A Quilt Guild based in Rutland Vermont, with members from surrounding towns and counties.
February 17th GUEST SPEAKER
Our February speaker will inspire and challenge us to consider the “vastness of possibility” of quilting.
Thomas Knauer, of Utica, New York, is a fabric designer, postmodern quilter, writer and former professor. Using quilts he has created, he will lead us in an exploration of MODERN CONCEPTS, examining quilting as a “practice” and personal art form. This is not a discussion of traditional versus modern quilting styles as much as a consideration of the role of quilting today, as a cultural expression.
A favorite phrase of Knauer is “GO MAKE STUFF.”
Quilters may recognize him from Quilters Newsletter, along with other magazines and publications. He also is the author of Modern Quilting Perspectives: 12 Patterns for Meaningful Quilts.
