    Improvise! Creating, Quilting and Living Courageously with Sherri Lynn Wood

    NOTE: We are meeting on the third Thursday in April, 2020.

    Improvisation is at the heart of living creatively. Music, dance, theater, drawing, cooking, conversation, play, child rearing, and even science benefit from the flexibility of mind that improvisational process engenders. Leave with mind tools, tips and a fresh perspective on how to apply improv skills learned in life to your patchwork – and vice versa!

    Doors open at 6:20 and the meeting begins at 6:50. 

    ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

    Modern quilters probably all know Sherri's name and her teaching methods and theory about improv quilts. She was the featured instructor at QuiltCon in 2019. Cindy, ACQ's VP Programs 2020, saw her tape The Quilt Show and learned of her healing social work practices—this makes her work and improv practices even more meaningful. Those who get into her 2-day workshop will be very lucky.

    ACQ Virtual Workshop: Wedge Curve Improv Workshop with Sherri Lynn Wood

    Get Your Curve on . . . Online.

    Commit one step at a time, as you explore improv process and composition. Learn ruler-free, wedge-curve, and bias-strip piecing on the curve improv techniques.

    Our Wedge Curve Improv Workshop with Sherri Lynn Wood is going through its own improvisation. Sherri is excited to partner with ACQ to host her first live-stream online workshop. Registered participants will receive access to a resource page on Sherri's website with with everything they need to know to access the online workshop.

    During the first three hours of the workshop each day, you will be able to brainstorm and interact with Sherri as she demonstrates template-free curve piecing techniques and the improvisational process. There will be another optional two hours of free sewing each day if you want to stay online and interact directly with Sherri and other students as you sew.

    Plus you'll have full access to your fabric stash instead of wishing you'd brought it with you. Following the workshop all participants will be able to access a recording of the live-stream sewing demos for an additional two weeks in case you missed something or want a replay.

    Invite Sherri into your sewing space and spend two days with her and ACQ on April 17-18.

    Sherri Lynn Wood has been improvising quilts as a creative life practice for 30 years, and is considered a master at her craft. Her best selling publication The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters: A Guide to Creating, Quilting & Living Courageously (Abrams, 2015) provides scores, or frameworks, for flexible patterns and creative exploration, along with practical instruction in stitching techniques and color theory.

    This year's challenge is to be inspired from a photo (shown above.) Use any element or elements from the photograph including the image, colors, shapes or something in the photo that inspires you when designing your entry. Write two sentences explaining what inspired you and submit it with your final project.

    • We encourage you to pay the $5 registration fee online by logging in to the site and clicking the register button on this page. You may pay with cash or check at an upcoming guild meeting. Registrations are due by end of day May 14, 2020. 

    • The quilt will be maximum size of 20” x 20” finished in any technique—but it needs to be a quilt. This is defined as three layers (top, batting, and backing.) It can be bound any way you wish. Your quilt must have a 4” hanging sleeve and a label clearly identifying the maker.

    • Finished quilts should be turned in at the July 9, 2020 guild meeting by 6:00 pm. Members and guests at the meeting will vote on their favorite. There will be 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place ribbons. The quilts will be returned at the end of the meeting or you may contact Carole Fronk to make arrangements.
