Think outside the box

Try something totally new to you!
There’s way more than the usual piecing, applique and quilting going on at QSDS. So why not try something that’s completely new to you?
 Remember how much fun it was to melt crayons when you were a kid? Check out the photo here. The grown-up art of encaustics, combines wax with all sorts of great collage elements. Clare Murray Adams is a master of this medium.
 Do you have an applique idea that is too elaborately detailed to cut out by hand?
 Betty Busby will show you how to program an electric cutting machine to make your design possible.  And when else will you get a chance to paint, cut and stitch non-woven interfacing? Think of the possibilities!

 But that’s not all...there is also an amazing beading class with Becky Hancock, another class that will teach you to hand stitch new textures into your work and one where you get to try shibori-style dyeing without messing up your own house!
 These are just a few of the other out-of-the-box choices at QSDS this coming spring. Come join us!
