Amish Inspired Modern- Pati Fried

Having just finished a quilt that went off for a Amish Inspired Modern exhibit at San Jose Quilt Museum, Pati thought it might be interesting to work on taking Amish designs and doing a modern twist to them. Most of my classes and workshops are based on teaching a technique, then allowing the student to play. Individual creativity will be nurtured and a design-wall process will be encouraged! Pati, a fabric designer, author, teacher and pattern designer is offering three spectacular classes this winter!
