The Year of the Birds!
We hope you all had a relaxing, happy Thanksgiving.
We're noticing a 'bird' theme to a number of the classes offered at MQX New England this spring. We're not sure how that happened but these birds sure are really pretty and oh so fun.
||Kathy McNeil has a majestic, appliqued Great Blue Heron.
Unfortunately, this one is sold out but Kathy has several more classes!
||Lynne Tyler's birds are fun and flexible. Personalize them to suit people in your life, long legs or short, big or small beaks, bold or plain.
||Kathy McNeil has owls too! How cute are they? Appliqué the Easy Way is a wonderful class to learn how to appliqué in a fun, relaxing environment.
||Jenny Pedigo & Helen Robinson of Sew Kind of Wonderful fame have this adorable Mod Owls class. Bring some fun patterned fabrics (polka dots maybe???) to class to bring these modern owls to life.
||Jenny Pedigo & Helen Robinson of Sew Kind of Wonderful also has FLAMINGOS!
||Bethanne Nemesh has a cool couching class to give texture to birds (or any other item that might need texture)
Why would I go to MQX, I don't machine quilt! When we speak to folks at shows or in our travels, people may have heard about the show but say, "Oh, MQX is a machine quilting show and I don't machine quilt." We always offer many other possible things to learn and enjoy. How about........

Button, Button, whose got the Button?
MQX provides a small banner for faculty to post on their blog, website, and social media to let people know they will be teaching at the show. Since registration opened two weeks ago, several students have asked for an "I am attending MQX" button to let their customers know they are furthering their education. Snag the image here and it's yours! Not able to snag it? Contact us and we'll send it to you.
