The Recessionista: DIY Quilts

The Recessionista: DIY Quilts

By Jamie Waugh
When Julie Floersch discusses her quilts, she could be talking about the science fiction novel A Wrinkle in Time or New Age studies of dimensions of reality.

She insists on the purity of quilting traditions and the earnestness of hand-crafted textiles. No time better than the recession to merge the two perspectives—and to learn how to quilt.

The SUNY Fashion Institute of Technology grad is teaching a series of quilting workshops at MAKE on the Lower East Side starting this January. She'll be teaching the crafts of block printing, knitting, and shoe making, among others.
