February 27 Improv Curved Piecing Cost $20
Presented by Joyce Franklin of Pieceworks in Winterset, Iowa
Free-form curvy piecing Supply List
Sewing machine with neutral thread
Iron and pad if you have a small one
Bring scraps, some quarter yard cuts, some fat quarters, a few neutrals (I always include a few blacks, dark grays), but mostly just fabrics you love, ones that make you smile.
Bring a chunk of batting 27x27” and a ¾ yard backing and your walking foot, just in case you get to the quilting stage.
We’ll explore improvisational piecing and quilting our own art quilts.
This is easy, not at all intimidating. It is a way to free your mind and be creative.

Below is a list of tips that will help everyone have a good time and learn as much as possible during the few hours you will be with your teacher. Teachers work hard to share their knowledge, skills and experience. They will appreciate your courtesy and put more effort into their teaching if they know their hard work is appreciated.
Only make a reservation for a quilt workshop if you are fully committed to it and pay your registration fee immediately to show that commitment and help you keep it. Until you pay, your spot will NOT be reserved.
*Arrive early to set up so you are ready to go when the workshop starts.
*Switch off your mobile phone or set it on vibrate.
*If you are unable to attend a workshop, please notify the program chair immediately so we can notify those on the waitlist.
*Carry a notebook, ask plenty of questions, and take notes about the answers.
