Joyce Hughes Trunk Show: “My Journey Into Quilting”
May 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Thursday, May 6, 7:00 p.m., Zoom Meeting, Joyce Hughes Trunk Show: “My Journey Into Quilting”
Joyce Hughes (from Kintnersville, PA) is an award-winning self-taught quilter, fiber artist, and author. Her first quilt
was a tee-shirt quilt, which she enjoyed making, but felt limited in the ability to express her artistic capabilities.
Within several months, she began to design pictorial landscape quilts using raw edge applique, thread painting, and a
variety of embellishments. Never knowing the “rules” she broke a lot of them, but with exciting results! Amazingly,
her first art quilt, “Mother’s Day,” was entered into a national show and won a blue ribbon. This has led to numerous awards, recognitions, and opportunities in the quilting world. Several proud accomplishments for Joyce are
“McCall’s Quilt Designer 2012 – Professional Category” for McCall’s Quilting Magazine; endorser and sample maker
for Northcott and Timeless Treasures fabrics; and Ambassador for Mettler Threads and Brother Sewing. Currently,
Joyce has a second book, Thread Paint A Garden Quilt (released October 2020), focusing on raw edge applique and
thread painting to add shading, highlighting, and definition. Joyce’s first book, Creating Art Quilts with Panels, is
about working with fabric panels to create dimension and texture with threads and embellishments, creating a style
of her own! Joyce loves to teach and share her tips. One of her greatest accomplishments is when a student creates
their own artwork following Joyce’s technique of Dimensional Thread Painting.
