Art Quilting Retreat with Anne Standish -  Ferry Beach Retreat and Conference Center  •   Saco, Maine
April 17, 2019 - April 20, 2019

This two full day+ (three night) workshop is offered to experienced quilters who are interested in enhancing their own photograph, printed onto fabric, with thread sketching. You will be able to create a breath-taking quilt for hanging, based on an image very personal to you.

Our instructor is Anne Standish, known in New England for her landscape and portrait work. Anne was the featured artist in April 2018 at a St. Albans Gallery, and is an articulate instructor, passionate about her work, and eager to help you increase your art quilting skills, whether you are a beginner or have experience. View her work at (Vermont Art Quilts).

This workshop differs from the norm! Anne will prepare and bring YOUR (pre-submitted) photos on ready-to-stitch cloth. You will be able to begin sewing immediately, without fussing with the printing process, etc.
