I would love to see you this weekend, March 28 – 30 at the International Quilt Festival in Chicago.

You’ll find Frieda Anderson and me in booth, #1224. Look for Artfabrik/Friestyle.
 
We’ll have our hand-dyed fabrics and threads, patterns, and quilts on display.
 
 
But wait! There’s more!
catandfoodI’d also like to give you a free cat pattern when you stop in at our booth. No cat hair included. And no need to buy anything either. Just stop in for your free, non-shedding cat pattern.
