Join Us for Two Events with Amy Garro!

Hello friends! It’s Michelle here, one of the NHMQG vice presidents.

I have a pretty good gig with our guild. I get to schedule events outside of the meetings, including workshops, trunk shows, and other cool stuff. And if you haven’t heard, we’re kicking off the summer next month with a weekend with Amy Garro.

Amy is a modern quilt designer, known for her precision paper piecing, creative free-motion quilting, and angular, at times masculine, aesthetic. She’s also an author, blogger, and teacher.

On Saturday, June 11th, we’re holding a daylong paper-piecing workshop with Amy to work on her Icy Waters design ...

Spots in our workshop always go to members first (it’s a benefit of becoming a member!). However, I’m happy to announce that we still have a few spots available, and we’d love for you to join us. Here are the high-level details of the day:

Amy Garro’s Icy Waters Workshop
at Quilted Threads in Henniker, NH
Saturday, June 11
9 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. (participants should arrive to set up between 8:30 and 8:45)
$110 for non-NHMQG members (the price includes lunch)

Icy Waters is an intermediate paper-piecing workshop. Participants are required to own a copy of Amy’s book, Paper Pieced Modern, which contains the pattern we’ll need for the day.

If you haven’t been to Quilted Threads before, it alone is reason to venture to Henniker. They have everything—modern fabric, Japanese fabric, tons of Cotton and Steel, some more traditional fabrics, and a sweet sale room. Workshop participants will enjoy 15% off regularly priced merchandise the day of the event.

We’ll start the day off with scones and fruit, and we’ll break for an hour in the middle of the day for lunch. Lunch is included in the price of the workshop, and our spread will feature salads, wraps, and dessert.

If you’re interested, email me at michelle.l.cain (at) gmail (dot) com, and I’ll fill you in on how to sign up and prepare for the workshop.

If you can’t make it to the workshop, the guild is also hosting a trunk show with Amy, on Sunday, June 12 ...

At this afternoon trunk show with Amy at Messiah Lutheran Church in Amherst, NH, participants will be encouraged to view Amy’s designs up close. Admission for this event for NHMQG members is free. Admission for the public is $5/person.

We look forward to seeing you in June or at a monthly meeting in the near future!
