October Workshop with Betz White!

Cosmos Infinity Cowl
 I'm so excited that Betz White will be joining us for the day at our October 4th meeting at Capital Quilts.  Betz is the author of several books including Felt So Good and Sewing Green, and some of our members had the chance to meet her at the Mid-Atlantic Mod Retreat last spring.  Betz has a new book out this fall; Present Perfect: 25 Gifts to Sew and Bestow, and we've invited her to give a trunk show of the projects in the book.  The trunk show will be part of our regular meeting and is free for members.
Betz will also be leading a workshop the morning of the meeting based on one of the projects from the book; a stylish reverse-appliqued jersey cowl perfect for holiday gifts or to keep for yourself! 
 
Say Betz of the project:
"Scarves and cowls are such wonderful gifts to give and receive. They are easy to wear, sizing isn’t an issue, and you can never have too many! The Cosmos Infinity Cowl is no exception. With a soft cotton jersey on one side and a gorgeous print on the other, the combinations are boundless. You can customize the cowl a step further with some freestyle stitching and reverse appliqué embellishment. Add as little or as much detail as you wish."
 
The workshop will be from 10:15-1:00 on the morning of our meeting at Capital Quilts.  Cost for the workshop will be $35/members and $45/non-members.  (Non-members attending the workshop are welcome to stay for the trunk show as well!) 

We will be coordinating lunch orders for anyone who wants to participate, and we'll have it at the shop at 1:00.  Our regular meeting will start at 1:30 and the trunk show will be at 2:00
 
If you would like to participate in the workshop, please email dcmodquilts@gmail.com and indicate whether you'd like to receive a PayPal invoice or mail a check.
