August 13 - Quilt Workshop, Introduction to Thread Painting,
Noon to 3 p.m.
Lea McComas, Colorado, will conduct the workshop "Introduction to Thread Painting." Thread painting is just like "painting" on a canvas, except the fabric is the canvas and colored, embroidery threads are the paints. McComas' pieces have won awards at quilt venues AQS, Paducah, Kentucky, and Road to California, Ontario, California. See her award-winning quilts "Bike Boys," "Panning for Gold," and others at www.leamccomas.com.
