"Glorious Colour": Lecture - WAIT LIST ONLY

The presentation by Kaffe and his Studio Manager, Brandon, highlights works from Fassett's latest projects, including quilts, fabric, needlepoint, mosaic, painting and knitting designs.

The presentation lasts approximately one hour and will be followed by a Q&A session and book-signing.

Event takes place at Shady Maple Banquet Center, 129 Toddy Drive, East Earl, PA 17519. Doors open at 4:00 p.m. Includes a light buffet-style dinner available 4:30-6:00 p.m. Lecture begins at 7:00 p.m. Book-signing to follow. Trunk show and special fabric shopping opportunities 4:00-9:00 p.m.

Double Wedding Ring Quilt RETREAT

The Double Wedding Ring is one of the most recognized quilt patterns. However, many quilters stop short of making this lovely quilt because of the small pieces and curved seams used in its construction.

Rather than fear this quilt, let Lois teach you how to piece it using John Flynn’s strip piecing method. The workbook you'll use has easy step by step directions and simple illustrations that will make your weekend sewing relaxing and fun.

Plan to leave with a treasured quilt top or table runner that you can display with pride.
