Press Release: Jan. 9, 2016 Meeting

Recycling Fabric “Waste”—Selvage Quilts

Camden, Maine, December 31, 2015— Linda Satkowski will discuss creating quilts from fabric selvages and bring examples of her work to show at the January 9th meeting of Coastal Quilters. Selvages are the tightly woven edges of fabric that run the length of a bolt. They don’t fray and are usually very colorful. When pieced together, selvages make beautiful graphic quilts or quilted projects. The free presentation will begin at 10:00 a.m. at the Camden Lions Club. Everyone is welcome.

A retired nurse practitioner, Linda Satkowski has been quilting for 40 years. She also makes traditional and crazy quilts, and enjoys creating functional art that is lasting and beautiful. Linda is a member of Coastal Quilters and lives in Camden.

Coastal Quilters, a chapter of the statewide Pinetree Quilt Guild, meets the second Saturday of the month at the Camden Lions Club on Lions Lane. Its purpose is educational and anyone interested in quilting, at any level, is most welcome. Current members represent every type of quilter, from traditional to modern and art quilters.
