Lecture and Workshops Presented by:

Kimberly Einmo

Kimberly has been sewing since she was seven years old and she has taught quilting classes for over 20 years (although she thinks that makes her sound really old!) She has written 3 books, designed 4 rulers, and she loves to travel with her family all over the world to gather ideas for new designs and to share her passion for quilting with everyone!

Friday Workshop:  Lone Starburst
6 hour class / Intermediate level

Kimberly’s most popular class; this one sells out wherever she teaches it! All it takes are 40 – 2˝” strips (from a purchased precut bundle or strips cut from your own stash) plus one background fabric and the diamond design possibilities are practically endless! I’ll teach you how to strip-piece and cut diamond building blocks from strips using the EZ Jelly Roll Ruler using no “Y” or set-in seams, and from there you’ll design your very own, completely unique Lonestar variation quilt. Although the first part of the class focuses on fast and efficient cutting and piecing diamond units, the latter part of the class will focus on design elements and the almost limitless possibilities for designing your own quilt layout using diamonds. The real magic comes from the fact that the quilt is assembled using straight-set blocks – not diamond wedges or blocks on point. This is an eye-opening class for anyone who wants to create a completely one-of-a-kind quilt with a Lonestar twist!

Sunday Workshop:  Modern T's

6 hour class / Skilled beginner or intermediate level

This exquisite quilt is a fabulous fusion of modern aesthetics and traditionally-pieced units combining Kimberly's best rotary cutting and precision piecing techniques! She'll teach you how to accurately cut your units from strips and assemble them using her signature EZ Flying Geese Ruler method for making no-fail half-square triangles and flying geese units using no math, no wasted fabric, and no stress! You'll learn how to look at traditional units with a fresh, new perspective to embrace some of the qualities of modern quilting without having to sacrifice your love for traditional machine piecing. There are no 'whack-and-sew-with-abandon' methods in this class! Kimberly will provide lots of hands-on, personal attention to help you explore winning color combinations and layout possibilities just a "wee bit outside of your comfort zone.” Learn everything there is to know about half and quarter square triangles -- and why they matter -- and have fun in the process! You'll enjoy a happy and productive day of sewing and leave feeling refreshed and inspired. That's Kimberly's guarantee!
