Our book signing event yesterday with Shirley Bloomfield was wonderful. Not only did the weather brighten & give us a day of sunshine & 50 degrees; Shirley brought so many of her beautiful applique garden quilts to share with us...it was truly a spring day at the shop! She spend 2 hours signing her book The Applique Garden & did 2 demonstrations on tips in mastering applique. She wowed us all! Shirley is in the United States this month to teach at the Applique Academy in Williamsburg. She had many new patterns to share with us & we are excited to begin teaching them in the spring!
