Meet Me in Fargo!

I am so excited to be traveling to Fargo this fall to teach three workshops for the Quilters' Guild of North Dakota!  A Weekend with French General will feature an evening lecture on Thursday, September 22nd.  I will present the history of our 20 (yes 20!) year old company, how I find my inspiration in the South of France (not difficult!) and how we created a company that has become a staple in rural French design.
On Friday, September 23rd, I will teach two workshops - a jewelry class in the morning - featuring one of our vintage kits along with some special antique beaded friendship bracelets.  

After lunch, I will teach an embroidery workshop using one of our new floral patterns and our collection of floss.  All materials are supplied for both workshops.
 On Saturday, September 24th, I will be teaching the magic of shibori and indigo.  This all day workshop will teach you how to make an indigo vat, prepare your fabric using different shibori techniques to create patterns, and how to turn your textiles a brilliant shade of indigo blue.
It's sure to be a weekend of inspiration, craft and friendship - I hope you can join us if you're visiting or live in the area!
As an added treat, Mogull will be coming along to run the French General Pop-Up Shop...filled with our quilting fabric from Moda, our exclusive jewelry and embroidery kits - as well as the first opportunity to try out and purchase our new French Hoop!
Feel free to write me at with any questions or to sign up, visit the Quilter's Guild of North Dakota.
See you in Fargo!
