Visiting ELIQG in November
We are excited to welcome Diana Reinhardt Annis from Norton Massachusetts (recommended to us by Jackie Kunkel) to our guild this November. She will be sharing her expertise in machine quilting and interesting borders finishes for quilts with us during her visit.
Diana picked up a McCalls Magazine in 1976 and her first quilt was born. A doll quilt for her new baby sister. She took time off to raise her family but she never let the quilting bug go. She has been truly absorbed for the last 15 years. Her work has taken her all over the country, in two books and several magazines and even a calendar. She is associated with the Machine Quilters Exposition (MQX) and enjoys learning from the best the quilting world has to offer. Her latest endeavor has been studying appraisal. A goal she hopes to accomplish in 3 years. When she is not quilting she is in her gardens with her 10 chickens.
Join us for Diana’s trunk show on machine quilting at Southold Rec Center, Friday, November 7, 7:00 P.M.
Two workshops will be offered by Diana at Riverhead Library:
November 7, Friday, 9:30 AM – 4 PM, Finishing School Workshop: This is a wonderful workshop just to learn how to create interesting bindings and how to apply them effectively and efficiently. How to apply a permanent or temporary sleeve for hanging, and how to create a label that tells the story of your quilt.
November 8, Saturday, 9:30 AM – 4 PM, Machine Quilting Workshop: This class introduces you to marking a small project and gets you started on quilting it. We play with a lot of different design options, fabric choices, battings and threads. I will show you how to use marking tools and stencils effectively and creatively.
