pamroccoThe East Bay Modern Quilters are excited to announce that our 2016 Stitch Modern workshop will be taught by Pamela Rocco. She has been quilting for more than 40 years and received her formative training when she was in Appalachia with the Teacher Corps in 1969 and met women who inspired her to learn how to quilt.

Many people are familiar with Pam through her monthly column, Words to Quilt By, in the Quilters Newsletter magazine. Her improv style is easily recognizable with her use of bright, bold, and ethnic fabrics.

Pam’s quilts have been heavily influence by other cultures and she feels that her best work is often ad libbed – made up on the spur of the moment using whatever is at hand.  She sees quilting as a salvage art, incorporating both new and used materials to play with form and color. In her world, almost anything can be incorporated into a quilt once you learn how to see design possibilities everywhere you look.

28-Broken Paths

In this one day workshop, you will explore how to design an original quilt using two techniques, viewfinder and thumbnail sketching. Learning to work more intuitively and improvisationally, you will explore all the elements of quilt design to create your own one of a kind quilt.
