Great Northern Quilt Show is coming up
Yuza Sashiko Guild teachers Reiko Domon and Chie Ikeda, and members Akiko Sakuraba, Izumi Sato and Keiko Ishikawa are on their way to join us for the Great Northern Quilt Show at Harrogate this coming weekend. They arrive tomorrow and the show starts on Friday and runs until Sunday - details here.
I'm teaching another boro bag workshop, as my previous one went down very well. This time, it is for a komebukuro (rice bag), a drawstring style bag with a square base. We have just finished packing 36 kits, each with a lovely selection of recycled vintage fabric (lots of blues with colourful red accents), a pretty yukata cotton for the lining/foundation, plus a drawstring cord to complete the bag. Fiona has made a fab version of the bag in green too. My workshop is at 12.45, but it is advisable to book tickets at the workshop booking desk as soon as you arrive if you want to try this workshop, because the previous boro bag workshops at the Spring Quilt Festivals were selling out very quickly.
Yuza Sashiko will be running a 'make and take' workshop on the end of my stand, so you can try stitching sashiko with the experts. You don't need to book for this - just turn up and grab a seat!
I'm using my phone a lot to access the internet at the moment and it is quite frustrating that there seems to be no way to post on blogger via my phone. Can anyone advise me on this?
