Although the health of our nation is still uncertain at this time, but I'm optimistic that by June, we'll all be vaccinated and ready to gather in person for some quilting fun. Are you with me?
KT & Friends Retreat, Bennington, Kansas, June 22-25, 2021
We have an all new line-up of teachers for our hometown retreat this summer. Lisa Bongean, of Primitive Gatherings, and Debbie Maddy, of Tiori Designs are joining me for three days of learning and sharing. Both of these creators are fellow Moda designers.
Lisa's warm fabric palette and whimsical prints play nicely with her delightful quilt patterns, not to mention her yummy hand-dyed wools and projects. She'll share her tricks and techniques for both in her workshops. See what Lisa is up to at primitivegatherings.com.
Debbie is known for her Shibori hand-dyed cottons in beautiful shades of blues. Her lovely fabric collections echo these colors. She'll offer her experience on piecing and fabric design in workshops created just for our retreat. Learn more about Debbie and follow her blog at debbiemaddy.com.
