A workshop with Joen Wolfrom

I have my prune bag packed with fabric and all things quilty. I'm ready to roll.

See, this weekend, I'm attending a quilting lecture style workshop with a bunch of my quilting friends in Saint John. Our famous teacher and author, Joen Wolfrom will be sharing her insight with us about color.

Joen has had teaching engagements all over the world and is an expert in lighting up your quilts with color. When these highly specialized quilt teachers come from afar, to a city near us, it's a great opportunity to grow our skills.

This 2 day workshop is a lecture style workshop, we still have to bring many shades of a couple of colors of fabrics. But there's no sewing. We also have to bring paper, scissors, colored pencils and glue. It sounds like fun. Actually it sounds like my grand kids would love it too!

One of the interesting tools that I see that Joan has authored/created, is the 3 n 1 color toolkit. I hope she uses this tool throughout the weekend. I think this would be a great help if one knew how to use it.

I'll have photos of paper quilts to show you late on Sunday.

Hi Gail,
I have the "3 in one" quilt tool of Joen's... keep that in mind and I will bring it this w/e. I had a hard time deciding what to bring, but will have my/our bottle of wine with me!
Hope to lear lots!
