Sylvia Pippen

Sashiko, Sunprints & Applique
Sylvia Pippen grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and learned to sew from her mother.   Sylvia studied tailoring and pattern making while raising her family in Massachusetts, where she owned a nursery as well as writing weekly gardening columns for the local newspaper. Later, after the kids grew up, Sylvia and her husband sold their farm and bought an old 40-foot sailboat, where she learned to quilt in cramped quarters.

Then they moved to Hawaii where Sylvia worked as a gardener at the National Tropical Botanical Garden on Kauai, and you can see the tropical twist in her quilts.

Now Sylvia teaches and designs patterns and fabric kits full time.

What is sashiko?
Sashiko is a centuries-old Japanese art form in which a simple, large running stitch of heavy white cotton thread against a dark background can outline the most intricate design.

We have changed the date of our March meeting so that we can take advantage of the artists who are teaching at Empty Spools Seminars.
