Join Evette Geneve for a fun, fresh revival of 30's fabrics and quilt design in an ongoing class/workshop setting. We'll make a sweet 9 patch with 30's inspired fabrics and look in depth at the fabulous fabrics and quilt settings of the period. We'll take a deep dive into period fabrics, techniques, favorite quilt patterns and how the Great Depression shaped quilt making in the 30's and the decades beyond. This ongoing class/workshop includes a weekly show and tell session - we can't wait to see and hear about your quilted treasures from the 1930's! We know you have them, bring your quilts in to share while we work on your Vintage Revival 9 Patch quilt. Evette will have a wealth of resources available during class for your reference including books for inspiration, period and reproduction fabrics to admire and 1930's quilts for you to see!
