Everyone will have their Red Maine Quilts 2017 Brochure in a couple weeks! Look inside and find your quilt registration form, your workshop and event registration form and your volunteer form. Let’s talk about workshops. Teachers are coming from everywhere!
Pat Delaney - Massachusetts, Harriet Hargrave - Colorado, Philippa Naylor - England,
Pat Pauly – New York, Froncie Quinn – New Hampshire, Ann Unrein – Utah and Jamie Wallen – Indiana. What a line up!

Pat Delaney is teaching about color and two of her quilts. Harriet Hargrave will teach you beginning quilting and machine appliqué. Learn from one of the best. Philippa Naylor is joining us from England and playing with contemporary curved piecing and precision piecing. Our work will be even better with lessons from Philippa! She is also our Friday night Dinner Keynote speaker. Pat Pauly will expand our horizons with visual and obtuse design. Froncie Quinn will bring us back to patterns from quilts in Shelburne Museum and Florence Peto. You want to learn to hand piece and appliqué? Take a Froncie Quinn workshop. Have you ever wanted to make those wonderful bags with the pockets and zippers? Join Ann Unrein and learn all the tips and techniques!
