What’s coming up in February?

1450 Ocean’s first studio artist in residence, Luke Haynes, will be taking the month to work on his photo-realistic quilts and other fabric interventions.

On Saturdays on Feb. 8, 15, and 22 he’ll be leading community quilt making workshops with the final product to be given to a local charity.

Take part in design, cutting, piecing, quilting and more on the shared sewing machines, or bring your own projects and questions for Haynes.

Visit the fruits of his (and your) labors in a culminating quilt exhibit the evening of March 1. Learn more at lukehaynes.com.
