Starch Appliqué Method – zig-zag is a thing of the past!

kurse/id_830.jpg Starch appliqué is an appliqué method that uses a freezer paper template and spray starch to create a finished edge appliqué. The template is then removed before stitching, and can be finished either by hand or machine with a straight or blind stitch instead of a traditional zig-zag stitch. A small portable pressing board will be assembled in class, which is needed for the starch appliqué method.

Log Cabin - Logs Let Loose

kurse/id_848.jpg Log Cabin is an old and much loved pattern, and is endlessly versatile. Many of you will have made one, or more – here’s an opportunity to explore the possibilities, and take an improvisational approach.

In this one-day class, we will start with drafting the basic block, look at the structure, and variations on the original block. We will calculate the cutting necessary for this block.

Next we will piece an absolutely perfect (and square) Log Cabin that is entirely self-correcting as you sew, you can’t get ‘lost’ in direction, and requires no squaring off . This very accurate method is faster in the end, and is suitable for all Log Cabin variations.

Then we will put away the cutters & rulers, and see just how versatile Log Cabin can be! We will look at improvising both the colour placement and the construction, for quilts that are unique and energetic. We will investigate the possibilities of piecing onto a foundation for futher improvisation.
We will also look at the possibilities of making our unique Log Cabins from fabrics other than patchwork cotton.

Students will make a classic, and totally accurate Log Cabin block, and many improvised blocks exploring variations in colour, shape, and structure. Students will have the opportunity to design quilts that are unique, and respond to the quilters own fabric and style.

This class is partly based on my research into antique Irish Quilts, where improvisation was prized.

Playing with Fibonacci

kurse/id_850.jpg Leonardo Fibonacci was an Italian mathematician, considered to be the most talented western mathematician of the Middle Ages.

The Fibonacci numbers are a sequence of numbers named after him. They start with 0 and 1, and each Fibonacci number equals the sum of the two preceding Fibonacci numbers. In nature, they occur as spirals in flower heads and the shells of snails, the most famous being the nautilus shell.

We will be playing with 8 different fabrics cut according to the Fibonacci series. They are sewn together, cut again after Fibonacci and rearranged. This little game of cutting and twisting can be repeated several times. The result will always be regarded as balanced and aesthetically appealing.

Several of her fine pieces of art will be exhibited, among which the Best of Show winners "Nocturnal Garden", "Spring of Desire" and her latest masterpiece "ElaTED", now in the permanent collection of The National Quiltmuseum in the USA, exclusively on loan for NADELWELT Karlsruhe. This year Ted Storm celebrates working with textiles for 50 years, and 30 years in quilting. It is her chosen moment this to be the final exhibit and line-up of her quilts in one exhibition. She will continue teaching Masterclasses in the Netherlands (www.quiltsocieteit.nl) and Germany (www.millersquilting.de) and matching to the class theme individual quilts will be shared.


+ Cas Holmes: Common Land and Tea Flora Tales
Cas Holmes

ausstellungen/ID3.jpg Cas Holmes work is a haunted land full of ‘the shadows of marks made by man in the earth’, of ‘reflections in water and flooded fields’, of ‘gardens and seasons changing’, is one that is often missed by the passer-by and artist alike, but it is a rich and rewarding place. It is an inspirational well of harmony and balance, as well as of conflict and division. Something shared and something complementary, as she says herself: ‘We have an intimate relationship with the land, but equally share “common connection”.’ Cas helps others to search and explore the world of the found and the displaced, the cast aside, or perhaps just the mislaid. It is a rich vein of potential and a revelation of connections between … our human world … [and] the world we refer to as natural. (John Hopper)
Additional information: She is author of 'The Found Object in Textile Art' (2010) 'Stitch Stories' (2015) and co-author of 'Connected Cloth' (2013)
The exhibit also includes Tea-Flora-Tales and ongoing global collaboration.


+ Judy Coates Perez: Creative Alchemy
Judy Coates Perez

ausstellungen/ID4.jpg My work is inspired by my love of nature as well as my life
experiences. Like an alchemist, I have often used my artwork to
process painful emotions or difficult periods of my life by creating
artwork that transforms the ugliness into beauty.
I love to paint, and experiment with traditional art materials on
fabric and then stitch meaning into the imagery through quilting. All
of my art quilts begin with white fabric and are painted with either
textile paint or acrylic ink and then machine quilted on a domestic
sewing machine.


