Make like a mad fiber artist

two purses Online Quilt Fest poster Cindy Oravecz of Quilter's Fancy makes like a mad fiber artist for her Zoom purse class set for the next Online Quilt Festival. She will debut two new flowers in this class.

Students will learn old school machine couching of fiber and ribbon for truly graceful vines done easily, and they will cut, iron and apply silk velvet and foil invisibly. We will shape and machine sew Renaissance-like trim into flowers in minutes. The possibilities are endless with these easy machine embellishment techniques.

The class will be taught via Zoom Saturday, Aug. 15, from noon through 6 p.m. Sign up here.

For the first time, the festival, promoted by Mancuso Show Management,  will feature an online quilt competition, with a top prize of $1,500 for the best of show quilt. For details click here.

The Online Quilt Festival will run continuously from 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 12 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Aug.15. Virtual show-goers will be able to view two quilt galleries, shop the vendors online, and take virtual interactive workshops from the comfort of home.

Suggested admission is $8, but the promoters do not want anyone to be unable to participate due to cost.
