Kaffe Fasset Workshop Info

Passing on this important info from Robin, our secretary:

Where: 1 Tree Farm Rd, Pennington, NJ (in the same shopping complex as Pennington Quilt Works - so we can walk over and shop for anything we need).
When: Sunday Oct 7th from 10-5
Spots Open: 30 

Kaffe Fasset will be teaching a workshop on color and fabric selection with his partner, our very own Liza Prior Lucy. You be learning about color and fabric selection and placement using a design wall. You do NOT need to use Kaffe's fabrics, but it is certainly an option and they are available at Pennington Quiltworks. The workshop will include cutting and using a design wall, but not any sewing, so machines are not needed. The quilt you will do is called "Sunlight in the Forest":

If you're not familiar with Kaffe's work, please look up his MANY books online. He's a prolific textile designer with an amazing sense of color. He designs quilts, fabric, and even needlepoint and knitting patterns and yarn. He has many years of experience and an amazing and varied career to share. He lives in England and chances to take a workshop with him are few and far between.

To register for the class, please email me (check BigTent if you don't have Robin's email, or message her on there) should you like to participate in this workshop. The spots in the class will be held for 1 week (until Sept 2) for guild members to have first opportunity. After that, the additional spaces will be opened up to the non-members on a first-come-first serve basis. The workshop fee is $80 for CJMQG members. The fee is $100 for non-members. The full balance is due absolutely no later than our next monthly meeting on Sept. 11th. However, when you express interest, we will send you the address to mail you payment and ask that you do so as soon as possible. If it turns out you miss the monthly meeting, we will no longer be able to hold your spot and it may be taken by a non-member. The fee is non-refundable unless we are able to fill your spot. After you are enrolled/paid fee for the workshop, you will get a list of fabric and supplies needed. Any questions, please let me know.

(GAH, as most of you know, this is my wedding day, and I want to be there!! You'd better all go and update me!)
