Be inspired by a range of decorative edges to take your quilt or wallhanging from being good to being really special. We will make samples to discover how to create shaped and straight-edge facings, rouleau and scallop trimmed edges, and prairie point details. In addition to this we will learn how to hang and support unusual shaped quilts with plastic boning reinforcements that are invisible from the front of the work. So much more interesting and creative than the usual binding, this class will inspire you to make the most interesting design choices right up to the very last stitch!

#22203, Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire

Day: Friday, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Heritage Ballroom C
Teacher: Michele LaRue
Level: All levels

 

Member: $28 Retail: $35


Many women fought against getting the vote, but none with more charm, prettier clothes—and less logic—than the fictional speaker in Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire. “Woman Suffrage is the reform against nature,” proclaims our unlikely, but irresistibly likeable, heroine. “Ladies, get what you want. Make a scene. Make home a hell on earth—but do it in a womanly way! That is so much more dignified and refined than walking up to a ballot box and dropping in a piece of paper!” In this witty monologue, written in 1912 by pro-suffragist Marie Jenney Howe, the cheerfully single-minded speaker contradicts every point she makes as she crusades to preserve the Home and save the Nation from anarchy.

Using fabric and thread in place of paper and pencil, Kelly will guide the student through the Zentangle With Thread! experience.

The finished size of these tangled masterpieces is typically 9” – 12″ square or rectangle. Join the fun and find your Zen place!
