Hey, whatcha gonna be doin on Friday, April 3rd?
What’s that? No plans you say? Do you live anywhere east of the Mississippi? You do? Then you’re in luck! Make plans now to join me for the most ‘machine-applique-fun’ allowed by law and get in touch with your feminine flirty side at the same time! (And for those of you living west of the Mississippi, don’t let that little ‘ole river stop you. Of course you’re welcome, too.)
That’s right! THE PLACE TO BE will be at the 22nd annual Quilters’ Heritage Celebration Show in Lancaster, PA on Friday, April 3rd in my “Ooh La La Petite Corset Quilt” class!
I’m sure you remember the original quilt, which was featured in the February, 2007 issue of McCall’s Quilting Magazine.
I’ll bet you thought, “Oooh, it’s so cute. I need to make that quilt.” But alas, you had other quilts in progress, and other priorities, such as work and family to attend to. But now is the time. This is the perfect opportunity to spend the day cutting, fusing, stitching, embellishing, and making your own adorable, girly corsets. Why? Just because. You don’t need a reason, or even an intended recipient. This quilt is just for YOU. It doesn’t have to match your decor. It won’t fit on your bed. You don’t have to know where you’re going to hang it. (Although, let me say, I know someone who made an adorable shower curtain of corsets.) There isn’t a specific reason why you need to make it. You’re going to make it just because it’s FUN!
So come and join me in class. We’ll be using all kinds of exciting Bernina presser feet you’ve probably never used before to attach the laces and trims. You can add ric rac. Add yarn. Add pom poms. Add sequins or pearls if like! Even tassels; strategically placed. We’ll be laughing and learning. Stitching and sharing. Embellishing and giggling. Creating cute corsets, just because. And there will be chocolate. What more could you ask for in a perfectamundo day of quilting?
There are still a few spots available in the class. Your name’s on one of them. Are you coming?
