In the last two weeks, students have been quilting, sewing and knitting in the Sophie Studio, surrounded by snow and sub-zero temperatures. Ellen Graf’s “Latest, Greatest Quilt” class took place from January 6 – 10 and seven students worked on varied projects, from finishing by hand a quilt started more than twenty years ago, to designing a modern quilt. Two beginning students learned the basics of quilting using the nine-patch block.
The first half of this week was an Open Studio time, finishing quilts from previous classes or sewing.
Starting Thursday afternoon and running through Sunday, Sandy De Master and Mary Germain are here sharing their knitting expertise with eleven knitters. Projects include socks, sweaters, Latvian mittens and who-knows-what tucked in all the knitting bags and baskets under the tables.
We’ll resume our Sievers in Winter classes in early February with Connie Westbrook’s Handwoven Bags and Totes and Jeanette Biederman and Rich Prange teaching Independent Study: Splint-Woven Basketry. After that, our thoughts will turn to May through October class happenings!
