Mark Sherman

Remarkable Quilts

Born and raised in San Diego, California. Mark L Sherman began his quilting in 2001. His mother taught him how to sew and everything she had learned from Eleanor Burns about quilting. Since the beginning, Mark wanted to make his own quilts using his own style and concepts. As a result, he developed many unique quilting methods which he is now teaching to the quilting community.

With a lot of projects, from traditional to contemporary, different techniques and designs, and a handful of ReMARKable tips, Mark L Sherman is committed to spread a message of encouragement and positivity. It doesn’t matter what type of quilter you are, he will take you to the next level of creativity by teaching you how to let the artist that lives inside yourself shine through.

9am to 1pm ~ ReMarkable Machine Trapunto for the Timid Quilter $65 + $45 Kit9am to 1pm ~ ReMarkable Machine Trapunto for the Timid Quilter $65 + $45 KitJust imagine turning your quilt into a 3D piece of art. Quilting is the only art form that can do this from within. Whether you are a brand new quilter or someone who is experienced this class is perfect for both. I take all of the fear out of quilting using an open toe walking foot and your own home sewing machine. No free motion quilting experience is necessary. Once you see how easy my method is you will use it over and over again to impress family, friends or possibly even judges in a quilt show! There is a mandatory kit fee which includes all of those hard to find items. Included in the kit is a special pair of scissors that you will need to trim your wool. These scissors are made in Italy and come with a lifetime guarantee and free sharpening.
2pm to 6pm ~ ReMarkable Hand Applique by Machine $65 + $50 Kit2pm to 6pm ~ ReMarkable Hand Applique by Machine $65 + $50 KitMark has had a passion for applique since the day that he started quilting. At that time, he used a fusible method but did not like the fact that the appliques were stiff and difficult to quilt. The only other option was hand applique but with his very large hands he saw this as something almost impossible. Necessity being the mother of invention Mark came up with this method of applique and has used it ever since for all of his prize winning quilts. The stitches are perfect and the applique edges are turned. A hundred years from now his appliques will still hold up and be looking fantastic.

9am to 1pm ~ ReMarkable Stained Glass Quilt $65 + $40 Kit9am to 1pm ~ ReMarkable Stained Glass Quilt $65 + $40 KitWhat Mark has discovered over the years is that hand dyed fabric and stained glass have so much in common. Beautiful colors, striations and mottling are present in both. This makes it so easy to create stained glass quilts using fabric. We suggest you look at his quilt Wisteria, part of the permanent collection of The National Quilt Museum. You will be learning the same exact method Mark uses to make this gorgeous quilt. You will hand draw your own pattern using his photograph in this class but at the same time you will learn how you could easily do this same thing using your very own photo. You will create a piece of art for hanging on your wall at home that you can be proud of. Mark will give you a choice of completing your project in whichever method of applique you would like to use. This class includes a demonstration of how Mark makes his appliques.
2pm to 6pm ~ ReMarkable Fabric Weaving $65 + $40 Kit2pm to 6pm ~ ReMarkable Fabric Weaving $65 + $40 KitThis is the perfect class choice for those groups with a mix of traditional and art quilters. Both types of quilters love this class. Mark did not invent fabric weaving. It has been around for years. What Mark did do is turn fabric weaving into something ReMARKable and fun, fun, fun! You can make a stand alone project in hours, quilted and bound. Some of his students have even turned their projects into lovely tote bags and yet others have used his method of fabric weaving and added their unique touch to quilt projects. The sky is the limit what you can create with ReMARKable Fabric Weaving. Fabric weaving is beautiful and impressive without being one bit hard to accomplish. That is what makes it ReMARKable! There is a mandatory kit fee which will include everything you need to do your weaving project, including my gorgeous hand dyed fabric, your choice of color!
