Where We Create

Featured Farms and Studios

2012 Guild meetings will feature a different member’s farm, studio or craft-corner each month. We are starting to set the calendar now, and that way, we can start accumulating photos to share at “our” meeting.  A photo, plus a bit of explanatory text will be added onto this page, and links will go to a dedicated page or back to the original post. At these links, expect to see more photos showing our pasture/shelter, overall studio space, specialized work areas, storage method, even some in-progress or finished articles.

Keep checking back each month to see the updates!

Cathy-Quilt Studio— introduced in the March 2012 post.     Along the left side of the studio is a large design wall for trying out fabric swatches or viewing in-progress art quilts.  The work table on the right expands to 4′ by 6′ for rotary cutting or packaging quilts. The two white cabinets, plus an Eastlake chest of drawers hold quilting and art supplies and Cathy’s fabric stash. The heart of the quilting studio is the 18″ Tin Lizzie sit down quilting machine.
