Destinations: Travel-Inspired Quilts

For the past few years, Marcia has been working on a series of large-scale pictorial quilts based on her travel photographs. Journey with her to Santa Fe, Italy, England, and the South of France, where she shows you her favorite scenes and tells how she created the quilts they inspired. Includes trunk show if enough quilts are available and venue is within driving distance of San Francisco.


It Helps to Have a Camera: Finding Photographic Subjects and Using Them in Your Quilts

Would you like to make quilts inspired by your own photos, but don't know where to begin? Marcia will show you how to find subjects that inspire you, what makes one photo better than another, and simple ways to improve your skills with a camera. Learn why your ability to tell a story is more important than the cost of your equipment, and why enthusiasm for your subject is your strongest ally. Includes small trunk show if enough quilts are available and venue is within driving distance of San Francisco.
