Quilting Fractals At Will's Pub

Will's Pub is having its second Ladies' Night on Monday, January 9th. Starting at 8pm. There will be a free keg provided by Terrapin and a lesson on fractal stitches. So, if you're hoping to learn a new stitch or two, please bring a scrap of fabric and a needle and thread.

Eventually The Goal is:
To learn new stitches, and form a cohesive group of females that meets consistently enough to create a quilt. A quilt, hopefully, loosely based on the concept of quasi-self-similar fractals:

"A fractal has been defined as 'a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole. Quasi-self-similar fractals contain small copies of the entire fractal in distorted and degenerate forms... The satellites are approximations of the entire set, but not exact copies.'"

Come join us in making a distorted or degenerate form!

  • You might want to consider bringing an embroidery hoop, so that your fabric is taut while you are stitching, and you can stitch more evenly. (These are between $2-$5 at JoAnns or Michaels)
  • It's best if the color of your thread contrasts with your fabric, so if you have a dark fabric, choose a light thread color and vice versa.
  • Try to stay away from decorative threads for your first time. They're usually not as strong, and you don't want the thread snapping on you while you're learning!


  1. too bad i can't go..i guess i can mail chelsey something to add on to the quilt

  2. yes please! I think collaborating through mail could be wonderful. perhaps what I told you about book pages will work even better in this circumstance, too.
