MJ Kinman: Gems and Joy Wednesday April 14 2021 7:30 pm EST

MJ Kinman is a textile artist. Working with fabric and paint, she creates large format works that use the play of light and colour to display the personality of the actual stone. Her work has been exhibited in galleries, museums, national juried competitions. and private collections. Visit her website, and view a 3-minute video to be inspired.

In addition to describing her 20-year adventure in creating her diamond quilts, she will discuss selecting gems that qualify as “divas and drama queens” and what they teach us about how to add sparkle to any art quilt. She’ll also talk about the techniques used to create and assemble the hundreds of pieces in each diamond, materials she uses to create the wash of colour and light across a gem’s surface, and the quilting techniques that enhance a gem’s facets.

Gillian Travis: Make Journey into Stitch SPECIAL DAY AND TIME: Sunday May 16th 2021 11:00 am EST

Gillian Travis has loved textiles from a young age. She is an award winning quilter who has taught around the globe. Many of her works feature a collection of similar objects- I fell in love with the pomegranate quilt years ago, and have followed her ever since. It is easy to see she is an adventurous traveller with a love for textiles, photography and colour. She incorporates all these loves in creating her journal quilts, a great way to capture the look and feel of a place. Come and be inspired! See a few more of my favourite Gillian Travis photos here.. or check out her website , her blog or her instagram @gilliantravis
