KCRQF 2019 Sponsor – Quilters HQ – Special Event!

One of Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival’s sponsors — Quilters HQ in Overland Park, Kansas — has added an event of interest to all sewists!

We spend a lot of time agonizing over finding the perfect fabric for our projects but don’t give a lot of thought about the one item that holds everything together. Join Quilters HQ to find out why choosing the right thread is as important as your fabric selection.

Aurifil with Alex Veronelli — Go inside the manufacturing process for Aurifil thread to see how threads are made in the factory in Italy.

Sign up for this event on the Quilters HQ website Here.

KCRQF 2019 — Workshop with Lynn Doyle, Bloomin’ Minds

One thing you can be sure of in Lynn’s workshop — you will laugh!  She loves to weave stories and humorous moments into her presentations.  Here’s what she says about her pattern line Bloomin’ Minds —  “I like to design patterns that are quick and easy to do and that amuse me.  If others are amused as well, that’s a plus!  The biggest reward is to see people smile and laugh at my designs.”

You can see all of Lynn’s patterns on her website, www.bloominminds.com.
