In Junk Jewelry, the Spider Webs really do look like faceted jewels but there are half and quarter webs on the edges of the quilt.  Yes, she will show you how to do that too!

Or why not use a wonderful Paula Nadelstern print and fussy cut the segments in this table runner?  This is a Cut Loose Press pattern so it is a great one to showcase in a demo

Kathy Brown

“Cut ‘Em Quick” with Creative Grids & Take 5 Chubbies

Kathy used to be a kindergarten teacher, so she is a morning person!  By the time you get to class, she will be ready for her mid-morning snack so she will be raring to go!  Kathy will show you how easy it is to cut all of the pre-cuts on the Market with her Fat Quarter Cutter.  This will become your simple, go to ruler!
Item #CGRY1  Retail $25.95
Her new book – Fat-Quarter Quickies – is being launched at this Market.  Kathy has outdone herself!  This book includes 14 different patterns that are all cut with the ruler!

Item #B1171T  Retail $16.99

These are a collection of fast, fun, and easy quilts that are ideal for a series of classes.  Why not host a “quilt league”?  Members come once a month and sew for two to three hours.  In that amount of time they will be able to complete four quilts in a year!  We are so scheduled these days – so why not schedule some time for quilting???

These quilts are simple enough that they will be able to finish one each quarter with no homework!  Our families understand if we have an appointment – so let’s add a “mental health” appointment today!
This adorable table runner also uses the ruler to stunning effect!
Item #TP011  $5.00

And Kathy will be premiering a couple of Cut Loose Press patterns as well….Can’t wait to see them…..And then come to the booth to “Experience CGR”!  These rulers and patterns will be in stock for your after Market shows.  Kathy’s book is due June 15th!  Remember, this is a lecture only – no sewing machines are provided so all you have to bring is YOU!