+ Sieben/12: Patterns
Sieben/12

ausstellungen/ID5.jpg Seven quilters took on the challenge of making 12 quilts each: on one topic and in prescribed formats.
Pia Welsch had invited 7 long-term participants of her “Quilt-Werkstatt” (Quilt Workshop) to face this challenge . All seven dedicated themselves to the subject of “pattern” in its many manifestations. Where do you recognize patterns, how do they look, which techniques are suitable for representing them?
Even the hanging of the quilts was prescribed so that uniform pictures will be presented to the viewers, however with quite different content. The viewers will discover different theme-related patterns that are meant to provoke contemplation.
Monika Fischer, Renate Freudenberg, Claudia Jochum, Tania Krug, Gabriela Martinez, Mario Pietrini and Martina Wahl are the quilters who were ready to embark on this adventure.


+ Deutsch Afghanische Initiative e.V.: Gardens around the World
Deutsch Afghanische Initiative e.V.

ausstellungen/ID6.jpg The Exhibit, Gardens Around the World, is the result of a collaboration between European and Afghan women. Participants in Europe prepared the raw material using a myriad of techniques. Afghan women in Laghmani then had 3 months to embellish this work with their embroidery. Finally, the European artists put their finishing touches on the Gardens. This cooperation was documented step-by-step so that one can see the process, hidden to the eye in the final composition. We invite you to be amazed and surprised by this wondrous cultural exchange.


+ Annette Bamberger: From Picture to Quilt
Annette Bamberger

ausstellungen/ID7.jpg Before I started to deal with textile art, I drew and painted. In the series "From Picture to Quilt" I show quilts where I reinterpret my paintings painted about 25 years ago. In doing so, I did not want to make copies of the images and to reflect them as accurately as possible, but I wanted to express the ideas and statements of these images with new, time-related, textile means.
Some of the quilts show contemplative tranquillity through the clear surface composition, while others express vivid dynamics with strong colour tones.


+ Isabelle Wiessler: Trees - Witnesses of Time
Isabelle Wiessler

ausstellungen/ID8.jpg Nature, Life, Strength and Durability – there is hardly another symbol that could be as meaningfully as the tree. The color and the structure of a tree bark, the repeating impact of the seasons and the mood, which comes through weather and daytimes, served already many times as inspiration for paintings, drawings and sculptures.
Mixed-media artist Isabelle Wiessler uses trees as well, as a rich source of inspiration. For a long time, trees are fascinating her. Their very slow growing appears in a contrast to our fast-moving world. Isabelle wishes to express those inspirations, thanks to textile and not textile materials. Her aim is to give room for everyone’s own imagination. For her work, she uses a variety of materials and techniques. She is fascinated by the endless possibilities of lines, shapes and structure, which are given through a combination of stitching and mark making. This way she creates unique stitched pieces with a three-dimensional aspect.


+ Elisabeth Nacenta-de la Croix: Change in Continuity
Elisabeth Nacenta-de la Croix

ausstellungen/ID9.jpg Since 1999 I work in my little studio situated in the old town of Geneva
(Switzerland), not far from the Leman lake which I see every day.
Living by this wide lake seeing its moving waters, wandering in parks
which offer great varieties of trees more than a hundred years old is a
great source of meditation. The changing colors of the water, its movements and reflections are fascinating: always the same but every time different. The change in continuity is for me a continuous source of wonder. It is what inspires me. In this exhibition I propose different ways to express this idea, with collages, quilting, even with painting.
I am a textile artist working in Art quilt whose works mix contemporary
techniques with more traditional constructions.


+ Netzwerk Textil³ : "DIALOG 1„
Netzwerk Textil³

ausstellungen/ID10.jpg The Textil³ network was founded in North Germany in 2014 with the aim of exchanging ideas and realizing projects and exhibitions. The approach of the four artists participating in the exhibition, who come from embroidery, sewing, painting and patchwork, is as varied as their textile work. For the project in "DIALOG 1" the topics are color, textile and non-textile materials and three-dimensionality.
Through an intensive exchange, a mutual artistic stimulation happens and new paths are taken, in which the experimental work with textile and non-textile materials as well as the combination of old and new techniques will be the main focus. Some artwork from the project TEXNET1 will also be shown. For this project the artists collaborate with artists from France, Norway and Canada through the Internet. The premiere of this project will take place in Alsace in autumn.


+ Monika Neumann und Heike Rüeck: Two x 0ne- on World Tour
Monika Neumann und Heike Rüeck

ausstellungen/ID11.jpg The imaginary world tour takes us through many countries and regions. The artistic rendering of the trip is represented by 2 works each with the dim 50 x 50 cm. The common denominator is a piece of the same fabric in different sizes that is integrated into each exhibit. But each is different in the interpretation, materials and technic .
Heike Rueck shows a typical piece of the local flora of the region and country in her works while Monika Neumann highlights the typical colours, temperament and emotions of the countries and regions.
All exhibits are exclusively made with material that has been hand dyed or is of natural origin. Apart from that you will find strange materials such as dryer fluff, vegie nets, wood and similar objects in use.
All works include traditional and modern aspects of quilting art. A total of 24 pieces were created in this way and are presented by pair.


