Lakeside Quilters Limited, based in Oshkosh, presents a workshop with designer Pat Ehrenberg on Saturday, June 15. Ehrenberg will teach her Civil War star quilt, using modern tools to create a traditional look easily.
Although Ehrenberg lives in Ripon, her artistry has taken her to Washington, D.C., where she participated in the Smithsonian's Folklife Festival, and Chiba City, Japan. She has presented programs at the Civil War Museum in Racine, the Children's Museum in Appleton, the Madison Quilt Expo and the Wisconsin Folklife Festival. An educator as well as historian, Ehrenberg is a Heritage Skills Artist with the Wisconsin Arts Board.
The Civil War Star Quilt workshop meets from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. at the Coughlin Center on County Trunk Y. The fee is $25 per student plus $12 for the pattern. Class size is limited. To register or find out about supplies, call (920) 232-1229.
Lakeside Quilters has more than 100 members of all ages and abilities from Oshkosh and surrounding areas. The group meets on the third Wednesday of each month. Members post traditional and contemporary patterns as well as original designs at www.focol.org/LakesideQG.
