds the final dimension.
And then the awe and appreciation of what came to be.
I invite you to explore this world of imagination with me.
Namaste.
--Constance Waisanen 2016

Artful Log Cabins Quilt Workshop with Katie Pasquini Masopust

5-day workshop (includes lunches) $485
Monday - Friday, March 28 – April 1, 2016; 9-4 pm

The log cabin block is so very versatile, we will use that as the basis for creating linear abstract art quilts. Start with a painting or photograph, crop that to a strong personal composition, overlay a grid, this can be an even grid, an uneven grid, curved or random grid, this linear drawing is laid over the inspiration photo or painting to become the map. Then log cabins made up of the colors found in each unit of the grid will be constructed and then put together to make the quilt. Emphasis on composition, variety, color, value and visual pathways.

------
For nearly 30 years Katie Pasquini Masopust has produced high quality contemporary art quilts that have been coveted and collected by a broad range of admirers. From her early beginnings as a painter dabbling in traditional quilt making, her work has evolved from structured Mandalas and mind-blowing dimensional pieces to very painterly landscapes and abstracts executed with the finest fabrics and most creative stitching techniques.

Katie's easy, energetic manner has made her a very popular teacher and lecturer. When not in residence at her studio in Santa Fe, she travels the world presenting her contemporary quilting theories and techniques to classes; not only in North America, but in Europe, the Far East, Australia and New Zealand. Awards and accolades have been numerous for Katie, culminating with her 2005 induction into a very select group of art quilt professionals who have earned the Silver Star Award presented by Houston Quilt Festival.

A prolific author, Katie shares her enthusiasm for the art of creative quilting through her numerous books, her many classes, and now as a member of the Experius Academy Advisory Council as they work to develop the art mission for the new Gateway Canyons Resort in Colorado - a destination resort for quilting enthusiasts and fiber artists: also host of Katie's Alegre Retreats.

4th Friday Art Stroll in Sisters - Twigs Gallery Opening featuring fiber art pieces by Julia Jeans and Sharon Carvalho - Friday, January 22, 4-7pm
311/331 W. Cascade Avenue, Sisters, Oregon  541-549-6061

     Sharon Carvalho and Julia Jeans met a couple of years ago in a class at the Stitchin’ Post. During conversations, they discovered they both wanted to explore and experiment with surface design techniques and in late 2013 began getting together regularly—play dates they called them—to see which techniques fit their individual aesthetic. They would frequently alternate locations—Sisters or Bend—during which time they explored techniques such as fabric dyeing, screen printing, stamp carving, printmaking, digital design, marbling, thermofax, soy wax resist, and photography. During the get-togethers, they exchanged ideas, products, fabric, and know-how.
     Many of the quilts in the show these two are calling “Explorations!” are a direct result of these get-togethers and experiences.

Traditional Quilt Shops are a dime a dozen. What this shop offers is above and beyond. The unique selection of fabrics (many of which I have never seen before) is awesome. The fact that there are "gift" items also available and needlework supplies (some very yummy yarns) makes it so much more than the "traditional quilt shop". I loved every minute spent in there and wish I lived closer so I could frequent this lovely shop....not to mention the entire town.

I first stepped foot into Stitchin' Post around 2000 and have yet to be disappointed. From my being a neophyte quilter to a now dedicated fabric artist, Stitchin' Post has never failed to supply with with exciting ideas, great local and international teachers and high quality designer fabrics. They will help you step well out of your comfort zone if you'd like...and isn't that what it's all about?
Response from the owner - 6 months ago
Than ks, Jody! We're so glad you're enjoying yourself--see you soon!

Was very disappointed with the attitude and lack of service from the ladies working in the shop. Asked a question of one employee and she pointed vaguely to an area on the other side of the shop. When an other employee was approached with a question she just chewed her gum and acted like we were an inconvenience. Not a warm welcoming feeling. Needless to say we walked out without making a purchase.
Response from the owner - 8 months ago
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I printed it out and gave it to Jean, and she talked to the girls about it. We're sorry that you did not have a good experience with us, and hope you will give us another chance to make it right for you.

Over rated, more like a gift shop than a traditional quilt store. With Ms. Wells as a owner I expected to see a huge store with lots of selection, not the case. I may have just visited on a off day but I felt like I was not welcome. The staff never offered to help and I was the only one in the store.

Stopped by this year after the quilt show. I didn't remember Jean's store being so small, the BJ Shop in Bend must be 3 times bigger and frankly had a much better vibe.
