A Year of Quilt Shows

It’s the time of year when I start planning the summer garden, for canning, vacation—not to mention trade shows! I’m in the depths of planning new layouts, backdrops, pattern displays, and giveaways. I thought you might be interested in knowing when I’ll be exhibiting my designs and selling patterns & kits in 2018, so for the full scoop, make sure you check here, I’ll be updating this as talks and classes are scheduled throughout the year as well.

Keep an eye out for me and my little yellow trailer (which is hopefully getting a little bit of branding love this spring) at the following shows:
