This trunk-show and lecture demonstrates that common quilting techniques can be incorporated in innovative ways to make wearable art garments come alive.  Quilters will find themselves thinking “I can do that!” when they see garments embellished with techniques they have likely used for years.  Many quilters will be inspired to try their hand at garment construction when they envision their own creations using familiar techniques in new ways.  Some of the types of techniques demonstrated are:

  • Stitching Embellishment
  • Piecing
  • Beading
  • Applique
  • Painting and Dying Fabrics
  • Machine Embroidery
