Attention: Precision-Impaired Quilters! Can't match points? Hate to measure?
You can make gorgeous quilts anyway! Lectures & Workshops by Amy Stewart Winsor

Amy Stewart Winsor can't match corners and hates to do math, so she has mastered many techniques that don't require precision. Some of her favorite techniques include fusible applique, freeform curved piecing, haphazard piecing, crazy quilting, crooked log cabin, and embellishing. This Cary, North Carolina quilt artist teaches nationally, and enthusiastically encourages her students to find the techniques they enjoy most, and to spend their quilting time frolicking in the fabric instead of stressing out.

Please look for her classes and lectures at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas, November 3-6, 2004.

See Amy’s quilts, together with quilts by Mickey Depre, in their two-person exhibit, “On the Bright Side: Art Quilts by Mickey Depre and Amy Stewart Winsor”, to be shown at Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza in Fort Washington, PA, Sept. 16-19, 2004 and at Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara, CA, Oct. 14-17, 2004. Additional venues to be announced.

Amy writes a free monthly email newsletter which covers upcoming quilting events in the Raleigh, Cary, Durham, and Chapel Hill, North Carolina area.
