Crazy Qulting Class with Denise Seay

Crazy quilting that’s not so crazy. This class will cover crazy quilting following some basic design rules. We’ll experiment with applique and a few embroidery stitches to produce a small art piece. This is a handwork workshop, but techniques can be accomplished by machine.

Fabric and supplies will be provided by the teacher, but attendees can bring their own fabric (cotton, silk, synthetics, any fabric) and supplies (buttons, trims, embroidery floss, needles, small scissors, portable light, etc.). Great workshop to experiment with crazy quilting and handwork. Lots of tips and tricks will be shared. Class size is limited to 10.

Date: Saturday, July 20
Time: 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
Cost per person: $60 for members/$65 for non-members

Saturday, August 17, 2019    “A Celebration of Appalachian Heritage” in Franklin, NC.

Our mission is to preserve and educate about the rich heritage of Franklin, NC and Macon County.

Co-sponsored by the Folk Heritage Association of Macon County and the Cowee School Arts & Heritage Center.

The Franklin Area Folk Festival features living exhibits and demonstrations to allow visitors to experience what mountain life was like way back when. These folks learned at their parents’ knee woodcarving, moonshinin’, basket making, weaving and spinning, and all the many other heritage skills they’ll be demonstrating. There will also be a full schedule of old time and mountain music with plenty of good food to eat.
