SVP Education Event: Quilt Therapy with Christine Harlan and the Epic 2!
The 5th Saturday falls on Leap Day this year - so we're going to do something a little different!
Friday, February 28, 2020 from 9:00 am til 5:00 pm
Join us and our special quest, SVP Elite Educator Christine Harlan, for a fun filled and inspiring day.
We will be exploring the new Epic 2 with hands-on experience making a table runner project.You will be exploring making piping with the narrow piping foot, how to work with curves with an applique quilting technique, exclusive stitches and the use of the NEW Design placement app. Christine will also introduce Premier Plus 2 Ultra Software, the NEW ECQ Software and phone Apps that work so well with the Epic 2.
Christine has over 30 years of experience as an educator, designer and fiber artist. Her history in the industry spans from garment construction, pattern design and draping to fabric manipulation, felting, silk fusion and hand embroidery. She teaches many techniques which include: modern quilting, landscapes, collage, grid quilting, applique, hand and machine embroidery, dry and wet felting, heirloom, leather work, free motion thread sketching, thread painting, mixed media fiber art and jewelry design. She loves to pass along her trade tips while sharing samples and helping you explore new techniques. Christine makes sure to cover everyone's interests and is eager to answer your questions.
These events fill up fast. Seating is limited, so, if you'd like an opportunity to meet Christine
and learn from her while she teaches you how easy it is to create a project or two at our
upcoming event, call, email or stop in the store to register today.
