Mary & Marianne In Boston Area!
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.)
