|Winter Weather Policy. NeedleChasers follows the lead of the Montgomery County Public Schools: if school is cancelled, our NeedleChasers meeting for that day is also cancelled. If the schools have a delayed opening, our NeedleChasers meeting will take place at it's regular time.
The first day (Tuesday) of this exciting three-day workshop is ‘Color is Magic’. This is a 'stress free' class where students have fun experimenting with color and design. Participants will begin by studying and experimenting with some structured color schemes. They will then move on to create a simple landscape quilt that features an unusual palette of fabrics. The emphasis will be on color choice and value, using colors that may never have been seen before in nature but work harmoniously together for a stunning and different effect. There will be a choice of two patterns, so that the emphasis is on the color selection and not drawing out a pattern.
The second two days (Thursday and Friday) of the workshop is ‘Layer by Layer’. If you are ready to try something different, experimenting with designs, patterns and fabrics, this class will help you take that next step. Combine elements of landscape in an abstract way to create something unique and visually exciting. Patterns will be available for four abstract designs or you can design your own. If you decide to design your own, bring some photos, sketches etc. to use as inspiration.
We anticipate that this workshop will be very popular, so sign-up is on a first-come first-serve basis and we will be setting up a waitlist. A check, written to NCCC, is required to assure your spot in the workshop and the waitlist. We will not be accepting electronic or credit card payments for this workshop. You must sign up for all three days of the workshop.
