I’ll be coming to fair and sweet-tempered Loudon County, Virginia next month to teach patchwork, speak of my love of quilts and quiltmaking, and do my best to entertain and inspire.

The event will be held at the truly fabulous Sew Magarbo in Ashburn on October 15th. All the information can be found by clicking here, but at a glance:

A Day With Mary Fons @ Sew Magarbo

October 15th, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p. m. 
Meet n’  Greet + Light Breakfast
Books Signing + Trunk Show
Lecture: “10 Things I Know About Quilting & Life (I Think)”

Lunch provided.

Workshop: No-Fear Partial Seams! 
I’ll take you through the darling “Sweetpea Star Block” and you’ll learn partial seaming, which is not hard at all, contrary to popular belief. Partial seams give you such interesting shapes in your patchwork; this block is awesome and you’ll get the hang of partials in a jiff as you make them.

Here’s all that info and more. I have so many friends in VA; I hope to see some of you there!

    I do wish I could attend, but I’m on the other side of the states (Washington State to be exact. And I’m not even on the popular West side of the state, but eastern Washington. Think we could be on your future radar?

      Wanda, hi!

      I’m going to post tomorrow that I’ll be in the Portland area for a real quick stop on Sunday! Stay tuned; I’m so tired I’m gonna drop, but I’ll get that info out asap.
