Join us for a fun & creative workshop where you will create a small "art" quilt suitable for mailing, framing, or hanging. It's a fast and fun activity. The possibilities are endless - it will be hard to stop at one! All supplies will be provided for this 1 and 1/2 hour workshop. You will learn how to design using pre-printed fabrics, how to use fusible adhesive, and what the US Postal Service regulations are if you'd like to mail these small treasures to a friend!
The workshop will be lead by local artist & quilter Paula Golden. Selected as “2001 Teacher of the Year” by The Professional Quilter Magazine, Paula has been quilting since the early 1970s and teaching for over twenty years, including the International Quilt Festival, Houston. Her quilts, patterns and articles have been published in various magazines and books. Paula is past-president of the Board of Directors, Virginia Quilt Museum and co-author of the book Quilts of Virginia: Birth of America through the Eye of a Needle. She trained as a medical technologist and completed her Master of Independent Study in print-making and surface design. Paula is certified in administering the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator and incorporates the concept that understanding oneself increases the creative process.

“Using fiber as a creative means to communicate is intrinsic to my very being. It links me to the continuum of men and women who have stitched their lives in fiber to provide warmth and nourishment for the body and soul.” Her passion for the stories behind the quilts is a leading theme in her work. While the history of stitching is important as a documentation of issues of concerns and art, it is also a means of expressing joy and humor." - Paula Golden
