Friends, we are beyond thrilled to welcome the incredibly talented Carolyn Friedlander to Craft South this month for a fantastic weekend of quilting, designing, and learning! Carolyn specializes in modern quilt design, drawing her inspiration from elements of art, architecture, and the history of quilt making.
Carolyn's talents don't only lie in quilt-making - although I think we can all agree that this is an area where her artistry truly shines! She also designs beautiful fabrics, which are made to pair perfectly with her extensive line of quilting patterns. Carolyn is also a published author - her book Savor Each Stitch includes 8 different projects and focuses on designing quilts from start to finish the same way that Carolyn approaches her art.
Carolyn Friendlander's Quilting Weekend will be at Craft South May 26th & 27th. In this two day workshop, students will learn how to recreate that gorgeous free motion quilting that Carolyn is famous for. The weekend will also cover design strategy - both as a group and with one-on-one instruction from Carolyn - and students are encouraged to each bring a quilt top that can be used for this discussion. Students will then learn how to bring those designs to life, using techniques taught by Carolyn, and drawing inspiration from several finished examples that she will have on hand. The class setting for this workshop is especially wonderful, as all students will gain a varied perspective of strategy and design implementation. As a bonus, students can also expect 15% off all in-store purchases during the entire weekend, plus a goodie bag full of Carolyn's favorite tools and notions!
Do you see why we are so excited!? :)
We can't wait for Carolyn Friendlander's Quilting Weekend and hope you can join us for this event! Can't make the whole weekend but still want a little piece of inspiration? Join us on Thursday, May 25th for Carolyn's Trunk Show and Talk at Craft South (workshop attendees - this is included in the cost of your ticket!). Whatever event you are able to attend, this is a weekend that you do NOT want to miss!
