The Art Center has created a new class in quilting due to recent requests from students. Students will learn the easy eight method of making half square triangles used to create a Star Table Runner. Some of the techniques students will learn are sewing eight half square triangles and learning walking foot quilting. Students can bring their own sewing machine, or one will be provided during the class. There is a supply list required and will be provided upon registering for the class. The Instructor will provide materials for the completion of the table runner. Limited seating available, so sign up early!

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Robyn grew up in a suburb of Chicago. She learned to sew at an early age, raised by a family of sewists. She has been a quilter for more than 20 years. Upon retirement as a corporate secretary, Robyn was gifted a longarm quilt machine from the CPA firm she worked for. Now, she spends many of her days happily quilting in her studio. A member of the Pieceful Mountain Quilt Guild and Misty Mountain Quilt Guild, most of her quilts are gifted to local charities. Robyn is also a member of the local Quilts of Valor Foundation that makes and awards quilts to veterans.
Fiber arts have always come naturally to Robyn. She learned to knit in her early 20s and it has been a passion ever since. About 10 years ago, after attending a fiber festival, Robyn became smitten with weaving and spinning. Along with the longarm quilt machine, her studio includes three sewing machines, a serger, two looms and a spinning wheel. She has an affinity for all things fiber arts.
Robyn lives in Morganton with her husband, a semi-retired landscape architect. They have two cats that keep them in stitches with their antics. They have a small dye garden and grow vegetables and herbs as well.
