It's Time to Learn to Quilt! PDF Print E-mail

It's time to jump on the quilting bandwagon - first check and see if there is a local quilt shop in your area. They will gently guide you through your first quilting experience. Another option is to take advantage of my Start Quilting Book or DVD - either way I want to personally welcome you into the fabulous and ever changing world of quilting! Also please take advantage of www.thequiltshow.com - the worlds largest online quilt resource. Until we meet....and we quilters do get around!

Welcome 2014! Starting with Road to California

Fall is Around the Corner - Class Time! PDF Print E-mail

Hope you all are having a great summer – it's going to be over sooner than we think! I want to share a couple of exciting events coming up in the next few months as summer comes to end and our beautiful fall weather begins.

Lots of things are happening in late September and early October starting with the one and only

Quilting In The Garden quilt show at the Alden Lane Nursery here in Livermore, on Saturday and Sunday, September 28-29. I'll be teaching my Bountiful Baskets class at the Nursery on Wednesday, September 25 from 9am-4pm (class fee of $89 includes lunch - image below). There's just no other place like Alden Lane for a quilt show and classes! http://www.aldenlane.com/quilt/stitchQ.html

And then my good friend Laura Nownes is teaching her one-day "Going to Market" class at the Nursery in Livermore on Tuesday, Oct 1 just prior to the Alex Anderson Quilt Retreat. Class fee is $69 and includes lunch. Samples of both my and Laura's class projects can be seen on the Alden Lane website. http://www.aldenlane.com/quilt/stitchQ.html Reserve your spot by contacting Cyndee at Alden Lane (925-447-0280) ASAP (image below)!

And then there's more! A few additional spots have opened up in the October 3-6, 2013 Alex Anderson Quilt Retreat being held this year at the Holiday Inn in Dublin, CA. For those of you who've attended past retreats, please note this is a change in venue, but there is no change in the retreat itself. This year we will work and hang with Rob Appell. We have such an incredible time – we sew, we laugh and when we're done, we sew and laugh some more! I've seen so many wonderful friendships develop at these retreats over the years that I want everyone to experience at least one. So if you thought you missed out because the retreat was full or have a friend who wants to come with you, grab one of these last few spots quick by calling us directly at 925-4654-1080. Up-to-the-minute retreat details are now on my website, AAQ Retreat


See you soon!
