Show 2508: Sarah Ann Smith

Featuring: Sarah Ann Smith

Posts On: October 6, 2019

Trailer


Sarah Ann Smith, a TQS member from the very start, shares her story of discovering quilting while working in Bolivia, teaching herself using Quilter’s Newsletter magazines. Sarah Ann shows us how we can achieve realistic results for recreating photographs using a variety of techniques that can be done individually or layered in a collage effect. She ends the show by teaching how threadwork and the type of thread you use can blend, enhance or accentuate an area of your work.

Also in this show, Ricky demonstrates two techniques for sewing a perfect mitered border corner, one involving pressing a crease and the other using a ruler. He follows this up by offering tips for avoiding puffy or tapered borders and how you can use this same process to create a multiple border mitered corner.

Love the show! Especially the little round maze. My mother died young, and years later, I was told I was a case of arrested development. My blog is Lainy's Mouse in a Maze - a metaphor for my life, learning by trial and error.

Wonder episode, Sarah Ann I knew you would be great! Learned about working smarter, so will not be afraid go use paint from now on. I have followed you for an number of years now and you have encouraged me to try different ideas in my own quilting. Thank you.

You did GREAT Sarah! A true Maverick! ;-) I have so enjoyed watching you grow in your art over the years, and hopefully someday I'll be able to take one of your classes and see you again!

Wow! That was a lot of info in a short amount of time. Thank you Sarah Ann for a wonderful display and teaching techniques. I've been looking thru the Pellon web site and found that I can buy stuff in bulk from Overstock.com.! ! Who knew????
Crazy interesting! I would love to take a class from you some time Sarah but I'm a midwest girl and don't travel well anymore. Thank you all so much for a great show! PS didn't Fabric magic used to be called Texture Magic?

WOOOHOOO! Hi BrendaInTheBoro ....I'm so thrilled to see you here. One day I hope to get to your part of the world and meet you for tea! To Ricky, Alex and all the team at TQS..WOW....I am so thrilled and delighted with the show (especially that I didn't sound as nervous as I thought I was in the intro...my only error is that I met Paul in Guinea-Bissau in 1982, not '93, and started quilting circa 1987...nerves LOL!). Thank you for this opportunity, and I hope all of you watching enjoy it! THANKS!
