Upcoming Sherri Lynn Wood Workshop

The KMQG is hosting a workshop with artist/designer/quilter/author Sherri Lynn Wood on Sunday, July 9 from 1-7 p.m.

Get Your Wedge Curve On: "Get your wedge-curve, mod-mood, groove on in this improvisational quilt-making workshop. Participants will commit one step at a time, as they explore advanced approaches to improvised patchwork and composition, develop a personal/intuitive language of color, and learn ruler-free, wedge-curve, piecing techniques."

The workshop will be held at Westminster Presbyterian Church, located at 6500 Northshore Dr., Knoxville, TN. Cost is $90 for members and $110 for non-members. A few openings remain, so contact modknoxville@gmail.com ASAP to reserve your spot.
