Rami-KimOctober Workshop- Oct. 8th: No Sew Tumbling Blocks • Rami Kim

On October 7th, our speaker is Rami Kim. On her website she tells us that she learned her sewing techniques by making Barbie doll clothes for her daughters. After taking a free log cabin quilting class she began creating her own wearable art and quilts. Now that she is an "empty nester' she is able to spend as much time sewing as she wants..something that will change when grandchildren come along!

At one time she had 11 sewing machines. That number came in handy when doing her free motion embroidery. She would put a different color in each machine and move around to the color of thread she needed! She now only has seven, having sold four to make room for newer machines.

Rami Kim's workshop-Tumbling BlocksHer workshop on Wednesday, October 8th is No-Sew Tumbling Blocks. Contact Kathleen Stanley to see if space is available. (info@pinetreequiltguild.com)

From Rami's website: "You don't need to cut diamond pieces nor make set-in stitches to create perfect points for tumbling blocks. Depending on width of fabric strips you can make tumbling blocks in any sizes by weaving in three different directions."
