Karen Henry Workshops in Fredericton - Oct 17, 18, 19

The Fredericton Quilters Guild is pleased to have CQA's Teacher of the Year, Karen Henry, come to Fredericton to deliver 3 of her workshops. There are places left in each of these workshops and we invite any quilter to register to take one of these classes. If you have questions or to register, please contact Wendy McLean at 506-209-9422.

Woven Quilts – Saturday – October 17th – - $40.00 - Beginner + (know how to use rotary cutter & mat)

Celebrate the weaving of two or more different materials to create a distinctive piece of fabric. There will be a discussion of the variety of materials that can be used to work the fabric, how fabrics of various patterns can create movement, and how different values can accent your focal point. Students will select the technique they wish to do and create a small wall hanging in this one-day workshop.
(The squirrel and shoe are not part of the workshop)

Pet Portraits – Sunday – October 18th. $40.00

Take a photograph of your favorite pet and transform it into fabric using fusible web products and your sharp scissors. Add a little bit of character to the wall hanging by including the pet’s toys or hobbies. This is a small project designed for those students who have experience free motion quilting.

Delightful Dragonflies Monday – October 19th. -- $40.00 + kit fee

This class offers the intermediate quilter an opportunity to work on tulle and/or organza. Students will work with water-soluble stabilizer, raw edge appliqué, machine appliqué and wooly embellishments. Students have the option of quilting the entire project, or just the borders. Built in embroidery pattern ‘Dragonflies’ from the Pfaff Creative Vision machine included in project. Kit Fee of $5.00. No embroidery machine is required!


  1. Can't wait just got some fabrics yesterday!

  2. It's too bad that these workshops coincide with the Angela Madden workshops being given by the Marco Polo Guild and Kennebecasis Valley Quilt Guild. Might I suggest that, in future, some co-ordination between the guilds, as to workshop dates for visiting teachers,would greatly assist in filling classes.
