Paula Nadelstern SIXTY THIRTY©: A Kaleidoscope Class

May 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm | $199

Join world-famous quilter Paula Nadelstern for her signature workshop!

Explore the possibilities offered by complex textiles while demystifying the nature of symmetry. You will learn to draft perfect angles and sew dissimilar angles together. This class is extremely satisfying and engaging, culminating in the creation of a unique and fabulous kaleidoscope block. Often effects more wonderful than you imagine occur, making you both the one who makes the magic and the one who is surprised.

Teacher: Paula Nadelstern
Level: Advanced beginner to advanced. Must know how to rotary cut and use a sewing machine.

This class meets on Tuesday, May 15th 10am-6pm with a lunch break.

Required supplies to bring with you (all supplies are available for purchase at Gotham Quilts):
– Visi-Grid see-thru plastic template material with an 8 to the inch grid with darker blue lines denoting inch lines.
– Extra fine-point permanent marker. Paula’s preferred type (Multimark S/Faber Castell Fine point) is hard to find and will be for sale in the classrom.
– Pen to mark dark fabric. Paula’s preferred type (Uniball Silver Gel Pen) is hard to find and will be for sale in the classrom.
– Sharp fabric scissors
– Template scissor (consider OLFA Multi Purpose 5″ with serrated edge)
– Sharp pencil with erasers
– Set-up for rotary cutting, including a small rotary cutter, ruler and mat. OPTIONAL: Rotating mat
– General sewing supplies including fine pins and seam ripper
– A few ziplock baggies to hold templates
– FABRIC: 1 yard each of two different multi-colored, bilaterally symmetrical fabrics with 8 repeats. A motif with bilateral symmetry can be divided into identical halves by a line passing through the center. A fabric printed with 16 colors gets better results than one with fewer like five colors. The two fabrics should be different patterns, not necessarily matchy-matchy but work well together.

Depending on the repeat size, this will be ample fabric for 3 to 4 blocks, which is sufficient for a 1-day class.

Sewing machines, neutral thread, irons, and design walls are provided in the classroom.
