A most exciting event is coming up rather soon for the quilting community: Quilting LIVE! From September 11-13th, countless quilters will travel to Atlanta, GA and be transported into a magical world of quilt classes, shopping, and quilt celebrities. Though I won't be attending, I've made my wish list of classes to attend.
For 90 minutes, you can hear the stories and adventures of the two mavens of quilting. Marianne and Liz will recount their years together as they grew their quilting empire. This luncheon event is one for the ages. I work in the Fons & Porter office, but I wouldn't miss this for the world! It's not everyday you can sit down and chat with these two powerhouse ladies.
Ebony Love is hosting this class on Friday. I've always been entranced by the backings of quilts. Though they're the hidden part of the quilt, and often don't get the glory, they have the ability to surprise and show creativity. You can literally do ANYTHING for the back of the quilt! The best part: Ebony will show you how to use scraps to make inspired backings. I think that's the best method of using scraps!
Mark Lipinski has done two webinars about slow stitching, and they were hits. He's now bringing his expertise to a live class. Quilting shouldn't be about moving fast and rushing the process. Mark wants quilters to take a step back and revel in the creative process.
What classes would you put on your wishlist? Better yet: what classes will you be attending at Quilting LIVE?
