Blue seas and sunny days are on the horizon again as Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Co. fame and I announce another fabulous cruise experience for 2017 - Jenny/Lynne Cruise 2017 . Both of our 2016 cruises sold out in record time, so if you're interested, please contact the cruise director noted in the attached information. We are so excited to hang out together again, teaching classes and visiting with all of the quilters. If you've never gone on a quilting cruise, this is your opportunity to do it all - make 2 lap quilts and 2 small projects, visit interesting ports of call, enjoy top notch entertainers (in addition to Jenny and me!) and laugh til your face hurts. Call your quilting friends and make it happen!
Me & My Stitches by Julie Letvin
Another one of my favorite designers is Julie Letvin of Me & My Stitches. When I first met Julie, I thought she was totally off her rocker, paper piecing tiny, tiny quilt blocks to frame for jewelry. Even if she was short a few stitches, it did not preclude me from falling for, drooling over and collecting her unique quilt charms. KTQ is now partnering with Julie to offer these adorable charms to you in KT fabrics. How cool it that? Her Charming 4 Club begins soon, so don't delay. Quantities are limited.
Travels with Cooper
As you read this, I'll be at the Pieces & Patches Quilt Guild in Jackson, MI or in Pinconning, MI at Bittersweet Quilt shop, July 27 and 28th. Robert is home minding the shop, so grandson Cooper, 14, is my trusty assistant. He hauls suitcases, holds, folds and packs quilts, helps sell product and LOVES counting money. We're hoping to have an extra day or two to see the sights of Michigan and enjoy some cooler weather. Check in next week for an update on our trip and a special giveaway of Coop's choosing.
