Tracey's colorful slides recount her February 2016 trip to Thailand and include images of local textiles, the decorative arts and architecture, and the intense colors of everyday life in Thailand. Art, fabric, food markets, color and pattern, temples and transportation are all touched upon, with emphasis on unusual aspects of the fascinating culture.
Please join us in welcoming Tracey, a former member of MPQG, back to Monterey and the guild if only for the evening.

Please join us for this workshop with Sue Benner, a fabulous artist and quilter. We will make a landscape art quilt using fused, collage, and quilting techniques. Sign ups for this workshop will open at our November meeting. Stop by the workshop table for details.
Sue began making landscape images from raw edges, selvedges, and other odds and ends from scrap bags. From there she went on to add other techniques and develop a body of work inspired by wetlands in her childhood-home state, Wisconsin.
In this workshop, Sue leads participants down a similar path by having each one create at least one landscape quilt, about 10”H x 20”W, along with several small studies. Sue shows you how to look at the landscape, analyze it, and translate it to fabric. She also covers fusible basics, working with non-traditional fabrics, quilting, and binding the fused quilt. A second image can be started if time permits.
