August General Meeting, August 18, 2022, 12 pm-3 pm, Speaker Elizabeth DeCroos, “Pojagi: A Traditional Korean Art Form”
We’re really excited to have Elizabeth DeCroos speak at our August meeting at BVCC. In 2009, she took her young family to South Korea, where she had the opportunity to learn Pojagi – a traditional Korean art form that goes back thousands of years. Upon returning to Canada, Elizabeth developed techniques for similar patchwork using a sewing machine and materials more readily available in the west. Her window hangings look like stained glass in the sun. You can find patterns, tutorials and inspiration at Epida Studio .
September General Meeting, September 15, 2022, 12 pm-3 pm, Speaker Debbie Wendt, “Egyptian Tent Makers Applique”
While living in Cairo, Egypt, Debbie was introduced to and befriended the men known as Tentmakers. They make the applique decorated panels used in ceremonial tents.
Tentmaker references have been recorded as far back as Biblical and Pharaonic times. Debbie will share her collection of the Tentmakers’ work and steps of their applique technique. You can find more information about Debbie Wendt at Wendt Quilting. For additional information, contact the VP of Programs .
