August 2022 Meeting

  • Date: August 20, 2022
  • Program: No Need to Re-Invent the Color Wheel
  • Speaker: Bethany Janssen; The Sewing Center

Our August speaker is Bethany Janssen, owner of The Sewing Center in Wichita, KS. She is a lifelong artist and former high school art teacher.

Bethany has developed arts programming for Wichita’s public school system, worked in costume design for theater, and also managed community art projects. 

In her presentation, Bethany will teach quilters a better understanding of how to unify the three sets of color: primary, secondary and tertiary. Whether you are a self-proclaimed “power clasher” or more neutral in color taste, the color wheel will help better determine what is a complimentary choice.

There will be hands-on activities for those in attendance.