+ farbSTOFF: COLOUR and CLOTH
farbSTOFF

ausstellungen/ID12.jpg It's already more than 23 years that Heide Stoll-Weber started the "farbSTOFF"-Studio with her hand-dyed fabrics. Shortly after that she started working with Christine Brandstetter to provide quilters with new and unique hand-dyed fabrics. At last Heike Dressler joined to support them with her knowledge as a garment engineer. All of them are international well-known textile artists and show her love for abstract works and piecing technique in this exhibition.


+ FreiScherler: Party with Venus
FreiScherler

ausstellungen/ID13.jpg Venus as a symbol of womanhood… This is the topic of the most recent exhibition of the FreiScherler group. It has been a while since works of this group with currently 5 members have been shown. They are back now with their homage to womanhood in relation to various female perspectives: women in the workplace, women in different societies, women in relationships, and female myths. While quite a few of the works have an identical format, their artistic implementation and design is as individual as the artists themselves: Jutta Böhmler-Hahn, Daniela Conrad, Angelika Henrichs, Rita Schaffer and Gabriele Schultz-Herzberger. They have known each other for 15 years and shown their work in a number of joint exhibitions.


+ 2017 World Quilt Competition XXI: 27 Quilts from Germany

+ Janine Heschl: Extinction is forever
Janine Heschl

ausstellungen/ID15.jpg The exhibition ‚extinction is forever‘ by Janine Heschl addresses the subject of extinction and conservation of species.
The realistic portraits of animals facing extinction carry a sad message and the aim is to create awareness in how we treat nature and by which means we share this planet with the wildlife. The main focus of the textile portraits is, next to the realistic illustration of the subject, the look in the animals’ eyes. It should remind the viewer of their responsibility towards planet earth and tells a story of pain and sorrow.
Time is running out, but it is not yet too late to protect our wildlife and to conserve it. Because once they are gone, they are gone forever!


+ KiK - Kunst im Köllertal: Seven Artists - one Artwork
KiK - Kunst im Köllertal

ausstellungen/ID16.jpg This extraordinary quilt has been created in corporation by members of the artist group "Kunst im Köllertal" (KiK) and had been initiated by one of their members, Birgit Schüller. Seven artists of different styles at the age of 16 to 85 gathered to create a piece of fabric sized 140 x 330cm, each by her own artistic means. After the given time of 2 hours the enthusiastic efforts of all members had led to a colourful artwork which was completed by Birgit Schüller's Longarm-Quilting. Take a look at this fantastic composite quilt at NADELWELT Karlsruhe!


+ Jana Sterbova: Material Diversity
Jana Sterbova

ausstellungen/ID18.jpg Since 2008 organizes Art Quilt Club CZ yearly a new series focused on material as main theme. The compulsory material chosen for the art quilters must be always something untypical with at least 30% use on the quilt surface. Jana Sterbova is from the beginning at the organizing and shows for the first time her complete gallery of the material diversity quilts throughout the last 10 years. Cleaning towel, rust dyed fabrics, silk, lace, wool, linen, jeans and denim, leather, pearls and beads, velvet and tweed – all of these being a real challenge for design, technique and quilting.


+ Art Quilt Harbour: Trees
Art Quilt Harbour

ausstellungen/ID19.jpg For the 2017 collection of AQH Group (Art Quilt Harbour, CZ) a very broad theme of Trees was chosen. Various parts and details of the tree, leaves, roots, trunk, tree like solitaire or alleys. Mixed media technique enabled each of the authors to create several art quilts with no further limits, given was only size 80 x 110 cm vertically and natural cork as accent material to support the natural character of the theme. On average 3 quilts per author were made to show different approach and technique involved. The AQH group is formed by seven Czech SAQA members that meet several times a year a launch regularly a unique collection of 20-25 quilts together. www.artquiltharbour.com


+ Limeria Textilkunst-Hamburg: Textile.Dialogues. 1 and 2
Limeria Textilkunst-Hamburg

ausstellungen/ID20.jpg The eight artists of LIMERIA Textilkunst-Hamburg have devoted themselves, in their two group projects, to a textile dialogue. In their first body of work, they created miniatures which in their entirety are characterized both by their colour-splendour as well as by their great diversity. Their second body of work shows how each artist, in her own style and with her own handwriting, has created her own artistic work from the works of the others. These exciting projects offer a lot of inspiration to other textile artists.


