Notion Commotion, Trunk Show, Learn to make perfect curves!! and more!! Guest Educator Barbara Brooks - Sat May 21st, 2011

Barbara Brooks and her Puppies!

Yes, this is the event we have been hoping for!!  Barbara Brooks will be coming to inspire - motivate and wow you with all her favorite 'toys'.  We can call it 'Notion Commotion'!!  or 'Demo Day'!! or how about just a day of Creative Playing!! with so many demos on some of the newest tools, that we all want to know about.

If you are a Quilter - Garment Sewer or Machine Embroidery won't want to miss this event. Just wait till you see her trunk show! (She will be bringing her RV and says it is packed with samples and her two puppies.)

10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Lecture - Demos and a Fabulous Trunk Show
12 to 1 p.m. Lunch  (On your own or bring a brown bag lunch, we have a fridge)
1 p.m. to 3p.m. More Demos on some great new 'Quilter's Toys' and then we will demo the Crazy Curves - we will have a few machines set up and she will bring some fat quarters and let you sew your 'perfect curves' so when you go home you are ready to start chain piecing.

PLUS.... what a great time for you to see why quilter's love piecing on their Pfaffs!

If you feel more comfortable using your machine, bring it along and we will set them up during lunch break. Bring a 1/4" foot or if you can move your needle on your machine to sew a 1/4" that is fine too.

Supply List:  Bring pen and paper to make your 'must have' list and also 'wish list'.

P.S. Barbara just called all excited about this new tool that she just got and said "wait till your ladies see this - it is now at the top of my top 10 things we all have to have". - then she wouldn't tell me what it is - said she would bring plenty and that I would love it.....
Now for the best part of the best day ...........Barbara has taught 'Crazy Curves' all over the country, including at the Quilters Loft many years ago.  She fills her classes by saying

"Learn to cut out 80 Blocks in 30 minutes.
Learn to piece 80 blocks in less than 2 hours.

And she promises every block to be perfect."

Perfect Circles!
Perfect Circles!
Barbara has been to the Loft before, but it has been several years, so I can't remember just when that was!!!  We love having her here (and her two puppies will be here too), as she has alot of energy and is soooo much fun. She also teaches at Pfaff Convention, so we get to see her there.

Call now to reserve your place as space is limited!  Reserve your seat: $10
