Kitty Wilkin Photography Workshop

Join the Triad Modern Quilt Guild in welcoming Kitty Wilkin, of The Night Quilter, to Winston-Salem!

On June 25th Kitty will be giving a lecture entitled “Quilts to Mark Milestones.”

What do you get when you combine journaling with quilting, and add a little bit of
photography? Milestone quilts! Come explore the world of quilts created to mark
milestones, and see why these quilts are a fun and meaningful solution to joyful sewing
in this busy world. Join Kitty as she shares the milestone quilt she created for her third
child to mark his first year of life, and explores other life events that can be documented
through the creation of a quilt. Leave feeling inspired and ready to document your days
through quilt-making, one attainable goal at a time.

The meeting begins at 6:30 PM, doors open at 6 PM. There will be a $5 admission fee to help defray the cost of Kitty’s travel.

On the following Wednesday, June 26th, Kitty will be facilitating a workshop entitled “Photographing your Quilts,” a full-day workshop from 9:30-4:30.

You’ve spent countless hours planning, cutting, sewing, trimming, basting, quilting, and
binding your quilt, now how do you document your masterpiece!? Whether you have a
point and shoot, a fancy DSLR but simply don't know how to use it, or even a
smartphone, Kitty will teach you how to make the most of the tools you have to get great
quilt photos for your blog and Instagram. Kitty will discuss photography basics, lighting,
composition, and staging, and will share a few inexpensive tools that you can find
around your house to take your photos from good to great! Complete with hands on
practice, you will leave feeling confident that you, too, can take great quilt photos
without buying any fancy equipment. Please bring your camera or smart phone, and a
finished quilt. Weather permitting, the afternoon will be spent in practicum, walking
around Winston Salem and practicing identifying ideal photography locations and taking
great photos!

The workshop will be held at Salem Stitches in scenic Old Salem in Winston-Salem, NC. Take this opportunity to learn how to improve your quilt-snapping skills in a scenic environment!

The cost for the workshop is $95 for members, $105 for non-members. Registration for non-members will open on May 15th, so act fast!
