Have you heard? Registration is open for several of our 2017 live and in-person events:
- The School of Art Fashion Boutique and Perfect Mix Licensing EXPRESS in Lakeland, FL this March
- Classes at the Original Sewing & Quilt EXPO in Atlanta, GA; Lakeland, FL and Cleveland, OH this spring
- And our Heirloom & Beyond: Essentials to Indulgences licensing retreat in Arlington, TX this August
So how should we celebrate? With a fun giveaway, a course!
Our event partner Shannon Fabrics has sent us the most adorable Wee One Cuddle® Quilt Kits to give away. You guys, this is seriously the softest, plushest, most adorable little baby blanket!
In fact, Martha Pullen instructor Connie Palmer likes this quilt so much she is even teaching students how to make it in a special Cuddle® Blanket Workshop at the Original Sewing & Quilt EXPO events this year. You can make the baby-sized blanket in class – a perfect gift any time of year – as you explore Connie’s tried-and-true methods for cutting, stitching and controlling the fuzz (that’s the fun part!). Registration for the workshop is already full in Atlanta, Lakeland and Cleveland (it’s a popular one!), but class registration for other EXPO locations will be available approximately 12 weeks prior to the event date.
We also have another sweet Cuddle® blanket project in store for students at the Heirloom & Beyond: Essentials to Indulgences licensing retreat in Arlington August 18-23.
We hope you’ll make plans to join us at an event this year and sew with these wonderful fabrics.
Be sure to visit the Shannon Fabrics website, too – they have lots of tips and tricks for working with Cuddle® fabric such as Cuddle® 101: tips for Sewing with Cuddle®, Binding with Cuddle® and the Basic Sew and Flip Method.
