January Program - Mary Tabar "Working Quilts and Art"
Mary Wood Tabar was born in Hannibal, Missouri where her mother was employed and trained by Singer Sewing Machine Company. Since the age of four she has been working with sewing machines. By six years of age she was doing crewel embroidery and other hand sewing projects. Raised with Midwest working ethics and family values, these qualities helped to foster appreciation, patience and a simple approach to life.
She graduated from Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology and a minor in Graphic Arts, and later received her Teaching Credential from California State University at San Marcos. She has had a variety of sewing experiences from making Madame Alexander antique doll clothes in New York City to making Renaissance costumes in San Diego for people such as Mick Fleetwood. She lives in San Diego with her husband and two daughters.
In this workshop students will learn the design of Notan. They will cut, flip and fuse appliqué squares for machine appliqué. After learning this new technique, students will want to make several of these fast and fun quilts. Students will have the option to make one of Hearts, Stars or Bells and Trees. Freeform border curves are taught in class. Contact Carolyn Lundie for the supply list. This class is nearly full. Please assure your place in the class by contacting Carolyn Lundie or Kathy Greene early. The workshop will be held at Trinity Community Church, 45361 N. Trevor, Lancaster, from 9:00 am to about 3:00 pm on January 13.
Meet the Teacher with Mary Tabar will be at Cali Café (formerly Camille’s) at 44140 20th St. West, Lancaster, at 5:00 pm prior to the general meeting on Jan. 11th. We hope to see you there!
