We are thrilled to introduce to you a new class…
Penny Roberts is the owner of Penny Quilt LLC a professional machine quilting business that has thrilled hundreds of quilters since 2002. Her quilt friends lovingly refer to her as “The Quilt Whisperer,” a title she is proud to hold. Penny has been an Elite Beta Tester for the Statler Stitcher and a Certified Creative Studio Trainer since 2007. She continually strives to find innovative ways to improve her quilting talents and skills by pushing her abilities to the creative edge. She has designed the “3D Threader” for use on Gammill, APQS, A-1 and other long arm machines because she wanted to offer you the opportunity to stretch your creativity in texture quilting. With this new tool, the 3D Threader, she has won a 3rd place ribbon in the Thread Challenge Category at the 2010 Machine Quilter’s Showcase.
3D Threader is her website where you can see more information.
Class 251:Thread Dimensions, Adding Texture to Quilting
There is more to quilting than just patterns! Learn how you can creatively quilt with multiple threads on Gammill, APQS, A-1 and more! Make 3D Textures of dense outlining, fluffy soft fuzz, and loopies! How about Red Work on your longarm? Thrill your customers by learning how to blend color and add depth using multiple threads on Edge to Edge and Bread and Butter quilts!
We would also like to encourage local groups to attend Festival to come shopping & see all the amazing quilts that have been entered from around the world into AMQAS 2010. We are thrilled with the quality & number of entries that we have received. Now we just have to fit them all in.
There will be a discount if you have a minimum of 10 people coming to Festival together. Buy a minimum of 10 daily tickets for $5- each. To obtain this, ONE person needs to come to the ticket desk & purchase all the tickets in one transaction then distribute them to their friends to come in. As long as there is a minimum of 10 purchased at one time then there is no upper limit. ie: purchase 15 or 20 or a busload for only $5- each ticket in one transaction.
Please let all your friends know of this offer & encourage your local guilds to bring a bus or car convoy to Festival! There will be lots of shopping, quilts to see & demonstrations to view on the stage.
Keep watch for some more exciting news next week!
Until next time…
