August 2012 is going to be a busy busy month!
Williamsburg,Virginia has been named the site of the FIRST EVER Quiltmaker Magazine 100 blocks retreat! In my OWN neck of the woods! Okay, well a short 6 hour drive away, but I can be there --- and hopefully SO CAN YOU!
Plans are just now jelling for this. So far the plans are that I will be the featured key note speaker on one of the nights--The OTHER key note speaker? None other than Jennifer Chiaverini herself! Back in the good old days of an email list called InterQuilt, Jennifer and I emailed back and forth a few times. I'm sure she doesn't remember me..LOL!
I also have been invited to teach 3 workshops while I am there...These workshops will be BRAND NEW CLASSES, as I am working on the quilts using the blocks from previous issues of 100 blocks!
Other teachers include Debbie Caffrey, Monique Dillard, Linda Howell, and Nancy Mahoney! There will be something for everyone, no matter what kind of quilting you like to do!
The Quiltmaker Crew is preparing all the info for the events team so we can get the publicity out and going. Watch for the latest issue of 100 blocks by 100 designers blog tour to begin on Nov 7th! When you get your issue, be watching for the ad or get more info at Quiltmaker.com :
And be sure to come back here TOMORROW, November 8th, for a sneak preview of MY block! Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 4, will be on sale hopefully near you on Nov. 15th--
You’ll want to leave a comment on that post as we will be drawing for winners who will receive copies of 100 blocks vol 4!
