Fun with Raw Edge Collage - Save the Koalas!



It will be ten years since Nick & Clare (the new owners of Santa Cruz Vac & Sew) visited Australia.  It touched their souls, which makes it even harder to see the devastating fires ravage Australia.  Sandi Daroza, our visiting in-house resident artist from Rogerslane Studios, will teach this exclusive event showcasing the magic of raw edge collage while making a Koala print of whimsical quilt art, using bold, bright fabric and a dash of creativity.  And even better: pattern download and a portion of class fees will be donated to the Australian wildfire efforts!  



Supplies you will need:
- Downloaded Koala pattern from sewquirky

- 1 fat quarter or equivalent for the background.
- Several 1/2 yd cuts of fabric: black & whites, 6-8 bright solids, 6-8 prints (large and small), polka dots, scraps of various fabrics
- fussy cut flowers, birds, fish, butterflies, and other motifs to enhance your designs. 
- water soluble blue (Elmer's washable glue stick) or Glue-Baste-It (available at the store)
- freezer paper
- pencil
- sharp scissors

Koala pattern can be downloaded online. Visit the shop to see Sandi's other works and templates that are used for her regular Fun with Raw Edge Collage class.

Instructor: Sandi DaRoza
Instructor Bio: A lifelong artist, Sandi learned to enjoy sewing at a very young age with her beloved mother, whose creative hands were never still. She revels in the rich medium of fabric, from the vast array of bold hues and patterns to the interplay of textures and stitches - even the sounds of shears gives her great pleasure! For Sandi, quilting is about listening carefully to the fabric and translating its story into beautiful and whimsical art. Sandi is a passionate teacher. Sharing her quilts and techniques, Sandi's goal is to inspire each of her students to go out of their comfort zone and enjoy being creative.
