Program: Quilted Wearables with Sheila Green

 

Sheila Green gave us a fantastic presentation on quilted wearables.  

She discussed the history, the controversy, and fashion trends.  

She gave us tips, ideas, and inspiration for making our own quilted jackets, along with a stunning show of her makes (and others') with the help of volunteer models from our membership.

Watch this space for quilted wearable resources, including information about Sheila's August 13 workshop.

Scenes from the presentation:
