Sew and Shoot is the perfect workshop: you sew a project, and then photograph your creation with your smartphone. We will make a “Clam Up” bag and learn how to put in a zipper into a quilted bag. You will have the cutest all- purpose bag completed at the end of class, ready to gift to someone, or keep for yourself! After completing our “Clam-Up” bag we will photograph it using our smartphones. Trudy will guide us thru the process of making professional looking photographs using hidden features in our smartphones. You can take this information and apply it to photographing your own quilts… and make that quilting POP!

We will sew and shoot…and come away with sewing tips and photography skills!

Educator’s Bio

Trudy Cleveland headshot

Trudy Cleveland

Trudy is both a professional longarm quilter and photographer. She loves to combine both her passions by photographing her quilts. She grew up in Orange County, learning to sew at 12 years old in junior high school, and progressed from sewing a gym bag to sewing garments, and then creating her own quilt designs. Her interest in photographing her projects led her to learn how to photograph her quilts to get professional looking results. Trudy’s work has been displayed at Road to California, Houston International Quilt Festival, and numerous other national quilt exhibits. She has taught nationally and has offered workshops in Australia via Zoom. Her philosophy that a workshop should be a “Fun-shop” is evident in her student’s smiles at the conclusion of her classes
