This and That

How did you like that Red and White Quilt show in NYC? Wasn't that something?! Everyone from Martha Stewart to Ricki Timms have been talking about it. I sure would have loved to have seen it in person. I can't imagine all that work for just 6 days.... If you are like me and "wanted more"... here you go. Click here for a wonderful collection of links to this show- Flickr albums, videos, and blog post links; and here for some more wonderful viewing to music.... make yourself a cup of tea and sit for a while and enjoy this incredible show. A big Thanks to Kathy F. for sending me both of these links.

A few updates for you: we sent off 35 Leaf Bowls to the Local Organizing Committee in London for Quilt Ontario 2011. They are very pleased to have had such a good response from across Canada and report that they have already received enough bowls for each registrant and have extras as well. Thanks to all FQG members who participated in this endeavour- particularly Lois and Barb P. who made many...

The Nines and Vines quilt which we donated to the Stan Casssidy Foundation for raffle has now begun to make it's way around the province and we hear that ticket sales are brisk. It made it's first "public appearance" in Bathurst where interest was great and tickets were in demand. This quilt will be displayed at our Quilt Show April 29th and 30th and tickets will be available on it there.

Kathy Tidswell is again teaching at the edVentures summer program in Fredericton. Kathy has 4 classes this year: 1. Painting Backgrounds for Quilts or Embroideries, 2. Free Motion Embroidery: Painting with Thread,
3. Free Motion Embroidery: Flowers from Thread and 4. Free Motion Embroidery: Creating Textural Artwork. You can see photos of class projects and get all the details by clicking here. Remember if you register for a course before May 31, you will receive a 15% discount.

There are still a few spots open in Barb Foster's workshop "Pieced Diamonds" on April 16th. If you would like more info or to sign up, contact Valerie Moreland. This quilt requires one jelly roll or Bali Pop or you can cut your own strips from your stash. Barb's classes are always great fun, why not join in?? Please note this date is the Saturday BEFORE our monthly meeting, NOT the Saturday after, which is the usual day.
