Mew / Newman Workshop Recap!

Highlights from our visit with Margaret Mew and Judy Newman

The much anticipated workshops with the Australian contingent held in June were great fun and it's been exciting to see and hear about continued progress on some of the projects started in class.  We had a wonderful time with this team and they had stacks of quilts to share with us!  Thanks so much to our customers who attended this event...we appreciate your support and recognition of these ladies talent and skills.  We were even joined by a dedicated long distance student who arrived from Australian too!

We not only had 3 days of workshops with this team - but we also put the ladies to work the moment they arrived in Bellingham with an impromptu trunk show for some of our local stitchers that happened to be spending some quality time at their LQS!  Judy and Margaret also had time to peruse our shelves and came up with some fun fabric selections for starter kits for a few of their quilt projects.  It is almost like they'll be watching over your shoulder as you work on one of these quilts!

We have a few patterns and starter kits available for the Cleland Coverlet and the Indiana Medallion - including hand-picked fabrics by Margaret!  Give the shop a call or send us an email if you're interested.  We have the EPP coffin shapes in stock as well to finish up the Cleland.

Judy isn't a fan of dark colors, so you'll see a distinct shift in color palette with her fabric picks for Emma Mary and County Claire (shown below).  We have the fabric starter packs, acrylic templates for County Claire, and a couple of patterns with the EPP shapes for Emma Mary - give us a call or email and we'll get you set up!

We did our best to show these ladies a good time while here in Bellingham, a bit of touring and some outside summer dining, sweetened the deal with our favorite treats and a fabric fix....we may see these ladies back at a future date if their travel schedules permit!  Until next time...
