Ms Eastmond has been quilting for several decades, she has mastered a raft of skills: appliqué, embroidery, wool work, piecing, designing, free-motion quilting, mid-size machine quilting, hand-stitching, English PaperPiecing, modern quilting, and paper piecing. In other words, she has a multi-skill approach to quilts.  Ms Eastmond’s overall philosophy on teaching classes is this: students should go away with at least one new tip, or way of doing something. Some students may even have a finished project, if the chosen class is a mini-quilt or some other small quilt, and so for these reasons, you will see a lot of small quilts in her line-up. But generally, it’s most important that we quilters share some time together building our community, getting to know the other quilters in our guild, and enjoy the making. She is a generalist, and enjoys the process of creating with cloth. 9-14-19 Workshop Mini Crossroads Block 2nd half of the workshop is free motion quilting. There is an additional $11.00 kit fee for the class. This class will be taught at Renaissance Imagine Center, 44105 15th St West, Room 15 on the 4th floor. 
September Program - Elizabeth Eastmond

October “The Hat Parade” Friendship Circles please make a centerpiece to be raffled off. Yvonne Rodriguez and Dixie England are also making center pieces. We will still need a few extras to volunteer to make one. Please think about making a hat, a mug rug and, of course, bring a cup and saucer. There is so much talent in this group, I would love to see what you can do with this. Remember pinkies out. “Tata!”
