Kundan Pattni, professional quilter

Kundan Pattni, Kenya Quilt Guild member and officer

Have you checked out the Bernina Web site and registered for Bernina eNews?  Guild member Kundan Pattni did, and she shares with us this update for the holidays:

Jump-start your holiday gift crafting with our Hanging Letter Holder project made special with BERNINA embellishments. When used in combination, decorative sewing stitches make an impressive border and are fun to stitch-out. With machine embroidery, the addition of lettering to a design combination allows you to customize this project for each person on your gift list. Quick to make and joy to give, the Hanging Letter Holder will be on your hit parade of gifts.

As a featured 5 Series Webinar project, access the recording of our recent Organize in Style online webinar class to learn techniques for making your version of the Hanging Letter Holder. See how you can take your creative ideas to new heights!

Have a look at these and other great projects at Bernina!

This is just in from The Quilt Show, courtesy of Deanna Gaudaur who drew our attention to the right place:

“In honor of International Quilt Day on March 17, 2012, The Quilt Show, the web TV show hosted by Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson, will “open” all of its shows from the first nine series–that is, from show 100 through show 913–for the entire weekend of March 16-18. This means that–for three special days–everyone will have the chance to view these 117 shows, featuring some of the quilting world’s leading artists, for FREE.


Share this information with all of your quilting friends. It’s a fantastic opportunity to enjoy three days of learning and fun without leaving your home… all for free.  Log in to enter, enjoy the shows, and thanks for helping to spread the word!

Don’t yet have an account at The Quilt Show? Now is the perfect time to create one!”

Have a great weekend, everyone!!!

While you are there, you may want to take a look at online classes that will soon be with us.  Reflections, one of Dena Crain’s most popular online quilt classes, is being offered at Quilt University, scheduled to run again on March 23, 2012.  Registrations opened on 18 February 2012.  Although the price for a four-lesson class is a little higher than a workshop in Kenya, you can print out all class lessons and keep them safe for the future.

Welcome to the Kenya Quilt Guild!

Find us based in Nairobi, Kenya, happily quilting away. If you're around, look us up. We're always happy to make new quilting friends!
