Living and quarantining in Durban South Africa does not stop Rosalie from teaching all two weeks of Virtual QSDS. It does mean that she will be starting each class day when she should normally be going to bed. But it would not seem like QSDS without Rosalie!During the first week, she will lead the seven-day Independent Study, mentoring the group and nudging each artist to do their best work. Rosalie is a master of pretty much every fiber art technique, which is apparent in the exuberant mix of silks, cottons, hand and machine stitching in her quilts.
During the second week, she will teach the five-day class “Earth Wind and Fire.” The colors and textures of those elements will be the inspiration for each student’s quilt. This is a popular class. At a previous QSDS Jan Booch chose Fire as her inspiration:
Earth was the starting point for Jean Weaver’s quilt:
What element would you choose? Doesn’t this sound like fun? What’s in your stash that could be the start of an Elements quilt? This is a great class for students of all skill levels.
Are you more in the mood for a relaxing weekend of hand stitching? Then join Rosalie for two days of “Slow Stitch Satisfaction.” It’s a very low-pressure class, where you wlll rediscover how nice it is to pull out colorful threads and do some stitching. Even Rosalie’s demonstration samples are little improvisational works of art.
