HandMade: Art Quilts
Join host, Greg Downs, as he visits the studio of Pam George, a Fiber Artist, who specializes in Art Quilts. 
  • Learn how Pam develops her designs from concepts and ideas, rather than a pattern. 
  • Hear how she got started in this very intricate hobby, sometimes even designing a quilt from a photo.  
  • Learn what a quilt sandwich is. 
  • What’s thread painting, and meandering? 
  • Like any artist, creative blocks sometimes slow progress. How does she get past this? 
Drop in on Greg and Pam and learn more about this very talented Tellico Village artist.

ALSO one of our own members has a book coming out: 

Local quiltmaker, quilt designer, and former quilt teacher, Cindy Blackberg has a brand new book coming out in January with Martingale publishing. The book is called "Blackberg Edition" and will be available at Twisted Sisters for pre-orders.  Cindy will be signing books in the shop when the book is released in January. Along with the book signing, all 11 of the quilts chosen to be featured in the book will be at the shop for you to see.
