Upcoming events & magazine stuff

I've asked Bob, my webmaster, to add some new dates to my webpage diary asap! In the meantime, here's the info re the National Quilt Championships -

19 - 21 June 2009
The National Quilt Championships, Sandown Park, Esher, Surrey, KT10 9AJ
Susan will be demonstrating sashiko and teaching a 1 hour sashiko workshop every day (book at the show). Books, kits and patterns available. Susan will be signing copies of her new books.

I've also asked him to add information about the "Landscape on Kimono" exhibition in August, with a downloadable flyer sheet as a pdf file for you to print off. Here is a jpg of the same thing - left click to view it actual size, then right click to save it to your computer. Feel free to print off and display!

In the next few days, my Strippy Handbag from "Fabulous Fat Quarter Bags" will be hitting the magazine racks in "Popular Patchwork" magazine. They have done a special bags issue. There was a bit of confusion among subscribers about the ordering details for the books, but Jane and the team have clarified the info on their homepage - and added a lovely photo of the Strippy Handbag too! So if you would like a "taster" of the book's projects before ordering, make sure you get your copy of Popular Patchwork. Subscription copies are sent out about a week before it appears in the shops, so it should be available over the counter by the weekend.

I've got a new scrap quilt design coming up with them in the issue that will be out to coincide with the National Quilt Championships and I've entered my "Scrap Bag Pinwheel" in the competition too, so if you are coming to the show you can get a close up look at it. If you want to make the quilt, start collecting pairs of 4in squares now. You're going to need a lot!
