Pin Cushion Party with Helen Frost
An AQG 2022 Quilt Show Education Event.
Be a “party girl” and join the fun while making cute and clever pincushions! All the machine sewing has been done for you; all you have to do is some hand sewing and gathering, turning and stuffing, gluing and embellishing. You’ll make a “spool of variegated thread,” a buttoned Four-Patch, a party hat, a velveteen emery strawberry, and an owl to watch over you while you sew. "Two pincushion classes are offered but each one is different."

Helen Frost's Bio:
Helen Frost considers herself a traditional quilt maker, preferring to explore the patterns of the past instead of inventing new ones. Her favorites are the Nine Patch, Sunshine & Shadow, and, of course, the Lone Star. These designs are traditional but the construction methods are anything but! She and her mother, Blanche Young, developed ground-breaking strip-piecing techniques for these patterns and more.
Helen is the co-author of several quilt books, including three based on the Lone Star design. She is proudest of her contributions to the book Grand Endeavors: Vintage Arizona Quilts and Their Makers, the state quilt project book for Arizona. She teaches at quilt guilds and conferences across the country. Helen and her husband live in Tucson, AZ, and are the parents of four children. They were delighted to welcome their first grandson and granddaughter in 2020.
