Mary & Marianne In Boston Area!


Guess what??

Are you in Boston? Are you within driving distance of Boston? Do you LIKE BOSTON?? If so, I got some good news for you, cubby bear.

On Thursday, August 9th, my mom — Marianne Fons, mega-industry-superstaaaa — and I will be debuting our brand new lecture, “Beyond The Binding: Extraordinary Quilters, Extraordinary Quilts” at the Lowell Quilt Festival in Lowell, MA, in conjunction with the New England Quilt Museum. We’ll be doing this new lecture that night (and it is sooooo good, you guys) and then on Friday, Mom and I will be part of a panel discussion called “Quilting with a Crystal Ball:  The Future of Our Craft” over a schmancy breakfast! Can you stand it?? Talking the future of quilting over eggs and bacon?? I’m pretty much freaking out.

So you should come. Click this right here for more info on getting there, the museum itself, and the event. I promise some laffs, a LOT of amazing quilts, my mom, and the eggs and bacon, of course. It would be great to see you, New Englanders (or anyone who would like to join in.)

Will someone please tell me in what city in the Kansas City, MO on 11-13 Oct you will be in???? I’ve been told it’s at the “expo center” but we have many of those in the Kansas City AREA. Thank you so much.

Hi, I was at the lectures in Lowell Ma and can’t remember the name of the modern male quilter you talked about, can you help? Thank you and also thank you for coming to New England, it was great!

Hi, JoAnne! I think you have the wrong quilter! My mom might be in KC in October, but I don’t have anything on my schedule that weekend… Maybe ask the organizers of the event for more info. Good luck!
