Jacquie Gering Is Coming

Here is something new to add to your Christmas list.  Someone, you or a loved one, can order online for either event.  Go to Hyggeligt website for tickets starting December 12, 2013.  The links will be open tomorrow.
As of 3 pm Thursday December 12, the workshop is full.  Watch and listen in January to see if we can book another date for an additional workshop.

I'm still not a blogging expert so the links may not work, starting December 12.  So use the information to get you to Hyggeligt and go from there.  and, don't mind the photo placement.  It's one of those days.

Jacquie Gering is a modern quilter whose name is starting to pop up frequently in quilting blogs and magazines.  She has a pattern in the latest 'The Quilt Life' magazine, a free pattern for a tree skirt on the blog SewMamaSew and her own blog (google Tallgrass Prairie).  Her book, 'Quilting Modern' may already be on your Christmas list.  Last night I discovered she made the cover quilt for the book, "We Love Color".

Jacquie is coming to the London area in April.  She is speaking on Thursday morning, April 10, in London.  Tickets are $20 plus HST and are available through the website,  . 

She is presenting a workshop on Friday April 11 in Coldstream.  The workshop is $85 plus HST.  It is limited to 20 people so register early.  The workshop description is taken from her website:

Join Jacquie for a full day workshop focusing on the improvisational Slice
 and Insert piecing technique from the book Quilting Modern:  Techniques and
Projects for Improvisational Quilts. Learn the basic technique and a new
adaptation, a foolproof strategy for matching inserts, simple techniques for
adding complexity to a design as well as how to work with even width and
wedge shaped inserts.  Combine simple sewing with a new skill and create
your own linear design.  Jacquie will share quilts from the book as well as
new designs to inspire you.

Chantal from Hyggeligt in London, Joan from Sew Creative in Mt Brydges and I, Shirley from The Marsh Store, are working together to make this experience available to you.  We worked together for the July Shop Hop last year and want to continue trying new adventures for our customers. 

Details and more information are available at the stores so drop in and ask.
