Genesee Valley QuiltFest - Genesee Valley Quilt Club 2016 Lectures

LECTURES

Quilts of Upstate New York by Kathryn Greenwold, teacher, lector, quilt appraiser, designer, judge and author. Kathryn   will   provide   a   discussion   of   the   quilts   made   in   New   York   State   over   the   last   200   years.   Unique regional   patterns,   quilting   styles,   and   trends   are   included.   The   lecture   is   accompanied   by   a   trunk   showing of   Kathryn's   collection   of   New   York   State   quilts   -   both   old   and   new.   Participants   are   always   encouraged   to bring in their quilts that were or may have been made in New York State as well. The Artist in You by Susan Brubaker Knapp, fiber artist, designer, author and teacher. A one-hour digital slide show and trunk show. I   describe   my   personal   journey   from   that   of   a   traditional   quilter   to   an   artist   who   makes   both   traditional quilts   and   art   quilts.   I   start   with   a   digital   slideshow,   which   shows   my   work   and   some   of   the   techniques   I use.   Then   I   do   a   trunk   show   and   a   question-and-answer   session.   The   focus   is   on   ways   for   traditional quilters   to   become   more   creative   by   embracing   their   own   “inner   artist.”   It   is   my   goal   to   inspire   and encourage   quilters   to   try   making   an   art   quilt   for   several   reasons:   to   challenge   themselves,   to   unleash   their innate   creativity,   to   learn   new   techniques,   to   discover   things   about   themselves   through   art,   and   to   share their view of the world with others. Confidently Shop for A Longarm by Joyce Blowers, longarm business owner, longarm quilter, longarm and quilting teacher, author. Shopping   for   a   longarm   quilting   system   can   be   overwhelming,   especially   when   thinking   about   what   you might   spend.      In   this   non-brand   specific   lecture,   Joyce   will   talk   about   machine   and   frame   options,   discuss how   to   evaluate   what   is   important   and   necessary,   and   how   to   avoid   the   pitfalls   of   making   a   wrong decision.      She   will   walk   you   through   the   steps   you   need   to   take   to   confidently   make   a   decision   based   on what   you   need   now   and   as   you   grow   as   a   longarm   quilter.      You   will   leave   the   lecture   with   a   worksheet   that is useful in making the right longarm decision for you.  Questions are welcome. Point, Click, Quilt! by Susan Brubaker Knapp, fiber artist, designer, author and teacher. A   one-hour   digital   slide   show   and   trunk   show   based   on   my   book,   Point,   Click,   Quilt!   This   lecture   focuses on   tips   for   taking   better   photographs,   and   then   turning   them   into   art   quilts.   This   is   an   inspirational   and detailed   look   at   my   process:   tracing   the   photo;   enlarging   the   line   drawing;   using   it   to   trace   the   fused appliqué   pieces   for   the   quilt;   creating   a   positioning   overlay;   and   then   cutting,   positioning   and   fusing   the pieces   before   thread   sketching   and   quilting.   A   trunk   show   of   pieces   from   the   slideshow   and   additional work follows, and questions are welcome. For   the   Love   of   Scraps:   small   quilts,   BIG   impact   by   Judy   Holmes   Reed ,   teacher, quilter, pattern designer, sample maker. A   trunk   show   starting   with   the   first   quilt   she   made   for   her   toddler   son   almost   40   years   ago,   Judy   will   show and   talk   about   a   variety   of   the   small   quilts   she   has   made.   Most   are   table   toppers,   pillow   covers,   wall hangings   and   table   runners.   Many   are   made   from   fat   quarters   and   lots   use   scraps   left   from   these   projects. She   says   she   has   never   met   a   scrap   she   could   throw   away.   Techniques   include   traditional   piecing,   English paper piecing, foundation paper piecing and some applique.  Many of her small quilts are hand quilted.
