Melody Crust Workshops

Simple Surfaces and Bead Candy
Saturday, January 12 & Sunday, January 13, 2008

Melody Crust is a celebrated fabric artist and instructor, renowned for her quilting. Her work has been shown in any number of juried shows and exhibitions, gathering awards as they go, and is coveted by private collectors around the world. She has traveled to virtually every part of the country, bringing her natural teaching ability and contagious enthusiasm to quilters everywhere. Her extremely popular lectures and workshops are always well received -- students often return again and again for another helping of her expertise!

Her book, Quilt Toppings: Fun and Fanciful Embellishment Techniques, taps into the strong, emerging trend toward embellishment of quilt surfaces. Paint, foil, paint sticks, thread, crayons, buttons, ribbons, and beads are all readily available, fun, easy and non-messy ways to add that final design element to traditional and non-traditional quilts.

Melody will lecture at our January meeting, Monday morning, January 14, 2008 with the presentation "Quilt Toppings". She will teach two 1-day workshops Saturday, January 12, 2008 and Sunday, January, 13, 2008 at Sellwood Methodist Church, corner of S.E. 15th and Tacoma.
