Patchwork Quilt Club

Patchwork Quilt Club was formed in November 2014 and operates under the Department of Arts of the Komi National Library.

The club leader is handicraft designer Luibov Maksimenko. Her background is in technology and engineering of clothing manufacture. She worked as instructor in manufacturing material technology in the Syktyvkar College of Technology. Her interest in quilt making goes back to 1988 when she discovered the patchwork sewing technique. In 1995 Liubov took an elementary course in patchwork quilt making from master Raisa Bryliakova in Saint-Petersburg. In 1997 Liubov Maksimenko won Master of the Year Exhibition in the Patchwork nomination. Now she runs her own course in this needlework technique within the Third Age Project sponsored by the United Russia Party.

Course participants, interested in communicating with like-minded people, improving their skills and enjoying creative work, are invited to join the Patchwork Quilt Club. Club members do not only design and make new things (decorative panels, cushions, textile pictures, handbags, napkins, pins and brooches), but also give a new life to old garments hidden in 'grandmother's trunks'.

What you can expect at our meetings:

  • master-classes;
  • exhibitions;
  • tea parties;
  • field trips.

Who can be a member:

Age: 50+

How often do we meet:

  • classes of the Third Age Project - every Sunday, 10:00 - 13:00;
  • club meetings - every second Sunday.
