The Connecting Threads

Our world moves very fast.  This retreat-like workshop focuses on slowing down and relishing in process rather than product.  Supplies needed are minimal and no machine is necessary.  So grab a bag of fabric scraps and your favorite hand sewing tools, and jump on board.  This is not a technique workshop where you learn how to hand stitch.  The focus is on using the stitch line as mark making on cloth.  Part of the workshop content will be studying the Gee’s Bend Quilters, along with Boro and Kantha stitching practices.  Students will explore personal mark making preferences along with the power of parallel play in groups.
