Workshop: Jane Sassaman- "Simple Silhouettes"

  • Ottawa Historical and Scouting Heritage Museum 1100 Canal Street Ottawa, IL, 61350 United States (map)

On Saturday, October 19 from 9 am until 4 pm. Jane Sassaman will be teaching a workshop entitled Simple Silhouettes.

Jane will be teaching her workshop Simple Silhouettes in which students will learn Jane’s

unique “bandage” applique technique. Each student will pick a center motif from Jane’s patterns to

make a 18” quilt. It is a great class for those beginning in machine applique or those who want to

make a simple, but dramatic wall hanging.

The fee for the workshop is $57.00 for members, and for nonmembers of our guild the cost is

$62.00. That fee includes the workshop, pattern for the project, and lunch. Jane will also be bringing

a fabric kit and thread that students may purchase from her directly for $20.00 and $4.00
