Show/Teaching Schedule

2021 Show Schedule

Although some shows are hoping to resume later this year,  it’s still a bit early to make a commitment.

However, our desire to learn has not abated, so Laura has taken the leap to teaching and lecturing online via Zoom.

Zoom Classes Scheduled

Two new classes not previously offered as in-person workshops are now available through registration at the Original Sewing and Quilt Show.


Mexican Painted Fabric Tiles


 Create the stunning colors and intricate details of Mexican painted tiles using a raw edged fusible applique, which means no seam allowances or piecing.  Shapes are made with easy paintstik rubbing techiques on cotton fabric, with Laura Murray stamp sets creating the patterns and shapes.  Then, layered fusible backed shapes are cut  out and fused to a background fabric,  resulting in festive one-of-kind quilt blocks.  This lecture begins with a slide presentation followed by a demonstration detailing the process.

Repurposing Fabric with Paintstiks


Are you looking for a technique to easily transform fabric you may already own into batiks, dramatic prints, or subtle special effects?  Have you launched a project only to discover the fabric you have isn’t “quite right”, so you buy more yardage?   The versatility, ease of use, and flexibility of paintstiks can give you the ability to make exactly what you need, when you need it.  See demonstration of a variety of techniques, each  producing different effects, along with a slide show of numerous application ideas.
