Back by popular demand for the second year in a row, Sierra Sewing is sponsoring another workshop/retreat at Baldini's Casino in Sparks, NV on March 21st thru 24th, 2018 in their Sierra Room. Instructors, Nancy Ryan and Denise Oyama Miller, both nationally recognized textile artists, will again be teaching this workshop. The theme for 2018 is "Landscapes, Barns and Embellishments" focusing on the beauty of the Sierra Nevada Landscapes that surround us here in Northern Nevada. You will have three choices of barn patterns to create your piece and you will create fabric that you will use to create your barn. You will be taught how to create a landscape and how to embellish your piece to give it interest and depth. This retreat ties into Nancy and Denise’s exhibit that will be on display at the Sierra Art’s Foundation in downtown Reno during the month of March, 2018 that features the “Textures of the Sierra Nevada”. Additional information will be forthcoming as we finalize this event. Samples for this workshop are on display at Sierra Sewing Center. The workshop/retreat held in March, 2017 was a great success with wonderful pieces of art created by the student’s who attended.
Nancy and Denise have been teaching art quilting techniques for the past 5 years and quilting for over 35 years. They are members of the Studio Art Quilt Associated and have exhibited in many of their shows throughout the United States. They are currently in a dual exhibition presented by Studio Art Quilts Associates (SAQA) members from the Connecticut and the Northern California/Northern Nevada regions. This is the first bicoastal venues sponsored by the two SAQA Regions.
There is limited seating for this workshop so if you are interested in joining us, please call or drop into Sierra Sewing Center today to reserve your space. Sierra Sewing & Vacuum is located at 8056 S. Virginia Street, Reno, NV or call 775-823-9700.
