October 18, 2017 – 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

Instructor: Susan Edmondson

Susan Edmonson is an award winning quilt maker who started this journey in 1981 and today continues to wow her audiences with her unique artistry. She has designed quilt patterns and kits for two national stores as well as her own pattern line.

Her specialties have been folk art, crazy quilted purses, wall quilts, and “flower doodles.” Fabric collage books and mini art quilts are among her newest creations using mixed media techniques. All of her work is lavished with beading and embroidery. She loves working with vintage style fabrics and colors. The patterns she designs have evolved from original pieces inspired from vintage quilt designs and nature that showcase her own unique style.

During this workshop she will be teaching how to make a very nice embellished necklace made from fabric and found objects–buttons, beads–and embellished with embroidery. “This Artful Collar Necklace is so much fun to make, and even more fun to wear! The collar is assembled very much like any other crazy quilt block would be.” The necklace will be embellished, embroidered and beaded, so look through your tiny treasures and cherished buttons to add to your creation.
