I contacted a few of my favorite fabric companies to send a few items for giveaways in my class. They were each more than generous. Robert Kaufman, Art Gallery, RJR Fabrics and Timeless Treasures each sent a few bundles for me to giveaway during my class. I just might have one or two leftover after the class to giveaway here as well! A huge thanks to each of this great companies for their help for this event!
In addition to classes there will be a great quilt show. Because I'm teaching, I decided to enter a couple quilts. This is a huge change for me as I swore a couple years ago I wouldn't do it again. I'm entering my Whirlpool Quilt and Jumbo Star Quilt. We'll see how it goes. I have one more sleeve to sew on before I deliver them this weekend.
I'll be spending next week preparing and going over all my material for the class. I can't wait to share how it goes! Several readers have mentioned a desire for me to do a tutorial or online class about the Whirlpool Quilt. I'm still debating on how that might work and the best way to go about it. It's much easier to teach hands-on, in person. I wish you could all come next weekend!
