2016 Lectures and Trunk Show


Lecture One:

'She Designs In Her Nightgown and Sews In Her Barn'
The Evolution of tURNING TWENTy®

Duration: 60 - 90 minutes

A whimsical, but realistic, look into the day-to-day life of designer Tricia Cribbs,
aka The Queen of tURNING TWENTy®!

While tickling your funny bone, Tricia will show LOTS of her quilts and share the story of her quilting journey.  
As an added bonus, she will also share her stitchery designs.  
This lecture will keep the audience laughing and is always a big hit!

Because Tricia's designs go way beyond tURNING TWENTy®, we will bring along a huge Trunk Show!  
You might be surprised at the versatility of her designs.  
Most everything we show has a pattern available if you want to make it yourself!

Tricia's patterns, books, kits, and machine embroidery CDs will be available if you'd like to take something home.

If you want to stay a bit longer and share or ask questions, that's great with us!  
Tricia loves sharing thoughts and ideas with quilters everywhere we go!

Lots of energy and very inspiring. ~Kim

Lecture Two:


 interjection \tä-ˈdäh\

—used as mock fanfare to call attention to something remarkable   :)


Duration: 90 minutes

How many times have you struggled attempting to piece a border and match (align) the design of the beautiful print you are working with?

We all love those beautiful wide borders, but how sad to see the seam line glaring at us about midway down the side of my finished quilt.
I mean, why do we CHOP off the lovely design? Well, of course, we can buy enough fabric to cut borders from the LENGTH rather than width, and I do that sometimes.

But, I’ve developed a foolproof way to piece any fabric, perfectly matching the print…..EVERY SINGLE TIME. Nobody will see the seam line, and the fabric design just appears to flow non-stop down the sides of your quilt.

You know me, I’m all about FAST, EASY, FUN.  You will find yourself using this technique for more than borders, it’s fun and anyone can master it.

Oh, and absolutely NO SPECIAL TOOLS REQUIRED!  You have everything you need at home right this minute, except maybe that beautiful print you’ve been drooling over.

After this, we will cover a few additional quick tips that I use in my daily sewing.

We will also discuss:
Binding your quilt
Fast, Easy, Fun hanging sleeves.

A full 90 minutes is required to cover everything I’d like to share in this session.

Bring a notepad, you’ll want to take notes.


I loved seeing Tricia again.  The partial seams and binding finishing techniques are very interesting and helpful AND seeing all the REAL quilts was great.  I'm looking forward to class tomorrow.
~ Teresa

Very good lecture.  Did not expect such in depth demos.  They were great information.

~ Sharon
