Shannon Brinkley Is Coming To Town!
We have the pleasure of having Shannon Brinkley, of the Scrappy Applique craze coming to speak to our guild on Thursday, January 19, 2017. She will also be teaching a workshop on Saturday, January 21, 2017 from 9:00 – 3:00, at Sew Fabricated.
“Shannon Brinkley is a quilt / fabric designer, author, and national speaker and teacher based in Austin, Texas.
“Shannon has always been drawn to any craft involving textiles. As a young girl, she explored weaving, embroidery, knitting, garment sewing, among others, and began quilting in college, where she fell completely in love with the craft. Inspired by her love of fabric and the texture, Shannon wrote the book Scrappy Bits Applique, where she teaches how to turn scraps of fabric into gorgeous, modern art quilts by collaging a variety of fabrics, vintage and new, with different colors, tones, and patterns to create really interesting and unique textures.
“A former elementary teacher, teaching remains a huge passion of Shannon’s, and she speaks and teaches her modern quilting techniques all across the US.”
