November 8, 2018   -   Sylvia Pippen

Sylvia’s quilts combine hand applique, contemporary and traditional Sashiko.  She strives to create realistic appliqued flowers and use Sashiko to outline intricate foliage designs.  She has recently ventured into cyanotype and surface design to create blue and white images when exposed to the sun.  She has made the move to LaConner, WA, after having lived in Hawaii for many years.

Sylvia will tell us about her years in Hawaii and the beautiful Sashiko she learned there. She will describe the appliques that add such sparkle to Sashiko.

“Introduction to Sashiko"

1-day workshop - $60 members

Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embellishment using a running stitch of heavy white cotton thread on indigo fabric.  Learn how to easily transfer designs onto dark fabric, the best fabric and thread options for Sashiko, techniques for perfect stitch length, curves, and corners.  I will demonstrate my favorite applique methods: Apliquick and postage labels to pre-form applique shapes that can enhance Sashiko designs.  A brief history of Sashiko will be given and quilt samples on display.
