Ladies of the Lake Quilt Guild Brings Sandra Mollon to Lake County

The Ladies of the Lake Quilt Guild is proud to announce that Sandra Mollon will be giving a presentation at our Saturday, January 8 guild meeting. The lecture will take place at the Lakeport Senior Center at 537 Konocti Blvd, Lakeport, CA from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sandra Mollon comes to us from Valley Springs, California. She is a textile artist, instructor, author, and designer. She has spent many years working in traditional hand appliqué.

She has had many quilts juried into large international and regional shows. If you attended PIQF this year, you may have seen Mollon’s, “In Perfect Harmony” which won “Best Wall Quilt.” The subject was polar bears and was hung showing both sides of the quilt with magnificent thread painting!

Her lecture will be, “Adapting an Image for an Art Quilt.” She took classes in photography in college and as her interest in art quilts increased, those two interests merged. Her presentation will be part trunk show and part PowerPoint lecture showing how to choose photos to work from, posterization of images, and finally the nuts and bolts of assembly and quilting.

Then on Sunday, January 9, Mollon will conduct a class on “Thread Painting.” The workshop will be held at the Scott’s Valley Women’s Club at 2298 Hendricks Rd., Lakeport, CA. Doors open at 9:30 for set up and class begins at 10 a.m.  Paid reservations are required to attend this class.

Participants will be given a choice of images printed on fabric, and using free motion thread play, the image is covered in stitches to make a wonderful thread-painted art project suitable for framing or other sewing projects. She will bring lots of professional embroidery thread to share, but it doesn’t hurt to bring your own if you have it. The class workshop is suitable for all levels of quilters. Yes, even beginners. She says it looks more difficult than it is and is an excellent way for beginners to support skills in free motion quilting. All you need to know is how to put the feed dogs down on your machine! Cost $45 and a $5 materials fee to Sandra.
