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

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


Fabulous Fabric Foils


Add a bit of energy and excitement to your projects with embellishments. 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!

Creating the Wow Factor


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 fashion slide show of her garments featuring one-of-kind fabrics, some of which are created using paintstik rubbings.  Laura shares her approach to selecting fabrics, and problem solving strategies.  The final 30 minutes features a demonstration illustrating how an easy paintstik rubbing technique can transform plain fabric into “wow” washable yardage.
