Birds in January
Such a deal I have for you.
Come and take my first-ever, all day, bird-making workshop! Thursday, January 27.
It will be held in conjunction with the "Stitches in Bloom" quilt show at the Oregon Garden in Silverton, Oregon. You can find all the information here.
The Oregon Garden is about 35 minutes south of Portland. If you want, you can stay at the beautiful new hotel right at the garden. You can tour the Gordon House, the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in Oregon, also right there at the garden. You can see the extensive gardens, though admittedly not at their peak in the middle of January, still beautiful in their structure and planning. It is quite a marvelous place! You can enjoy a beautiful quilt show And—you can hang out with me for a day and we will have fun with fabric and wire and such.
I will also be doing a lecture/demo about my fusing techniques on Saturday, as part of the quilt show.
The Stitches in Bloom show is only a few years old, but has developed a reputation for wonderful quilts in a beautiful setting. Last year our High Fiber Diet "Line Dance" show was a special exhibit. This year our "Birds Eye View" show will be there. This year's featured artist is Marsha McCloskey, maker of those incredible feathered star quilts, fabric designer extraordinaire and one of the nicest people ever! She will be doing a 1-day workshop as well. This is the first year that the show has incorporated workshop days, and I don't think a lot of people know about them, so I am hoping the word will get out.
I am really looking forward to this! I hope some of you will come. Bring your friends. And besides, what better way to beat the January doldrums?
