Long Beach Quilt Festival: Getting Ready

I believe in taking classes, when they interest you or teach you a new skill.  I’m headed to the Long Beach International Quilt Festival (or LB-QuiltCon, as I like to call it) and I’m taking three classes: two from Karen Stone and one from Kaari Meng, of French General.  Here are snapshots of the projects:

I discovered today that there is a Preview Night on Thursday night, where we get access to the quilt displays, vendors plus they have a Take-It-Make-It sort of set up of learning new skills.  I finally got organized this afternoon, printing out class supply lists, which led me to notice one curious thing.  I need no fabrics for the Stone classes, but did have to pay for a kit.  And they’ll have sewing machines for us to use (and charge us for, of course).  When I went to Houston a few years ago, I dragged a roller suitcase full of fabric with me to each of the classes I took.  What a change.

What a very nice change.  (I may sneak some of my fabrics in anyway.)

  1. Love the old favorites,new ways class. That should be really fun to learn. You’ll have to let us know how that goes. Understand that quilt show is a good one and I wish I were closer as I’d love to go myself.
