PICTURE PIECING - Lecture and Trunk Show with Callie Hargiss

My name is Callie Hargiss. I have been sewing, Piecing, quilting, and crafting much of my life. I have enjoyed teaching others to sew for many years. I create custom quilts for my clients, am a consultant and pattern writer for a textile company, as well as helping my husband with our vintage car restoration business. Through my guild and my church I make quilts for veterans as well as local shelters and donate time and efforts to other charitable organizations.
As a member and current President of our local quilt guild, I have learned from some of the best quilters and National teachers. This is where I met Cynthia England. She taught me her "Picture Piecing" technique and asked me to become a teacher for her. I was thrilled to have this opportunity and take pleasure in teaching others this great technique.

"Picture Piecing " is a unique technique developed by Cynthia England to achieve detailed quilt imagery. This is not Paper Piecing or foundation piecing in the traditional sense,  This technique is much more! While you do use paper and Straight seams, Picture Piecing has several differences, allowing quilters to achieve detailed imagery more efficiently, with less frustration and fabric waste. Best of all there is no paper to pick out, no curved or inset seams,  patterns are reusable and you can CHEAT!

As a certified teacher for Cynthia England I can teach you this technique along with tips and tricks I have learned from Cynthia herself.  Also we can cover the basics of how you may create your own masterpiece from your favorite Photograph. See more on
