Debbie Jeske Workshop

Debbie Jeske from A Quilter's Table

Debbie Jeske from A Quilter's Table will be teaching "Everyday Improv" workshop on April 28.  Register by April 1 to receive the Early Bird Discount $50.  After April 1, the cost will be $70.

You can register online through Eventbrite (with a $4.54 convenience fee),  pay through the @CASH app or mail us a check to PO Box 6475 McKinney, Texas 75071

The workshop will be from 10 am to 4 pm and will hosted at McKinney's Fire Station 7 located at 861 S. Independence Pkwy.  (this was the location of our July meeting last year).  The workshop will not break for lunch, everyone is asked to bring snacks to share.   Here is a list of what you need to pack.  


SUPPLY LIST
• Sewing machine & manual
• Basic sewing supplies, including thread and bobbins
• 1/4” machine sewing foot
• Personal rotary cutting mat (12” x 18” or larger recommended)
• Rotary cutter
• Selection of acrylic rulers (3” x 18” is a good option plus any of your favorites)
• 12-18 quarter-yard cuts, fat quarters, or approximate equivalent
Debbie suggests solids. A mix of solids with a range of contrasting values is ideal. Large scraps would be suitable and even desirable for some techniques. If solids are not your preference or you’d like to mix them with prints, choose prints that read as solids. Choose 3-5 colors minimum, yet more are certainly welcome. Your palette for the day can be as limited or as broad as you wish.  Please note workshop will concentrate on technique rather than a completed project.
