Quilting with Kate Hibbard (Online Workshop)
September 12, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until December 5, 2020
Teaching Artist Kate Hibbard says, “Hi, everyone! Waving from Rhode Island! My name is Kate and I live on an island in RI with my dogs and cats. I love sewing and quilting, and I am glad we’ve figured out a way to continue quilting together this fall! I sew on my Grandmother’s 1928 Singer sewing machine, and I’ll be using that when we meet via Zoom.”
Kate will be assisted by Mina Brailey Staempfli who lives in England and has been a camp counselor at Clapping Hands Farm for the past few years!
This fall, we will start with the Rail Fence quilt block. The block itself is quite easy to make using strips of fabric. The beauty of this simple block is it offers so many design possibilities! Join us to make a pillow, pillow case, lap quilt, bed quilt, wall hanging, pot holder…or something else! Campers are invited to sew by hand, by machine or a combination of both. We’ll also begin to explore different quilting techniques (such as quilt-as-you-go or big stitch quilting) that can be completed with a sewing machine or by hand (or using a combination of the two). Kate Hibbard and Mina Brailey Staempfli are excited to continue the Clapping Hands Farm quilting studio with you this fall!
We at the Chatham Arts Council are delighted to provide the only online calendar exclusively dedicated to Chatham County arts events–performing, literary, and visual arts. Get out there and get inspired!
