Overlapping Circle Play
Monday, October 9 -- Wednesday October 11, 2006
If you would love to create quilts with dimension, Reynola Pakusich's Overlapping Circle Play class is for you. Reynola is a 3rd generation member from a family of quilters who settled in Eastern Washington and Idaho. She began quilting seriously 25 years ago and has been teaching for quilt shops and quilt groups for about 20 years. She is the author of the book Circle Play as well as numerous articles and has had many photos of her quilts published in books and magazines such as Judy Hopkins' Design Your Own Quilts and American Quilter's Winter 2000 issue. Residing in Bellingham, Washington, she is an active member of several Northwest Washington quilt/study groups and continues to take workshops, attend lectures, and experiment with the latest techniques to keep herself on the cutting edge of the craft.
Reynola will lecture at our October meeting, Monday night, October 9, 2006, with a presentation entitled "Ways to use ethnic (Japanese, African and Indonesian) and hand-designed fabric in quilts". She will teach a 3-day workshop, October 9, 10 and 11 at Sellwood Methodist Church, corner of S.E. 15th and Tacoma.
"Overlapping Circle Play" (3 full days),
Using the teacher's class-handout pattern, enjoy developing the interplay of fabrics to create circles that appear to overlap. With Reynola's guidance some parts of your circle will appear to lap behind while others will appear to lap in front of the next circle. Come and enjoy seeing and learning control of these circles. Ability to machine-piece gentle curves or willingness to learn is suggested for this class. This class is for an intermediate skill level quilter.
Deposits of $60 are required for registration; the balance is due October 1. NWQ menbers will be given preference for registration until after our regular meeting on Monday, September 11, 2006; after that, reservations will be filled in the order received for both members and non-members. Refunds will be given only for cancellations before September 18 or if your spot can be filled ($10 cancellation fee). If, at the end of the September 11 meeting, we have more reservations than we have places in the class, we will hold a lottery among those applications to decide placement in the class and on a waiting list.
