Second Line Linen Quilt Workshop with Bobbie Roberson
Sat, April 22, 2017, 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM CDT
Second Line Linen Quilt with Bobbie Roberson (see instructor bio below)
In this workshop you will begin Bobbie's artistic vintage-style design, Second Line Linen Quilt. You will use vintage and hand-painted linens to make your quilt, adding hand stitching if you like. Bring any old linens you have on hand (cottons as well), and we will supply vintage and hand-painted linen scraps for you to add to yours.
This will be a fun quilt (throw-size) to make. You will get a good start on your quilt top and you may come by the shop any time and lay out your "quilt sandwich" to complete your project. Bobbie will also answer your questions on quilting and binding.
As with all our classes you will receive a 15% class discount on any class-day purchases. You may pay online, by phone or in person.
$55/per person. Machine sewing experience required. You may bring your own machine or use one of ours. Seats are limited for this workshop so register early!
Barbara "Bobbie" Roberson
Born in Austria, Roberson grew up near the Bohemian Forest and came to the United States as an au pair. Traveling the world, she developed an obsession with collecting fabrics and found quilting to be her personal means of storytelling. Roberson's quilts are one-of-a-kind pieces that use hand-painted and vintage fabrics in addition to her personal collection of fabrics. Many of her quilts are influenced by the Quilts of Gee's Bend.
Roberson learned to sew in 6th grade, influenced by her grandmother. Her grandmother, an excellent tailor who created her own fabric using old world methods, and who worked at her craft through 2 world wars, was Roberson's mentor for many of her current methods and techniques.
