Talk Title: Stashed! Developing a Stash that Works with Your Quilting Style

Talk Description: If you have been a quilter for very long, there is a good chance that you have a stash of fabric somewhere in your sewing space. Over time many quilters start to see their stash as a source of guilt. I see my stash as a source of inspiration, and I want you to see yours that way too! We will identify and discuss quilting styles and how that relates to building a working palette of fabric. This is not a class that pressures you to get rid of fabric you love or offer dozens of projects to quickly use up your stash (you’ve seen lots of those!) This is about building a functional and inspiring collection of fabric that works with how you quilt!

Meet Cassandra

I love to create.  For me this takes many forms with this blog mostly focussing on my life as a fiber artist.  My mother taught me to sew starting around the age of three or four (the details are a bit fuzzy!)  I learned to quilt first, then I started sewing clothes, and quilted clothes.  After that I entered a career where I spent a lot of time sewing clothing as well as other things.  I have recently returned to the quilt world, and I am excited to share my adventures with you.

Why the not so dramatic life?  Almost my entire professional life has been spent in the theatre.  And no, I’m not an actress.  I am trained as a scenic and costume designer, and have also spent many years working in various technical roles behind the scenes.  These experiences inform my overall design aesthetic as well as helping me to develop skills which allow me to execute (almost) anything I can dream up.
