"Creativity Unleashed:  Modern Technology for Quilters"

Just what can you do with Modern Technology in quiltmaking? In the lecture Jennifer shares her experiences and designs using Adobe Photoshop Elements, Frax HD, (a fractal app for the iPad), and Electric Quilt along with inkjet printing on fabric. Many samples of quilts will be shown along with a few quilts created with more traditional techniques. The lecture is a powerpoint presentation / trunk show format. 

"I was a little worried that Jennifer's topic may be too technical for our guild members. Boy was I wrong! She is a great speaker and her slide show + trunk show was really engaging and fun. Everyone in the audience stayed interested and asked tons of questions, especially when she started showing how she created images and transferred designs to fabric on her home printer or by using services such as Spoonflower. I think we all saw the possibilities for incorporating a lot of new ideas into our quilting. I would highly recommend Jennifer to any Guild looking for a speaker who can open new creative doors for their members."
