Jean Wells
$60
Fri & Sat, February 10 & 11 9:30-3:00

The quilts from Gee's Bend have fascinated me since I first saw them. They are the inspiration for this workshop. Working intuitively is a fun approach to quilt design and can produce astounding results. In this workshop we will explore design options as well as techniques with some exercises and then participate in a discussion on color. The rest of the time will be spent on your own exploration into working "Outside the Lines". Your challenge will be to work in a color palette new to you and to explore design. Refer to my books Journey to Inspired Art Quilting and Intuitive Color and Design for ideas.

Sometimes We Cancel a Class….
On occasion we will cancel a class due to insufficient enrollment. We make that decision ten (10) days before the scheduled class.

Winter Weather Alert!
Weather can be unpredictable here in Central Oregon. When winter weather affects driving conditions, our priority is safety! Please note that if the Sisters School District is closed due to weather conditions, we will also cancel class that day. We will reschedule the class for another day, based on classroom and instructor availability.

A Friendly Reminder For A Healthy Classroom
If you have a cold, flu symptoms, or a lingering cough, please be considerate of fellow classmates and the instructor by staying home and taking care of yourself. Call the store in advance to let us know you are not feeling well, and we will do what we can to accommodate your illness.
Along the same lines, we have many students who are sensitive to perfumes and scented lotions; please avoid wearing such products to class.
Thank you!
