Jaggie's off to St. Charles, Missouri

Jaggie says "Come join me in St. Charles, it's so much fun at 
Round Bobbin Quilting, Sewing & Fiber Art Expo"

Where you ask?  Well in St. Charles of course, that's in Missouri.
When does the fun start?   September 19-20, 2014

The official address is: 
St. Charles Convention Center, One Convention Center Plaza, St. Charles, MO

Come on down for a really great show.  Lots of vendors, lots of great "quilty" stuff to buy.  Come and visit me in our booth, Bear Thread Designs.  
I'll be there waiting for you.   

Veronica will be there giving a lecture.  It's free!!!!  So come and check it out.  She'll have about 40 quilts and she loves to throw them out into the audience for everyone to do "the touchy feely".  She'll show you how to make some of these amazing quilts and you'll see how easy they are.  It's as easy as cut and paste, really, it is.  You just follow the pattern and you get an amazing quilt, too.        
Take A Walk on the Wild Side
Instructor: Veronica Cox, Bear Thread Designs
Enjoy a showing of 40 plus quilts from the Wild and Wacky to Wildflowers, and Wild Animal quilts. Get a glimpse into the way these intricate quilts are made using fusible web and The Applique Pressing Sheet. Learn the tricks and tips to making these great quilts with very simple methods.

Our friend Amy Bradley is going to be there as well.  She'll be teaching a couple of classes.  We'll have her patterns and some fabric bundles for her classes as well.  We'll have everything that you need for the class.  So if you forget something, or fly in and don't want to "haul" all of your supplies, come see me, Jaggie the Bear and I can get you set and on you way to Amy's class.  Come by after her class and let me see what you made.
