Bonnie Hunter Coming Soon

Pardon the duplicate post....

Bonnie Hunter is coming to speak in our area!




Some of you may know Bonnie from the Quiltville.com website and her famous blog too.
I am happy to announce that she will be speaking at Arthur's Restaurant in Spring Green Wisconsin on Monday, November 10th at 7:00pm. That is at the intersection of Hwy 14 and Hwy 23 in Spring Green.


Her trunk show and lecture will be a spectacular show to say the least. And her long awaited book, "Scraps and Shirttails" will be available for sale at the book signing following the Trunk Show.



I am so excited to host Bonnie. I have been a follower of her "Scrap User System" in which you learn to cut your scraps into usable sizes like 2" strips, or 2 1/2", or 3" strips or more. You cut your smaller pieces into usable squares or bricks too!




Then after organizing your scraps into bins of same sizes, Bonnie gives you patterns on her website that she created pulling fabric from those bins and using those precut strips and squares!
soon to be released book...............Bonnie's new book will have even more patterns to use those scraps up. After all, $9 a yard is still $9 a yard even in scraps. You can see from the book's cover that Bonnie also recycles in its finest state. Using 100% cotton shirts from thrift stores as fabric too.


So if you want to get off work early, come for dinner, stay for the show -- save the date now.
Monday, November 10th
Arthur's Restaurant, Spring Green WI
* 7:00pm * small fee at the door
More details later, Lets show Bonnie that Wisconsin quilters support great Quilt Teachers!

What wonderful quilts. I too love using recycled fabrics. I get a lot of mine at thrift stores and am now starting to use old clothing for my bags and purses I am making now. Fun and pretty too!
