We’re starting 2015 off like last year with below-zero temperatures, but the sewing machines are warmed up this week in a 4-day quilting class taught by Ellen Graf.

Tucked warmly inside the office at Sievers during these winter days, we continue to work on our 2014 season. We will welcome three new instructors this year, Julie Lambert (Machine Quilting), John Mullarkey (Tablet Weaving) and Kay Rashka (Etched Metalwork Jewelry). All three come recommended by both existing Sievers instructors and students and we’ve already had the pleasure of meeting John when he visited here for an afternoon last summer. Julie Lambert started quilting in 1985 and began machine quilting three years later. Now it is her specialty and favorite part of making a quilt. Her quilts have been juried into national shows and received awards along the way including Best Machine Quilting. Julie lives in Erlanger, KY and you can visit her and her quilts at www.julieylambert.com.
