If you’re attending the Quilt Expo in Madison, please stop into our booth (#835) and check out my new pattern called Acorn. Right in time for fall, this little quilt has directions for making a woven collage for the top of the acorn and patterns for all those leaves as well. Doesn’t it look like it’s wearing a hat? Or is that just me?
Frieda and I spent yesterday setting up our booth at Quilt Expo in Madison WI. We open today and expect to be overwhelmed by rabid quilters dashing for fabric and thread. Or at least we hope so. Please stop in and say “hi”. Don’t worry. We are right in the front of the hall (#835) so we have an easy exit if the rabid quilt makers get too…. rabid.
Want to meet me in Mad Town this weekend? The annual Quilt Expo is taking place in Madison, WI September 4 – 6 and I’ll be there along with Frieda. Madison is a great city and the quilt show is packed with quilts to see and vendors like me. You’ll see Frieda and me at our booth right next to the Nancy’s Notion’s booth. Stop by and say hi!
Last week I taught at one of my favorite venues, Quilters Affair in Sister, OR. The mountainous area is beautiful, the people are fun, and the whole town turns out to hang quilts on their doorsteps. Here you see the side of the Stitchin Post quilt shop.
This fantastic quilt retreat and show was started by Jean Wells. It’s a week full of quilts, friendship, and discovery. Here you see Jean with her lovely sister, June Jaeger, also a quiltmaker and instructor at Quilters Affair. Hope you can visit Sisters next year. I know I’ll be there!
Soon I take off to teach a week-long set of classes in beautiful Sisters OR. At the Quilter’s Affair symposium we’ll view hundreds of quilts displayed at the largest outdoor quilt show in the world. And I’ll introduce hundreds of my students to the fine art of fusing.
I’m a big believer in education and can’t wait to meet my new students. As a student myself I know the more I learn the better I feel. Would you like to feel better too? Then check out these classes on Craftsy while I’m off to Sisters. The classes are currently on sale and I know how taking a new class cheers you up.
Better jump in the car and get a move on! Today is your last chance to attend the International Quilt Festival in Chicago. Frieda and I have had great fun visiting with all our quilt friends like you at this show. Please stop in at the Artfabrik booth #1025 and say hello.
And don’t forget to see the Chicago School of Fusing exhibit too. It looks great as do all the other exhibits of wonderful quilts. Take note: if you can’t make this year’s show, reserve last week of March, 2015 for next year’s show. That’s in early Spring, when I’ll look fresher.
