Oodles of Doodles Program
Audrey introduced our program speaker Gina Flikkie of "Oodles of Doodles" with lots of high praises. Audrey has taken some classes at the shop and has been smitten by the fun that Gina puts into everything.
In 2006 Gina got her first long arm, had to redo the milk house to make room for her growing interests and then in 2008 opened the shop in Riley. You will find her at 109 S. Broadway
Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday 10 - 5
Thursday 12 - 7
Saturday 10 - 2
If the shop happens to be closed during these hours, give her a call at 293-2580 and she will come over if at all possible.
Classes abound from hand embroidery, wool, mysteries, creative quilt group, fat quarter sales, sew in days, etc. Call or stop by to see what all is happening.
Every wondered what would happen if you put silk flowers, tulle and some imagination to work - well the pictured bouquet on top and the longer one Gina is holding below are just a few of the things you can do with these items.
Since I am not knowledgeable in all the things that Gina can do - I will not embarrass myself by trying to tell you what she does to get all of these. Enough to say that painting, dye, spray, spritz, water, sun, left over chenille , neon threads and fun on the long arm - with Gina all things are possible and probably will be used in one way or another, one day or another.
This lovely quilt brought quite a bit of conversation - Gina thinks she did a heart - the guild agrees for the most part with Audrey - it's a hat - right?
In 1827 Sadie & Joshua got married - and through the generations this wedding gown has been cherished and passed along to finally be put into this quilt that has been on display at some very important venues. Talk to Gina to find out the "real" history on this gorgeous quilt. Don't be surprised if you need a tissue during the telling.
