How to Work with Wool with Tami Pfeil and Kim Kleine
(Show 1107) "Quilting cousins" (and accomplished fiber artists) Tami Pfeil and Kim Kleine have always been fascinated with "repurposing," and have carried their inclination to rescue and reuse salvaged materials—particularly wool—into their quiltmaking. From our location at the Blue Rain Gallery in Santa Fe, NM, Tami reviews the stabilizers, threads, and stitch length recommended for working with felted wool, and Kim offers a variety of creative ideas for combining wool with traditional quilting fabrics. (You won't want to miss our special models, Lilo and Elena!) As an added bonus, Ricky introduces Shockwave, a dynamic pattern based on a 3" paper-pieced Kaleidoscope block.
