Northern Baltics Snippet Sensations Landscape

Instructor Cindy Walter
You too can be an artist….with fabric. Snippet Sensations is a technique to create a picture using snippets of fused fabric. Easier than collage quilts. Students work on their own individual, simplistic or complex, custom-designed project. Perhaps create a memory of your cruise. Your wall-hanging or frameable artwork created in class will capture the eyes of everyone. Class gives a comprehensive overview of the Snippet technique.
Skill Level: All Levels

Class notes: Holding a quilt seminar on a cruise ship is a unique experience. Sometimes there are space and time challenges that prevent our being able to be “project oriented” and we must concentrate more on process. It is very unlikely that you will have an absolutely finished project at the end of a class. It is helpful if your expectations match these realities. But regardless of how far you are able to progress, our instructors are professionals—some of the best in the quilting world—and we know you will learn many new techniques and have a wonderful experience!