+ Geta Grama: The sky is the limit
Geta Grama

ausstellungen/ID21.jpg A collection of favorite quilting techniques that shows the versatility of quilting, which allows each element of a quilt to tell its own story and be the star. A journey at the end of which everyone is a winner: the fabric (which emphasizes the design), the batting (with its hidden and unexpected power), the thread (as powerful as fabric), the design that brings them all together and the quilters - who enjoy the process, push their limits, find their strengths, and express their creativity.


+ Hanne Rohlfs: A Piece of mine - That's me
Hanne Rohlfs

ausstellungen/ID22.jpg I go through the world with open eyes. Events, experiences, meetings and memories shape my thoughts. Colours come to life, feelings are stimulated and pictures appear. I am sensitized by stimuli around me. Working with colours and colour combinations awakened my interest in different methods and the use of different materials. It is often a long process until the work is completed. I leave the interpretation to each individual viewer.


+ Anke Pradel-Schönknecht: Quilt meets Painting and Relief
Anke Pradel-Schönknecht

ausstellungen/ID23.jpg In my exposition I want to show the variety of possibilities of traditional and modern textile art. It is important for me to include the theme „needle and thread“ into my work and to create new structures.
Those structures raise a relief on the quilt or the canvas and create a third dimension. The central topic „textile relief“ is a continuing working process I always discover new techniques and new ways of expression. On my canvas backgrounds I´m combinating my new developed structures with other materials such as plastic, metal threads, found objects and paper. The most important point for me is to model and paint with materials. My sewed fabric pieces are necessary to complete my artwork and to give a distinctive surface to my results, paintings and quilts equally.


+ Roter Faden: From One to the Other
Roter Faden

Nothing is as steady as the change, as already Heraklit said.
But what is the exact meaning of change? Is it alteration, is it development, is it a process? Is change a sudden, major incident or rather the tiny, hardly recognizable steps which only grow into something big in the retrospection?
In the exposition „From One to the Other“ these reconsiderations are elaborated from different points of view. There is no thematic restriction how to approach the project – which could either be naturalistic, historical or even experimental. Each artist chooses her individual focus and defines its elaboration. This includes the choice of materials and techniques in order to interpret her thoughts in a textile way. Following the theme of the exhibition any piece of artwork implicates the change „From One to the Other“.


+ Veronika Schlüsselburg: Urban Life
Veronika Schlüsselburg

ausstellungen/ID26.jpg The created workpieces from Veronika Schlüsselburg describe everyday situations, hustle, interpersonal relationships in the everyday life of city residents. They show the usual hectic during rush hour, nameless faces, crowded streets, but not to forget the loneliness of many despite the neighborhoods in depressing blocks. Veronika Schlüsselburg uses several material, print- and color technics in order to express herself. She glues, recolors and sews her workpieces, which are hereby created to be textile collages.


+ Quilt around the World: My Year of Design – A Journey of Making and Thinking
Quilt around the World

ausstellungen/ID28.jpg My Year of Design is a growing collection of diverse design exercises inviting quilters and other textile crafters to embark on a stimulating journey of thinking and making off the beaten paths of quiltmaking, to challenge themselves and their ways of working and to experience new textile adventures and surprises. Various design elements and principles as well as specific aspects from eras in art history, architecture, mathematics and music, but also the effects of coincidence and mystery on quilt making are being examined in an entertaining way opening up unprecedented opportunities for new textile experiments. This exhibition shows a selection of current works designed by several MYoD-participants with different quilting and geographical background. We are very happy that we were able to win Heidemarie Mönkemeyer, well-known textile artist from Ottersberg in Northern Germany, for My Year of Design. She is our guest artist presenting new works inspired by the design exercises of the My Year of Design series.


+ Swiss Silkers: The Magic of Silk
Swiss Silkers

ausstellungen/ID29.jpg Silk is a wonderful and challenging material. It is lightweight, which allows it to flow . It’s luminescence and softness make it flexibile enough to be used in many ways. Silk can be sewn into marvellous garments, or used for quilting and for knitting… the list is endless. But, silk is also a challenge. Whether applying dyes or sewing, there are always surprises or happy accidents. The dyes travel on the silk and flow where you hadn’t intended them to go; or the silk slides off your sewing machine when you’re trying to create.
This challenge is highly fascinating to the Swiss Silkers, a group of 22 silk artists from Switzerland, who are a chapter of Silk Painters International (SPIN ). They come together to explore the challenges of silk. They never tire of searching for new techniques and exploring the boundless ways silk can be used. Whatever the discovery, it’s like walking a tightrope in their search of mastering the art of painting on silk. Come to the Swiss Silkers exhibition THE MAGIC OF SILK at Nadelwelt 2018 in Karlsruhe. There, you will find a selection of the Swiss Silkers artwork. We look forward to seeing you there.


