QuQQuilt Making - Quilting Bee

1/9

From a place of connectedness
Where do textile art and community meet?

 

I cordially invite you to the QUILTING BEE - FREE WORK in the STUDIOWERKSTATT 31:
 


Mondays: 11am- 1pm.
 


In the QUILTING BEE - FREIES ARBEITEN we create new patchwork blocks from textiles that we have grown fond of. These can be pieces that we didn't want to dispose of despite moving, but don't really use and those with personal meaning, textiles that remind us of people, places and life events. We invent blocks, improvise in the process, or take our cue from handed-down templates like the friendship block. Everyone designs them according to their own interests and individual self-image. It can be embroidered and also appliqued. Printing, painting and dyeing of fabrics, embroidery and appliqué are possible. The emphasis is on individual improvisation and handwork: slow stitching.

The introduction to the use of needle and thread (thimble/nailer), cutter and scissors is accompanied by the presentation of the history of quilts and their social, artistic roots and contemporary examples.

 

The QUILTING BEE - FREE WORK meetings are not workshops in the strict sense. We meet to support and inspire each other. I provide my studio and some tools and machines, such as the newly acquired Pfaff Ambition, which can also embroider, iron, many Marti Michell patchwork stencils, gravure press, screen printing frame.

To cover my expenses, I only ask for a contribution of at least 5 Euros per coming, depending on your income situation I'm happy to ask for 10 Euros.

Your own project and ideas and
