May 28 - Jill Jensen
After beginning her art career as a painter, Jill Jensen, explored many media including drawing, pastels, paper making and printmaking before discovering the world of surface design. She jumped straight into creating art quilts by combining the painting and printmaking techniques she loved. Learn more about Jill Jensen at
9am-12pm Workshop: "Tree of Life." This hands-on workshop led by Jill Jensen will introduce students to the art of printmaking and how to apply it to printing on fabric for use in quilts. Each student will create a small printing plate and learn how to print on fabric. Supply List and Photo for "Tree of Life" Workshop.
1pm-3pm Lecture/Trunk Show: "How I came to print on fabric." This lecture will show Jill's path from painter to utilizing printmaking to create unique fabrics for her fiber art. She will share her quilts to show how her work has evolved.

Workshop Guidelines for 2019

LQG Workshops are educational and fun opportunities for small groups of quilters (generally between 15-25) to obtain valued instruction from guest Presenters and learn new patterns, techniques, shortcuts and design elements, as well as develop deeper threads of friendship with other Guild members. For your information, please refer to the following Workshop Guidelines:

1. Three or more months prior to the Workshop, signups will begin at the regular monthly meeting.
2. Two months prior to the Workshop, if it is not filled, signups will be offered to other guilds and the general public at an additional fee.
3. One month prior to the Workshop, if not filled, it will be cancelled and payments returned.
4. Only people who have signed up AND paid can attend the Workshop. You are not considered signed up until your payment is received.
5. When the Workshop is filled, a "Waiting List" sign-up sheet will be made available. If someone drops out, the next person on the Waiting List will be called. (If you need to cancel, please DO NOT find a replacement unless there is no one waiting.)
6. Once you have signed up for a Workshop and you find you are unable to attend, you WILL NOT receive a refund unless your spot is filled.

Please contact Veronica Church as soon as you know you cannot attend a Workshop you have signed up and paid for. If applicable, they will contact the next person on the waiting list. If there is no one on the waiting list, you may find your own replacement and give Veronica your replacement's name and contact information.
