Far, far away - Day 1 SSC

Today was the first day of the first bra class at the Saskatchewan Stitches Conference (SSC). The class didn't finish their bras but that's not at all unusual. Tomorrow they will finish

In the evenings, we always have some great group activities. Here is a view of Wendy's portable store at SSC. She carries all the essentials that we will need for the 11 days, and also SEW much more!
We also had a show and tell tonight. There was about 20 women there but a very enthusiastic bunch they were.
Here are some of the quilts on display in our classroom this year.


In the show and tell, we saw a quilt that Peggy made. Here is the back of the quilt
And here is the front. The squares are made from fabric Peggy made in a previous SSC class
We also saw the things that Jackie Van Fossen makes. Jackie is a very talented fibre artist, who specializes in surface embellishment of cloth and paper. These are some projects that are coming up for next year. This is foil embellishment and paint on fabric.
This is Jackie's version of text messaging - using various media to apply text on fabric.


Here's top projects using texted fabric
Lastly she made this little sampler quilt to show all different techniques she teaches. Some of these are called "Gelli prints" which is the class she taught today in another part of the College.

Stay tuned for more photos of the SSC - there are 10 more days as inspiring as today!