+ Art Quilt Award 2017: "Zoom - when visual perception changes……"
Art Quilt Award 2017

ausstellungen/ID30.jpg The competition of the Museum Nordwolle in Delmenhorst and the
Quilters-Insel shows 24 works from 23 international artists. Our View is based on the recording and processing of visual stimuli, in recognition of elements and their interpretation by comparison with memory. The selection of relevant information and it's perception takes place through the functions of the eye and brain. During this process of allocation, perception happens: the object is placed in a specific known category. If the recognition of objects shifts through drastic changes such as enlargement, reduction, change of perspective, etc. It is no longer possible to assume what we see is representational, and imagination and fantasy takes over. By this transformation and change, the association of the viewer has nothing to do with the object. The selected quilts show creativity, innovative techniques and materials as well as professional design.

+ Wiebke Maschitzki: Sailing, Wind and Waves
Wiebke Maschitzki

ausstellungen/ID32.jpg In her works Wiebke Maschitzki combines her two passions: sailing and
quilting and transfers her encounters with water, wind and waves to fabric. She uses traditional patterns varied by free cutting and quilting. Herr favourite materials are denim, linen, silk and canvas.


+ Rita Dijkstra: Joy of Colours
Rita Dijkstra

ausstellungen/ID33.jpg The work of Rita consists of contemporary modern quilts, in which color and shape play an important role. She prefers hand dyed fabrics, often combined with silk. Sometimes the hand-painted cloth forms the basis of the design of the quilt, other times it is a theme for a contest or exhibition. She is looking for contrasts, both in shape and in color. The fabrics are sometimes processed extra with textile paint or oil crayons, for example, by screen printing, templates or stamps. She also uses materials such as organza, angelina and angelwire. In general, the quilts are extensively quilted to add an additional dimension to work. Manual embroidery is added if necessary.
Experiments with new paint techniques, such as mono printing, breakdown printing, eco printing and shibori dyeing ensure that the quilting remains a new challenge for her.


+ Heidi Drahota: Stuff for Thoughts
Heidi Drahota

ausstellungen/ID34.jpg Great internationally wellknown textile artists from around the world - from Taiwan to Argentina – are covering in their works the broad thematic range of the working conditions of workers in the textile industry in Bangladesh and other countries, on issues such as child labor and flight due to missing work in their own country, to our consumer behavior.Heidi Drahota curated this international textile exhibition as part of the awarding of the International Nuremberg Human Rights Award to Amirul Haque Amin, the president of the National Textile Workers' Union in Bangladesh. For the first time it was shown there in 2016 on the occasion of the Nuremberg Peace Conference.Many artists present their works for sale and support the award bearer’s work with up to 100% of the proceeds.
The exhibition is sponsered by Handiquilter.


+ Hildegard Müller: Pas de Deux
Hildegard Müller

ausstellungen/ID35.jpg For many years, Hildegard Müller has dealt with fabric as basic material as it offers diverse, creative possibilities from coloring to shaping of three-dimensional structures to the insertion of text or non-textile elements.
She started making traditional-style quilts, but then she learned more and more dyeing and construction techniques and developed her own style to create art quilts. She mainly hand-dyes the materials for her work, fabrics like cotton, satin, velvet or silk, as well as different types of paper and most of the yarns are also hand-dyed. She likes to create several works on one topic, so “Pas de Deux” shows a variety of diptychs, created with hand-dyed materials and various techniques. Impulse for creating works for “Pas de Deux” was watching the classical dance. The two-part works correspond, one work goes with the other, it mirrors or complements the other work. Her works are inspired by impressions from nature and environment.


+ John Kubiniec: A New Spin on Drunkard's Path
John Kubiniec

ausstellungen/ID36.jpg Quilt blocks have been updated and adapted for as long as people have been quilting. John enjoys taking traditional quilt blocks and modifying them. This exhibition will feature a number of quilts from his book, A New Spin on Drunkard's Path, where he incorporates traditional quilting blocks (rail fence, half-square triangles, and sixteen-patch) as part of the Drunkard's Path Block. In addition to the quilts from the book other quilts will be featured which explore variations on the Kaleidoscope and Spider Web blocks. ­These quilts also feature his unique approach to free-form ruler work on the longarm quilting machine.
