WESTFIELD - The Westfield Quilters' Guild will bring National Quilting Instructor, Linda Pool, to the area Thursday, May 16 through Saturday, May 18.
Pool will be giving a trunk show lecture, as well as teaching several workshops.
Pool is perhaps best known for her work, "The Bride." It received the Viewer's Choice Award in five major quilt shows in a row and was published in magazines and a calendar. It utilizes a technique she calls counted creations, which uses gridded planning and strip piecing methods to turn images into quilts.
Pool has also done work with mixed media still life scenes, miniatures, and her current focus of cutwork lace applique.
The guild will be honored to view some historic works, as well as see the breadth of her interests and experiences. Guests will be welcome with a $5 fee for the lecture, which will be held Thursday, May 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the United Methodist Church of Westfield.
Workshops will be given Friday, May 17 on the counted creations technique and Saturday, May 18 on a cutwork lace applique project and a miniature quilted work. They will cost $40 per day, or $75 for both. Quilters from outside the guild are welcome to contact Carol Bish at 753-2041 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information on classes.
