September 2018 Quarterly with Katrina Walker

Katrina Walker returns to Columbia River Sewing for our September 2018 Quarterly meeting.


7 PM – 9 PM Cotton Chic

Open to ALL – No Fee

The secret to making chic clothes – from quilting cotton! Quilting cottons provide us with a virtually unlimited array of gorgeous prints – but too often they fail to translate well into clothing. Learn how to interpret cotton broadcloth prints into chic, flattering garments that have unmistakable style.



9 AM – Noon Divine Details
Learn to sew like a designer! Turn those plain old seams into Divine Details with beautifully decorative seaming techniques and inserts. Add texture, color and dramatic visual interest to your fashion garments and more ART to your wearables. Build a detailed reference notebook with step-by-step instructions of all the techniques learned in class, and enjoy a mini trunk show of fabulous fashion and piece-work sample.

Workshop FEE: $55 ASG / $65 Non-ASG (Fee includes lunch and kit)

Noon – 1 PM LUNCH–Included for all class attendees.

1 PM – 4 PM Introduction to Modern American Pojagi
What is Modern American Pojagi? It is a fresh new way to interpret American quilt designs inspired by beautiful traditional single-layer Korean textile art. In Korea, these lovely creations are traditionally sewn by hand, but in this class you will learn machine techniques that mimic traditional Pojagi seaming. Practice these techniques using a variety of natural textiles and pique your creativity with a trunk show of Pojagi-inspired work. Students will build a detailed reference notebook of what they have learned in class.

Workshop FEE: $55 ASG / $65 Non-ASG (Fee includes lunch and kit)
