Show/Teaching Schedule

2020 Show Schedule

As we know, shows have been canceled for the immediate future and we’re all unsure when they’ll resume.

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.


Fabulous Foiled Fabric

Want to add highlights, energy, and excitement to your projects? Embellishing with foil produces a shine more intense than metallic paint/oils, and can be used sparingly as an accent, or become a major design element (with washable results).

Learn how to make spectacular special effects using adhesives with stamps, stencils, leaves, rubbing plates, fusible web, brushes, and more.

Monday, Nov 4 , 11:00-12:00 (EST)

Creating the WOW Factor with Garments


Just one special accent can transform an average garment into a “ Wow”, that you enjoy wearing because it attracts compliments from others.


During the first hour, you’ll get lots of inspiration from Laura’s slide show of gorgeous garments featuring one-of-a-kind fabrics, some of which are created using paintstik rubbings or transparent paints. The garments shown are based on the patterns of independent pattern designers, available to home sewers. Laura shares her approach to selecting fabrics and problem-solving strategies.


The second hour features a demonstration illustrating how easy paintstik rubbing techniques can transform plain fabric in “wow” washable yardage, plus a demonstration on using
transparent paints with existing prints.
