The class exceeded all expectations – fabulous & the classroom experience was practically perfect in every way. The meals were outstanding, as usual!” – Diane E.

Known for her stunning whole cloth painted art quilts, Judy Coates Perez recently taught a three day workshop for us at Hudson River Valley Art Workshops. Everyone agreed that three days were not enough time for all the gems that Judy had to offer. They kiddingly asked if maybe the next incoming class wouldn’t mind if they stayed in just one corner of the studio for a few more days! Unfortunately jobs and schedules prevented this from being a serious option.

These are some of the great stamps that Judy has made and brought for the class to experiment, but she also showed them how to make their own.
