    Program: "Candace Hassen Trunk Show"

    I have 20 large quilts to show. Most are bed sized. I share how I got the idea to make each one; along with the strategies I use throughout my process to stay organized, get things finished and have fun doing it. I share why I made the design decisions that I made. I hope to help you see the world around you with fresh eyes, and get inspired by so much more than just other quilts. I love hearing from those who have seen my program: that I inspired them and made them feel like they could do it!


    Speaker: Candace Hassen

    Working with color relationships is my favorite thing. I enjoy studying motifs from other cultures to get ideas for my work. I get many design ideas from nature, paintings and other artistic mediums as well as vintage quilts and other textiles. I prefer making quilts that contain many fabrics; because I believe that this gives the viewer a much more interesting and pleasing quilt to look at. It also makes the quilt much more versatile; and will help to add a beautiful focal point or unique accent piece to a wider variety of rooms.

    I have a bachelor's degree in art and have been weaving for 35 years; both of which I believe have had a big influence in the way I use color and pattern in my quilt designs. My quilts have been published in McCall's quilting magazine and have won numerous awards in local quilt shows and fairs. I have self-published patterns for many of my quilts.

    Workshop: "Let's Polka"

    This is a wonderful class for beginners as well as experienced quilters. This quilt uses very simple blocks such as half and quarter triangles to make a beautiful contemporary design. We will discuss different ways of laying out these blocks and fun ways to make them more unique with the use of color placement and stripes or other directional prints.

    Program: "Little Quilts, No Big Deal"

    Speaker: Kellie Willey

    Kellie is from Sacramento California. We are sharing her with Sea Island Quilters which allows us to attend their lecture and workshop (which will be different from ours). 

    Why do I make tiny quilts? Mostly because they are tiny! I have always been drawn to miniatures. I live in a tiny (950 square feet) 2 bedroom home and don't have much space to put large quilts. My small quilt studio fills 1/2 of our spare room. Hubby has the other half, well truthfully 30% of the room is his. My Stash fills the closet and I have 3 sewing machines, a Pfaff Creative 3.0, a Pfaff Passport and a Singer Featherweight, which is all I need to make my tiny quilts. I love working in small scale and finishing lots of quilt every year instead of working for months on a large quilt. I have a short attention span and usually want to hurry up and start my next little quilt! The largest quilt I will make is a baby quilt and then only for someone very special (hopefully Grandchildren soon)!

    Program: "The Language of Flowers"

    Speaker: Catherine Redford

    Catherine Redford was born and raised in England. She and her husband moved to Naperville, Illinois in 1995. She has sewn and created since she was a young girl and outfitted her and her siblings' Barbies and action men. She discovered quilting in 1998 and five years later began teaching and hasn't stopped! She is known for her creative modern quilts and machine quilting as well as her wonderful embroidery embellishments which we will delve into on her visit to PQG. Her artist's statement:

    "I believe we all have an innate need to create in some sphere of our lives, being made in the image of a creator god. Quilting is my outlet of choice. I share my love of quilting as an inspiration to others. I have found that as I pass on the knowledge I have gained on my journey I learn more tips and techniques that take me still further.

    Quilting is a choice and as such I think that all quilters have the right to choose the elements of their craft that bring joy to them. There are always parts of our lives that we just "have to do" in pursuit of our long-term goals. It's the same when we quilt. I always encouraged my children to try a new vegetable but could accept that there were some that they would never learn to love. I encourage my students to try all the processes involved in finishing a quilt but accept that there will be some people that find their joy in making tops by machine whilst others enjoy handwork and still others love to machine quilt. That's OK! That's where teamwork comes in and there's a whole community of quilters out there willing to help."
