A Quilter's Sampler
The members of the New England Quilt Designers Cooperative are very excited about the upcoming Quilter's Sampler! The Sampler will be two days jam packed with classes, lectures, and the opportunity to shop the vendor's mall! It is being held this year on May 10 & 11 at The Courtyard by Marriott in Nashua, NH.
Go to www.aquiltersgathering.com and click on the link for the Sampler. You can check out detailed descriptions of all the classes and register on line. Here is the short version of what the NEQDC members are offering:
Beth Helfter will be doing the Thursday lunch lecture and teaching classes about embellishing quilts. Beth is a lot of fun...you won't want to miss this!
Judy Damon is taking on the lunch crowd for the Friday lunch lecture and also teaching. One class is about crazy quilting, and another is for those of us who don't know what to do with our boxes and bins full of scraps.
Cary Flanagan is teaching her "Cut, Shuffle, and Go" method of quilting. The technique isn't difficult to do, but you will be amazed at the awesome results!
Terri Sontra will be teaching some more creative ways to embellish quilts. You can also make her delicious "Chocolate Truffle Scarf".
Kristi Parker will be teaching an applique class that is done entirely by machine but the end result looks as if it done by hand. The picture above shows some examples of the technique.
We hope you can join in all the fun! In order to sign up for classes you must register before May 1st
See you at the Quilter's Sampler!
