Clothesline Bowls & Baskets at Coastal Quilters
Camden, Maine, October 6, 2017—October’s program at Coastal Quilters will feature bowls, baskets, and other items made from coiled and sewn clothesline and fabric scraps. Avid seamstress and quilter Judy Sala will present the program on Saturday, October 14, at the Lions Club in Camden. She will cover construction basics and include tips on adding embellishments and explain how to create different shapes. These bowls and baskets look complicated, but the process is simple and easy to learn. The vessels provide storage for all kinds of treasures, from phones and remotes, knitting supplies, and kids’ toys—to more fabric scraps! And they make attractive and unusual gifts. The program begins at 10:00 a.m. and is free and open to all.
A resident of Thomaston for more than 40 years, Judy Sala has been an artist most of her life. She started sewing by making matching outfits for her five daughters. Judy’s love of sewing expanded into a career as a seamstress, longarm quilter, and consultant and educator for Bernina sewing machines, with customers throughout Maine.
