(I can only LUCK into good photos of this kid lately. Here she is amusing herself while I worked on Scrappy Spiderwebs photos.)
1) Victoria Findlay Wolfe (she is who I think of as “THE WINNER OF QUILTCON”) is coming to lecture at an event co-hosted by the Boston MQG and the Seacoast MQG! She’ll be at the West Newbury Town Hall Annex in West Newbury MA on October 18, 7-9pm. Members of either BMQG or SMQG pay $5 at the door; all guests are welcome and can purchase a $10 ticket at the door. See the SMQG blog for details.
2) Lizzy House is coming to another lecture co-hosted by the SMQG and BMQG! She’ll be visiting us on November 23 from 10 am to noon, also at the West Newbury Town Hall Annex in West Newbury MA. This event is free to all members of the SMQG and BMQG; again, all guests are welcome and can purchase a $10 ticket at the door. SMQG blog has Lizzy House details, too!
3) Denyse Schmidt is coming to the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell MA in November. Her workshop has been booked up for months, but she will be giving a lecture on November 15 at 7pm. I won’t be able to make this one myself but check out the details if you think you can!
4) By Hand London just released a free PDF pattern, the Polly Top, and it looks FABULOUS. Fabulous, as in, why am I not already sewing this?! Head over here, enter your email address, and they’ll send you a download link. I’ve had a look and the pattern looks quite appropriate for a beginner sewist. (This is absolutely not a sponsored post, but seriously, you should know about the Polly Top.)
