Guess who is coming to North Carolina!? Jen Kingwell! I still can’t believe it. Jen is absolutely one of my favorite quilters!! Her work is beautiful and unique. She thinks of color and shape in such interesting ways. Her quilts are total eye candy! If you don’t already follow her work, you should check her out here.
She’ll be starting out with a book signing on Tuesday, May 26 at Sew Original Winston Salem from
2-4. UPDATE: The book signing is actually 3:30-5! They’ll have Gardenvale from Moda on hand. This is also a great time to meet and greet!
She’ll be doing a trunk show at the Triad MQG meeting that evening. We meet at the Southfork Community Center at 6:30 PM. It’s $5:) There will be books available for purchase here too!
On Wednesday, May 27, she will be teaching at Sew Original Winston Salem. She will be teaching Georgetown on my Mind. I’ve had this pattern for ages. I just love it! It’s a full day workshop, with lunch included for $130. To register, call the shop at (336) 760-1121.
On Thursday, May 28, she will be teaching at Studio Stitch in Greensboro. Her workshop will focus on the Bring Me Flowers quilt. Lunch is also included. The workshop fee is $130 and you can call the shop at (336) 288-9200 to sign up. If you do both of these workshops, there is a discount of $20.
On Saturday, May 30, Jen will head to the mountains for more teaching. She’s doing a hand piecing, applique and quilting class at Stitch in Time in Franklin. The fee is $40 and you can register online.
Then she is heading to Sew Original Boone for a class on Tuesday, June 2. Call the shop for more information at (828) 264-1049. Then, sadly she heads back to Australia. I’m already looking forward to our visit; I’m sure it will be here quicker than expected. If you live locally (or within driving distance), you need to be at one of these events. Jen is genuinely one of the most amazing quilters you’ll ever meet! She’s creative, inspiring and kind… all things I love to be around!!
