Workshops on Friday, September 7 and Sunday, September 9
**We still have openings!**
Come to our exciting fall workshops with Kristine Poor of Poorhouse Designs—here you will find lots of ideas to keep you quilting all year long. Kristine Poor, owner of Poorhouse Quilt Designs, started the company in September of 2006 after designing the Sampler Tote as a gift for a family member. The tote was a hit and a pattern company was born! Her goal is to create out-of-the-box patterns that will inspire and amaze quilters, from beginners to experts, with their own abilities. She has a degree in Engineering and love of fabric; these seemingly conflicting pursuits have come together in her designs. She works with her mom (who doubles as pattern editor, sample maker, and creative assistant) to develop patterns that are a canvas for your creativity. Our first workshop will be in Windham at the Veterans Hall on Friday with the pattern Pine Ridge and the second will be on Sunday in Bangor at the Spectacular Events center with the pattern Turn Dash, both 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
On Saturday Kris will be telling us her story with a presentation and trunk show at the Members’ Meeting at Thomas College in Waterville.
