The Doctor is IN

Dr. Sandra Sider, art critic, quilt artist, SAQA Past President and currently curator, Texas Quilt Museum, has asked us to share her latest offering: Creativity Workshop: Art Quilt Inspirations at the beautiful Stony Point Art-Space, Stony Point, New York, September 25 - 29, 2016.

The workshop was developed out of Sandra's critique workshops, written about in her Studio Quilt monograph series and illustrated in her new book, 1000 Quilt Inspirations.

The program will include exploring a variety of surface design/printing techniques, and one-on-one work with participants, evaluating their work and suggesting directions for developing each piece; thus, attendance will be capped at 12 attendees.

Quilters will need to bring materials with which to begin their pieces, plus sewing machine, supplies, tools and an iron.  All levels of quilters are welcome, but students must have a strong foundation in sewing and be knowledgeable about their particular sewing machines.

The Gilmor Sloane House - built 1856
Workshop Tuition: $500
Workshop Materials: $40
Accommodation: $450 - $775 (including all meals) - depending on type of lodging selected.

All amounts are in US funds.

In addition to the Art-Space, Stony Point offers scenic venues, peaceful gardens, a meditation space, labyrinth, working farm, library and gift shop.  Attending a workshop in this venue would make for a very special and creative holiday!
