Calling all quilt guilds! When I come* to give a program, I'll be doing an "Oprah"-style giveaway: a complimentary copy of my Unforgettable TOTE BAGS for everyone who attends--until my inventory winds down! WOOHOO!
*Just a small catch: If flying, I'll need to send them to you ahead of time at your expense. Media mail costs in the continental US are extremely reasonable.
WHY OH WHY am I giving these fabulous books away? As the publisher, I have to store all the cases in my townhouse, and I'm anxious to reclaim the space! But I'd like to see these babies in the hands of quilters who will enjoy them!
DESIGNS in this gem of a book by: Kaffe Fassett & Liza Lucy, Diane Gaudynski, Judy Hooworth, Jane Sassaman, Karen Eckmeier, Rachel Clark, Lonni Rossi, Susan Shie, the late, great Jean Ray Laury and Virginia Avery--and me! So I don't have to be immodest to say this is a fabulous book to have in your personal library!
Not able to make one of the gigs coming up? Click here to order a personally autographed copy--regularly $21.95, now heavily discounted to just $10.01 (plus postage and handling).
HERE'S WHERE I'LL BE, bringing free books and other titles at terrific discounts!
If you're close by, do come! I've never met the guild that doesn't welcome guests for a nominal fee. I promise you'll learn a lot and laugh a lot, too.

Can't make one of these gigs? No worries! You'll find loads of inspiration in the pages of my books--specially priced, personally autographed.
Hey there--Didja notice that a lot of programs are called "Quilting Goes Wild & Crazy"?
That has a lot to do with showcasing the projects and ideas in my latest book, Quilt Blocks Go Wild!
I'm fine with bragging, friends...
...'cuz just like my other books, QBGW! showcases a wide range of designs from some of the best talents in the quilt world. Easy how-tos, too: just like getting your choice of crazy fun workshops to take. For example, check out the "Drunkards Off the Path" by Malka Dubrawsky on the cover. LOTS more inspiration inside...designs by Karla Alexander, Pamela Dinndorf, Tonya Ricucci, Elizabeth Rosenberg, and yours truly (me!). So go wild: take a classic quilt block and make it your own, for quilts and wall hangings, table runners and tote bags, potholders and pillows.
But that ain't all, folks: My Skinny Quilts & Table Runners books are still best-sellers!
Click here to find out more about the first collection, shown at left, and to get an autographed copy.
Click here for info or an autographed copy of SQ&TR II, shown at right.

RAVE REVIEWS FOR MY PROGRAMS:
"That was such a refreshing workshop, so different from the usual where everyone makes the same thing. I just had to say thanks for helping each of us create a totally original and terrific design."-- Paulette, Erie Shores Quilt Guild
"You are a remarkable, inspirational teacher. You created an opening to a new world of quilting ideas! Thank you for sharing your magic!"--LoisMarie, Northwest Quilters, Portland, OR
"I can't tell you how long it's been since I had this much fun."--Paula H., Oregon Coastal Quilt Guild, Newport, OR
I'M FLEXIBLE, TO SERVE YOUR GUILD BETTER: I'll customize my presentations for your guild, and guarantee a good time. To help you fill that workshop, I'll send samples ahead to entice participation, illustrated flyers and class supply lists to clinch the deal, or share with neighboring guilds and groups so you get your numbers. I am willing and eager to travel anywhere to present to your group. Plus, I will bend over backwards to make a visit economical for you, helping to coordinate multiple gigs with other guilds or groups in your region who can split the travel costs, and finding friends and relatives who can put me up (I've got a lot of them!). Got just a few folks interested in a workshop? I'll work with you on price. Had a last minute cancellation? Bet I can fill in!
Do get in touch—just click on “contact me” at the upper left. And let me know how I can bring fun and inspiration your way!
Love ya to pieces,
