Events Calendar
FRIDAY
Almost Amish Technique Class
9:00am-4:00pm   DNR Conference Center

This quilt began with simple Square Within a Square blocks. Sandy wanted to do something special with them, so she cut them into quarters and combined four quarters to make new blocks. Because of the many solids, including black, this quilt has an almost Amish look to it, hence it’s name. This quilt was featured on Alex Anderson’s “Simply Quilts”. There is no pre-cutting required. It is best to wait until the class to cut fabric, because there will be information about color selection and designing of the blocks.

"One Quilter's Journey" Lecture/Demo
7:30pm    DNR Conference Center

Travel through time with Sandy from before Book One through Book Eight. As she takes you through the years, she will share many quilts, some from each book, and even more quilts from her latest books. This lecture includes stories and humor gained from her many years as an author and traveling quilting teacher.

Classes at Fabric of the Forest:  Featured Quilter Sandy Bonsib

Sandy Bonsib is a teacher by profession, and a quilter by passion. She has a graduate degree in education, is the author of eight quilting books, and has been published in numerous magazines.

Sandy coordinates Quilts for the Children, a group that makes quilts for children of battered women. For the past ten years, she has also been a mentor for high school seniors working on their senior projects in quiltmaking. Sandy lives on a small farm on Cougar Mountain in Issaquah, Washington, with her family and many animals. She also raises puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Sandy’s philosophy about quilting is as important as the skills she teaches. Her goal in her workshops is for students to enjoy the process of making a quilt as much as they expect to enjoy the product. As a professionally trained teacher, she empowers her students by pointing out their successes and building on them. As a passionate quilter, she brings joy, energy, and enthusiasm to every workshop she teaches. She truly feels that quiltmaking should be fun!
