We’re doubly excited to announce our quilting legend for 2014 . . . because there are two of them! Join us as we visit the charming 1915 Craftsman bungalow that is home to renowned quiltmakers, teachers, authors, and twin sisters Roberta Horton and Mary Mashuta. Although they share many interests, each has her own workspace and unique approach to the art and craft of quiltmaking - and we get to sample both. First Mary reveals her newest passion - Sashiko by machine - demonstrating how to break down and adapt a complex hand-stitching design for machine stitching. Then Roberta shares her process for creating your own fabric album using cherished family photos, from choosing suitable images to transferring, sewing, and embellishing them. Two dynamic legends, tons of fabulous quilts, great techniques . . . what better way to wrap up another year of fun and learning with TQS?
