Debbie's classes for 2018 QSDS highlight two very different techniques and types of media. Her 5-day class, during the second week of QSDS (June 4-8), focuses on Creating art from recycled fabrics and embellishments. No need to bring a sewing machine - everything can be hand stitched. Here is one of her latest pieces, "Space House".
During the last weekend of QSDS (June 9-10), Debbie will share her painting and mixed media skills. No drawing skills are required for this 2-day class! Working on smooth clay-boards, Debbie will encourage you to experiment with techniques that include mono-printing, adding collage elements, and scratching back into the painted surface.

Her five-day class will focus on working this way, starting with sketches then creating a quilt. Line is an important element in her work and that is the focus of her weekend class during Session 2. She often creates lines from fused fabric But she is also a master of machine quilting, so students are sure to become more confident about their machine quilting skills.
Sue is the author of several books, with another one in the works. Like many quilt artists, she uses her sketchbook to record ideas and start working out designs. She authored a book about the wildly successful Sketchbook Challenge. Check out her classes, the supply lists and more images of her work here:
