Kathie Kerler, ZigZag Pizzaz (October, 2016 Quilt Guild Meeting)

 Kathie Kerler is a fiber artist, writer, and NQA Certified Quilt Judge. 

When she visited our guild meeting in October, we asked her to speak about techniques for adding interest in dimension to our quilts.  She presented her lecture on using only a zig zag stitch to create elegant effects on art quilts.  You an see more examples of her work on her webstie.

Kathie has completed rigorous courses in design and embroidery through London City and Guilds College of London, England and at the Lesage School of Needlework in Paris, France. She exhibits her work at various shows and galleries.  Many of her techniques came from these challenging courses.  It was very interesting to hear her speak about how she developed these techniques- many through trial and error. 

During our break, members enjoyed the opportunity to see her work up close.
