Each year at the Festival, since it’s beginning 14 years ago, we have offered a free interactive activity for everyone to participate in. We now have a dedicated Maker Space with 3 free activities, a different one each day. We also have the Creative Open Studio, a space for you to play all weekend long. This year we are putting a new spin on Fabric Slashing. With ongoing support from our sponsors, we provide machines for your use, materials and new ideas, all included in the price of your admission ticket.
This year one of the activities we are offering (all day Saturday) is a Hexie Fabric Pin, hosted by the Pittsburgh Modern Quilt Guild. We are pleased to have the participation of the talented and creative ladies from the guild show you how to use the English paper piecing technique to make fabric pins. We’ll provide all of the materials and you’ll leave with a new pin and the skills to make more at home. If you have some favorite fabric scraps, 3-6 inches in size, that you would like to make into a pin, you are welcome to bring it to incorporate with the fabrics we provide.
4 of the members of the Pittsburgh Modern Quilt Guild are also teaching sewing, quilting and color classes at the Festival this year including:
