NEXT MEETING
Thursday, July 2, 2015

 

Speaker: Sharon Schamber

 

“A Trunk Show”

 

I will let my quilts speak for me. I started my quilting just like most of you - buying the wrong fabric, using the wrong batting, and using the wrong needles. With time, I learned to use what really works for me,even though the product might not be known as the “right ” one. However, I do not, under any circumstances, compromise my standards. I had to learn what a scant quarter and a fat quarter were. Translating all those unusual terms that we use, so casually, was the next step. The first year was just a spin of learning and creating a base for future quilts.

 

For a novice, the learning curve is quite steep. I remember my grandmother quilting back in the `60s, but everything was so different when compared to today. I hope that the quilt world will be just as different for my grandchildren. When I first began I had no idea that quilts were being machine quilted. I remember only that quilts were all hand-pieced and hand-quilted. I remember my Grandma Larsen counting the stitches per inch and ranting about being inconsistent, so that is where I went. I set out to find how many stitches per inch I needed to make my quilts “right.” I asked the wrong person, and she told me that it was just rude to ask.

 

This was the first indication that I needed to be a teacher. Winning the Houston International Quilt Festival twice, plus other shows, speaks volumes for this quilter / teacher /award winner.
