The Blue Thread: A Shibori & Indigo Workshop
Join us for a day of shibori stitching and indigo dyeing with Kaari Meng of the French General on Sunday, August 17, from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. Learn how to create resist pattern and shapes on textiles by using a needle and thread. Prepared fabrics are then dipped into the indigo vats which will turn fibers yellow to green and eventually oxidize to a brilliant shade of blue. This one day workshop includes a fiber kit with all materials necessary including a yard of cotton. Sign up today!

Row by Row Experience Begins July 1
Will you be traveling this summer or maybe just visiting your local quilt shops? Join in on the fun with this free, nation-wide shop hop! With more than 1,200 shops participating with 110 shops in Texas alone, you will have plenty of chances to pick up a Row by Row Experience pattern wherever your summer travels take you. All you have to do is ask the shop you're visiting if they are participating in the Row by Row Experience and receive your free pattern for that shop's row. To win prizes, you create a quilt using the rows from at least eight different quilt shops. Be the first to bring in a Row by Row Experience quilt into the shop of your choice and you'll win a stash of 25 fat quarters. If you use that shop's row in your quilt, you'll receive a bonus prize. For more information on the Row by Row Experience, visit today.
