Scrap Queen Workshop:

This workshop is a fun day of using scraps, specifically strings. Strings are strips that are random widths and lengths. I review what makes scrappy quilts work, ways to approach scrap quilts, and easy ways of organizing your scraps and strings so that they actually get used.  I will have lots of examples of scrappy quilts I have made for inspiration.

I will be presenting at least 8-10 different quilts that are made with strings. You will make a sample block of several different quilts.  You will not be working on one project and go home with something that needs to be finished.  You will go home with a folder full of ideas and inspiration for how to use the stash of strips and strings that you have! It will be a day of playing with those scraps you have been saving!!

I have previously taught a workshop to your guild making scrap quilts with 2-1/2” strips. This class is a similar format focusing on strings. It is the class I developed for those guilds that wanted a follow-up workshop after the fun of the first one!

Hello, my name is Stasha Ceglarz. 

I’m a fiber artist who lives in Ontario, Canada, where I create, teach, and adjudicate quilting, felting and other fiber arts.  I've won numerous international and national awards for my work.
​​Heritage and creativity are important to me, as are beauty, color, and attention to detail in the development of my unique pieces.  I trace my artistic abilities to my grandmother, who was a talented artist and seamstress.  I often combine traditional fiber art patterns and techniques with original designs in my quilting and felting artistry.

I like to bring playfulness and wonder to my projects.  My garden and nature and the colors around us are my constant inspiration.

         Non-Members - $50.00


Time: 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Elaine is going to expand your view of how to attach bindings to your quilts with your sewing machine in this sample filled demo. We'll start by discussing when it's appropriate to sew the binding on by sewing machine.

You'll learn what width of strips to cut for the binding size you want, how to get that perfect mitered corner every time, and most important, how to make that final join look practically invisible.

Other variables like sewing machine presser feet, thread colors and types, decorative stitches, needles and a whole lot more will be explored.

This lecture is going to give you some simple tips that will have your bindings looking very professional in no time.
