Color Confidence for Quilters

I am a Certified Instructor in Color Confidence for Quilters.  Developed by Shannon Brinkley, Color Confidence helps quilters learn the science of color and develop their personal intuition for selecting fabrics. 

 

Shops and Guilds:  I offer a one-hour "Introduction to Color Confidence" program as well as a full Color Confidence workshop, both available in person or via Zoom. In the Color Confidence Program, we study the characteristics of color, learn how to use a color wheel, and discuss working with prints so that quilters can confidently pull fabric palettes that create beautiful quilts. In the Color Confidence Workshop, we dig deeper into the characteristics of color including how to incorporate neutrals. Participants engage in hands-on exercises to help train their eye to see subtle differences in colors. Workshops can be tailored to meet the needs and interests of your group, and I can work with you to schedule a longer or shorter workshop based on your schedule.

Sew-Alongs

Sew-Alongs are classes for any level quilter, but I use easy techniques and processes so beginners won't be overwhelmed.  In July, I'm leading "Calico Cats."  You'll need to grab four fat quarters - for the four cats- and a good half yard of background fabric.  Class will be on Zoom, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, July 18, 20 and 22.  I'll take you through the whole process, step by step - simply and serenely.   You’ll learn all the nitty-gritty details to sew beautiful quilt tops and enjoy the process, too!  You do not need to purchase the pattern.

Stash Savvy

Do you have a lot of fabric in your stash?  Can you just grab what you need and start sewing?  Stash Savvy is a system to organize your fabric so you can do just that!  You will learn how to arrange your fabric in a way that you can see exactly what you have.  And it will be ready to cut and sew.
