Deb Karasik will be speaking on paper piecing at our July Guild meetings. The Wednesday workshop is “Turning Over a New Leaf” and Thursday’s workshop is “Batik Wheels”. We still have a little room in each of these workshops. If you’ve never tried paper piecing this would be a good opportunity to do a project that isn’t too big . Try it, it’s easy!
Deb started her real quilting passion in November of 2000, when she got a call from one of her daughters, advising Deb, (the daughter…not Deb!) she was pregnant with triplets. She picked up the quilting bug with a passion and joined her local quilt guild (the San Francisco Quilters Guild).
It was at the SFQG that she met Janet Mednick, who would later help her write a book for the American Quilters Society called “QuiltMavens Perfect Paper Piecing”.
She has since written “Quilts With Attitude”, also published by AQS, and is currently working on her next book.
Now based in Durham, North Carolina, Deb is quilting, teaching and writing professionally, and her travels take her worldwide to share her passion for contemporary quilting, meeting new people, and sharing her knowledge with quilters everywhere.
