NEXT MEETING: February 27 @ 6:30. We have a special guest, Jeff Warner. Jeff has been a stitcher for 35 years. Entirely self-taught, he began by taking his clothes apart and using the pieces as patterns on new fabric. In 1991, he caught the quilt bug, and turned his attention away from clothing and into quilt piecing. Jeff has worked as a theatrical lighting designer since the early nineties, as well. He has used his sewing skills to create immense scenery pieces for the stage. Quilts took a hiatus for a few years. In 2002, he changed gears and began creating custom leather clothing, bags and accessories. In 2013, he came back to quilting with new ideas for an old style. Jeff specializes in bargello quilts and is currently writing his first pattern featuring the unique design and simple construction of this old classic. @jeffwarnerquilter
