Hudson River Valley Art Workshop in Greenville, NY

Last week Mary and I took an art quilting class (Sewing the Land) from Sue Benner at the Hudson River Valley Art workshops in Greenville, NY.  The workshop is held at the Greenville Arms 1889 Inn in the carriage house. The workshop space was great – good lighting, enough power for everyone to use an iron, and a good workspace with design boards. Students stayed at the main house, carriage house or cottages.  The fall foliage was so beautiful at this time of year.  The class was 5 days with 18 students.  Sue Benner is an excellent teacher and we all learned about her techniques to make landscape quilts with fabric.

On day one, after learning some basics about her techniques, we each made 3 small studies using one of our photographs.

First small study

We had about 20 to 30 minutes to finish each small study.

Last small study – needs lots of work.

It was a fun first day.  More to come in the next post.  Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna

Looks more like a forest fire than fall foliage
