Don’t miss my local quilt guild, the Kaw Valley Quilters Guild annual quilt show, held in Lawrence, KS, April 7 & 8, 2018. I’ll post the flyer so you can see more about it and the location. YES, we have our quilt show at the Toyota dealership. It’s held in the the most fabulous space, their detail shop! Absolutely immaculate, large, and full of great light. We can also fit a large amount of quilts, about 150 will be hanging, along with a wonderful silent auction, vendors, boutique of members stash items, and our featured quilter, Leslie Campbell. I’ll be there all weekend, running the silent auction and selling my notched rulers and regular rulers at a vendor table. Holler if you see me!!!
I will also be traveling to Concord, NC, to speak at the Carolina Longarm Association, April 13-14. We’ve got a full 2 days of events. The 2 page flyer is below that gives the details and contact information.
In May, I travel to Salt Lake City, UT, for the UQSM show. I’ll be teaching May 2-5, 2018. This is a wonderful show in Sandy, UT, at the Mountain America Exposition Center. You can find my list of classes if you look up ‘instructors’ on the website.
The first of June, I’ll be traveling to the Pittsburgh, PA, area for a talk, trunk show, and classes at the Little Foot Quilt Shoppe in Evans City, PA. They have a whole weekend of fun planned, starting with a trunk show and catered dinner on Thursday evening, May 31. I will be bringing along my favorite heirloom quilt for all of these trips.
Alrighty, that’s it for now and should keep me busy enough! Hope to meet you at one of these venues!
Just what you’ve asked for and so many have waited for! Finally, a video that shows you how I approach quilting vintage linens on the longarm. Thanks to Handi Quilter, who recently filmed a 45 minute segment on this process. I hope you enjoy the episode and don’t hesitate to ask questions. If you are interested in my rulers or lectures/workshops, find those tabs for more information. Thanks for visiting!
I was thrilled for my first entry EVER to win a 2nd place ribbon over the weekend! What a treat! Entered in the new, VINTAGE category, at UQSM, in Sandy, UT.
The front quilting really created a wholecloth on the back of the quilt. LOVE IT!
And that second green ribbon? Even more super thrilled because it was for, “Teacher of the Year”! Let’s just say I had a great weekend! Thanks to all of you who follow my journey!
Good morning! I’m often asked where I’ll be speaking. Unfortunately, I don’t have a calendar on my website (need to add!) and I’m not terribly organized in the paperwork department 😉 HEY, I just want to quilt all day!
Here are a few places I will be in the upcoming months. On October 17, I will be doing a lecture, trunk show, and demo at A1 Sewing Center, in Wichita, KS. Later that evening at 7 pm, I will be in Pratt, KS, to speak at the Pratt Area Quilt Guild, 619 N. Main. October 13, at 7 pm, I’ll be in Grand Island, NE, at the Prairie Pioneer Quilters guild, held at St. Leo’s Catholic Church. That next morning, October 14, I’ll be in a private home for a group demo (email me if you are interested).
November takes me to Tampa, FL, for a big, week long event. Here is the flyer and you can contact Melissa for more information and for sign up.
After this I have a couple months of break to work on my own big project. The big start of 2017 for me is Australia in February!! YES, that’s right, I’ll be teaching for Handi Quilter Australia! I am super excited and a bit star struck with all the fabulous quilters that will be presenting and visiting.
That’s it for now. I hope I’ll meet you somewhere on the quilt road!
