It's official. The Charming Quilt Shop tour will be back next year. Set aside the dates Thursday, August 4, through Saturday, August 13, 2022, to make sure you get in on all the fun and prizes.
QF owner Cindy Oravecz will unveil an original new purse design called the Rose Embellished Reticule at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in February in Hampton, VA. Made with imported French lace, the reticule features a rose made from rare silk aerophane (close-up photo left) and a hand-braided handle. She will teach the reticule in an in-person class from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25, at the festival.
Cindy also will be teaching her Romantic Ribbon Embroidery Vase at the QuiltFest Virtual Schoolhouse in January.
Learn simple and easy ways to fashion silk ribbons into hand-embroidered flowers, and create a lovely mix of five different roses, tiny flower sprays, trailing vines, and leaves in soft romantic colors. This overflowing bouquet sits atop a French lace vase
The on-line class, taught via Zoom, will be Friday, Jan. 28, 2022, from 12 to 6 p.m. Eastern time.
