Alexia will be teaching students all about working with different fabrics in quilts. Some of the most inspiring modern quilts of decades past have used every fabric available at the time. She will be taking that inspiration and teaching students how to work with the plethora of fabrics available to the modern stitcher today. They will be expanding their knowledge of how to handle a variety of fabrics such as voile, lawn, velveteen, silk, denim, chambray, and more. Students will create sample quilt blocks using a variety of fabrics learning special tips and techniques for each fabric along the way.
