Please read below for all news in Quilting, Fiber, Fabric, Knit, Crochet and More!

 

As we approach mid November, we are wrapping up the final touches on the 2017 Festival Plans to open registration by the 1st of December. A new website, class edits, sponsorship details, Maker Space activities, Quilt Shop Hop Plans, Movie Room line up, 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge, Lunch with StevenBe, demos, exhibitor contracts…whew!!!

 

While we are wrapping it up, we are staying focused with no extra time for reviews. Instead, we are including a few creative ideas for unconventional ways to wrap your gifts this coming holiday season or just for that special someone. Do you get your inspiration from friends, teachers, classes, stores, tutorials or Pinterest? We’ll have many more ideas and sources of inspiration for you at the Festival.

Using the materials we all have on hand can make a gift extra special using fabric or hand painted paper, embellishing and tying with yarns, fibers and silk, cloth ribbons, Ric Rac, tassels etc.

We are including in this issue a surprise gift for 2 lucky winners, one for fabric lovers and the other for yarn lovers.
