Diane Gloystein loves to create unique one of a kind creations on her sewing machine. As a National Educator representing Sulky of America, she travels around the country entertaining and educating fellow sewing enthusiasts. In her words, “It’s my job to inspire others with creative ideas as I share my passion for the art of sewing.”

Learn about many types of threads and their uses and what needles work for various applications. Stabilizers for use in quilting will be discussed. There will be many tips and hints to enhance your quilting.

Diane will be bringing books and various products that she will be referring to in her presentations and have these items for sale at the meeting and class. She is only able to accept cash and checks.

Class: Split Purse-onalities
Teacher: Diane Gloystein
Date: Tuesday, November 11, 2014
Time: 9:00am – 4:00pm

Make a large quilted shoulder bag with a “Split Personality” as the focal point. With Diane’s expertise we will learn about what products work well with this application and she will share her “Split-personality” technique so each bag will be an individual project. This Split Purse-onality bag would be a wonderful gift, just in time for the holidays.
