Teacher Spotlight: Lorie McCown

Lorie studied drawing and painting in college. Although she still paints, much of her work these days involves stitching, either by hand or machine. Her quilt, "The Story Cloth Vol. 1-4", was in Quilt National 2015. She is known for the way she works old textiles into her art, re-purposing them to help tell a story.

Do Treasured family items or discarded pieces of clothing and fabrics from the thrift shop speak to you? Then you might want to join Lorie and spend some time exploring what you can say and do with those textiles.
During the second week of QSDS 2018, Lorie will teach "Connections in Cloth (a 5 day class) and "Ex Voto: Small Stitched Works" (a 2 day class).
Come to QSDS and get some quality stitching time in!
