The Makerie Sewing Giveaway
I am really excited to announce that I will be teaching at The Makerie Sewing in Boulder, Colorado this coming April 18th - 21st, 2013. This inaugural special event focuses on textiles and sewing - both hand and machine - featuring fantastic workshops taught by renown teachers from around the country. I'll be teaching a workshop on natural plant dyeing using shibori techniques to create beautiful patterns and designs. Some of the talented teachers at The Makerie Sewing include: Amy Butler, Heather Jones, Jenny Hart, Liesl Gibson, Cal Patch and Tamar Morgendorff. It will be a creative weekend filled with lot's of heart and soul!
The exciting news is that The Makerie is giving away a fully paid scholarship to the event - air travel, accommodation and a full set of workshops - all free - to one lucky winner! To enter into their scholarship competition, you will need to write up a short letter describing why you should be given the award and then create a small 4x4 paper quilt block. To sweeten the deal...I will send out some of our paper and fabric scraps to anyone who would like to apply for the scholarship - just leave me a comment about how your quilt block will represent you!
