CreativFestival 2009 in Toronto

CreativFestival is being held October 16-18 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in downtown Toronto. Every day this huge show attracts thousands of quilters, sewers, knitters, scrapbookers and crafters of all kinds.

I will be teaching 2 classes at this event. In the Memory Quilts and More class you will learn to use paper photographs, photo transfers, fabric printer sheets and scrapbooking techniques to create unique memory quilts. Participants will make a small quilt in class using one of my newest designs. Here are a few pictures of some little memory quilts which use pictures printed on fabric or removable paper photos.

I will also be teaching a Wonky Houses class. You can create these whimsical house blocks using quick cutting and piecing techniques. No templates, no measuring - just cut and sew! Your houses can be as off-square as you wish – crooked walls, doors and windows all add to the fun! Several design options will be available to help you combine your houses into an attractive quilt. This is definitely a no-stress class!

Check out the CreativFestival website to learn more about all the activities coming up in October. My booth number is 509. Be sure and stop by to say "hello" if you are coming to the show!
