Once again, Terrie Kygar will be a Visiting Director with her Crayon works featured in Creative Quilts from Your Crayon Box. Each class seems to get better and better! Lynne Regan joins us for an embroidery experience. With our own JLC faculty you have great skill building and fun projects galore to choose from! We have lots of first-quilt type classes, and plenty of more challenging opportunities. Always a reminder: we love to develop custom classes to meet your needs. Additionally, we offer one-on-one instruction. As noted above, Safari activities are full speed ahead as this CRF goes to press. JLC works on Safari all year long with special volunteers rolling fabric samples and creating fabric "stackers" of significant groups all donated by our very generous fabric representatives. When you are on Safari, each shop will have a basket of these samples for you to choose from. They vary in size but are at least a fat 1/16th (9"x12"). The Quilting Industry is just one of the most generous of industries. Contributions from our distributors have been arriving Back Stage and we have been prepping them for post-Safari gifting. The general list of prizes is posted on our Safari website: www.quilterssafari.com; first place prize is a $75 gift certificate from each of the 11 participating shops…these 11 gift certificates go to one eligible prize winner! Eleven $50 gift certificates go to another lucky winner, and eleven $25 gift certificates go to another. Other significant prizes include a Beachcombers’ Haven stay, as mentioned before, a magnanimous gift of books from Bear Paw Productions, and significant thread collections from Mettler and YLI. Don’t forget the Rich’s Bonus Stop option. You might be eligible for that separate drawing.The list goes on and on! The Aloha! Safari Sampler is hanging behind our Concessions Stand (cutting counter). Many thanks to Ginger it Up (Ginger Cadwell) for her great quilting…to Karen for her buttonhole work on the Anemone blocks, and to everyone who has been providing Lou with encouragement and enthusiasm! As you travel on your Safari, each shop will have a block pattern to give you and a sample of their representative block on display to inspire you. We so hope you’ll enjoy this quilt design. It’s bright and happy…and playful. Lou certainly had fun designing, pulling together the fabrics, and stitching it. We would LOVE to have you complete your rendering of the Safari quilt and share it with us for Quilt County in 2015! Pick up information at JLC’s Safari Passport Office
