 Prairie Point Junction Welcomes

Kathy Gaul of Meetinghouse Hill Designs

Saturday, April 8th

Trunk Show at 10:00 a.m.

Class from 1:00-7:00 p.m.

Event held at First Presbyterian Church, 819 E Street, Cozad, NE 69130

Kathy Gaul of Colorado took her love of textiles, her attention to detail, and her desire to share her passion with others, and launched her dimensional wool applique pattern company, Meetinghouse Hill Designs.  Founded upon the belief that doing business with integrity and commitment was the only way to operate, she has continued to grow her company to over 50 wool applique and rug hooking designs at present.  Kathy travels the country vending at quilt and wool shows, speaking to quilt guilds and wool groups and teaching her unique dimensional techniques in wool.  

During the Trunk Show, Kathy will share delightful stories of the people, places and events that inspire her artwork and give meaning to the work of her hands. She will highlight the dimensional features and techniques she uses in her artwork, and have all her original artwork on display as well as her patterns, kits, felted and hand-dyed wools, and sheep related specialties available for sale. 

The class will feature the a-MAZIE-ing il-LUMINA-tion dimensional wool applique pattern.  Students will go through all the steps and processes for doing wool applique from proper pattern and fabric preparation, to learning the tricks of blanket stitching flat to a table (and with no fusible), to the best part of this design— creating realistic Indian corn with the simple technique of working an elongated French knot (and using amazing hand-dyed pearl cotton threads to create it!) and edge-stitching single layers of wool for dimensional husks and leaf.   Project finished size is 12” x 12”. Perfect for a pillow, framed, or placed in a shadow box.
