Timna Tarr Trunk Show and Workshop

The Boston Modern Quilt Guild is pleased to host Timna Tarr June 16 and 17 for a weekend trunk show and workshop. 

From Timna's website:

Timna Tarr comes from a long line of quilters but did not begin quilting until after studying art history in college. She bought her first longarm in 2001 and began quilting clients' quilts shortly thereafter. Since then she has custom designed and quilted thousands of quilts. Timna’s own nationally award-winning quilts are in private and corporate collections and have been seen in numerous exhibits, quilting magazines, and books. She is an in-demand speaker and teacher throughout the northeastern United States and is a member of her local guilds, Hands Across the Valley Quilters Guild and the Northampton Modern Quilt Guild.

Trunk Show

Our June meeting will feature a trunk show with Timna. This will be held June 16 from 1-3 PM at the Lexington Community Center, located at 39 Marrett Road, Lexington, MA.  


Timna will be teaching her Improvisational Map Quilt workshop on June 17 from 9:30-4:30 on the Brandeis University campus. In this workshop, participants will use fabric to capture a special location. Maybe it’s a favorite vacation spot, neighborhood, or hometown. Over the course of the workshop, participants learn both pattern-making and improvisational quilting techniques to create personal map quilts.

Space is limited. Registration is open to guild members only until 19 May when we will open the workshop to the public. If you are not a member and you wish to register before then, you will be placed on a waitlist and given a slot on a first-come, first-served basis at that time. No refunds will be given for cancellations unless a substitute can be found for your slot.

The cost of this six hour workshop is $100.
