Topic: ”Getting the Most Out of Your Stash”


This lecture explores ways to increase the potential of what we already have in our fabric collections. Cynthia will offer new insights on what to look for in fabrics to get the most out of them, a topic that is near and dear to all quilters! Organizing and storage of fabrics will also be addressed.


A graduate of the Art Institute of Houston, Cynthia and has been creating quilts for more than forty years. Experimentation with quilting techniques led her to develop the unique style that she calls "Picture Piecing".


Cynthia's quilts have been honored with many awards, including two “Best of Show” at the prestigious International Quilt Festival in Houston and “Viewers’ Choice” at the American Quilter’s Society show in Paducah. Her quilt “Piece and Quiet” was distinguished as one of the Hundred Best Quilts of the 20th Century.

Cynthia teaches and lectures nationally and internationally. She is the designer/owner of England Design Studios which is a publishing/pattern company specializing in the "Picture Piecing" technique.

Workshop: Picture Piecing (½ day design PLUS ½ day sewing)


This is a two-part class. The morning will be dedicated to learning the sewing technique while piecing one of Cynthia’s small landscapes. The project piece, “Tranquil Lake”, is pictured on the right.

In the afternoon, students will learn how to take an image and subdivide it so that it can be constructed using the Picture Piecing technique.
