New York's own Empire Quilters invited CE to be the Featured Vendor at the September 8 meeting, so come by and stock up on goodies for the season, and check out the speaker, Gloria Loughman, whose work involves many of the juicy batiks CE is known for! Hopefully, she'll need a few more... I'm looking forward to her talk. If you're a guld member, you know what to do, and if not, visit the guild's website for meeting details.
See you on Saturday ; ) ---- lisa
Ooohhh... I just looked at the guild blog and found this "Pick Up Sticks" block-of-the-month. Imagine this easy block made up from a Jacquard Batik Strip Bundle or even better, a 60-pack of 7" squares - come and get yours!!
Maybe I can work up a few sample blocks myself...

SewJourn To Ghana 2013:
Contemporary Quilts from Traditional Textiles
We're now just ONE SHORT YEAR away from our next Ghana travel experience, and you know how fast these months fly by
(I'm still wondering what happened to May...) Be sure to register for the SewJourn soon. By the way, we're inviting our friends, customers, students and associates to apply for a very special
exhibit in Ghana, taking place at the Dei Centre during our SewJourn
While there, we'll attend the opening reception and artists' panel discussion (in between our many workshops, presentations, excursions, and shopping sessions ; )
Please read thru the CALL TO ARTISTS, and contact me with any questions not answered there. I look forward to hearing from you. If you intend to submit a work but your entry isn't ready yet, feel free to email me and let me know you plan to send in a submission.
Can you submit an entry for the exhibit even if you're not coming to Ghana with us? Yes, but I don't recommend it ; ) so send in your trip registration soon! ---- lisa
