Trudy Cleveland, February 8 Speaker and Workshop

Trudy has been sewing since she was 12 years old and has progressively grown as asewing enthusiast. Starting a longarmer business meant she needed to find a way to document her journey. Taking photographs of her customer quilts seemed the logical step. Trying to perfect her photography of quilts led her to take digital photography classes at the local community college. The first class on “Digital Photography” opened up a new world and led to constantly improving on the technique of photographing quilts. She still maintains a longarming business and takes a  photograph of every customer’s quilt. She lectures and offers workshops on “How To Photograph Your Quilt.”


Trudy’s Zoom lecture on February 8 is “Shoot Your Quilt.”  Using only your smart phone Trudy discusses how to get professional looking images.  She also talks about why we should photograph our quilts, how to photograph them, and how to store and organize our photographs.


Workshop:   February 9 & 16,  10-1 each day, via Zoom
