Mark your calendars August 18th for a "Chicopee" fabric launch party with Denyse Schmidt at Alewives Fabrics!

Edited to add:
Denyse's latest line of fabric, the much anticipated "Chicopee" has just arrived at Alewives Fabrics!  We will be celebrating the launch of this brand new collection, in addition to holding a meet & greet/ book signing with Denyse at the next SEAM meeting.  There will be lots of fabric (from Denyse Schmidt collections both old and new) to browse, plus a few fun surprises for attendees!  Trust us, you don't want to miss out on the fun! 

The next SEAM meeting will be held Saturday, August 18th from 5-7 pm at Alewives Fabrics with none other than the "Queen of the Neo-Hillbilly Quilts" herself: Miss Denyse Schmidt!

Denyse is considered by many to be the mother of the modern quilting movement, and for the past several years has been teaching workshops on her signature improvisational style out of her studio in Bridgeport, Connecticut.  She has written two books on quilting: Denyse Schmidt Quilts and the recently released Modern Quilts Traditional Inspiration, both of which have become instant classics in the quilting genre.  Denyse has also designed several quilting patterns and over 10 fabric collections: from the super-popular Flea Market Fancy collection to the much anticipated Chicopee, which will be available this August, just in time for Denyse's visit to SEAM.

Denyse will be hobnobbing with her fans, signing books, sharing insights and much, much more at this meeting.  There won't be a formal "talk," but instead this will be a chance to connect with Denyse in a more intimate, one-on-one setting.

Be prepared with any questions you've always wanted to ask Denyse, and of course, if you have something made from one of Denyse's many amazing fabrics and/or patterns, be sure to bring it for a show and tell. As with all SEAM meetings, this event is free to attend and open to anyone who would like to participate... no need to sign up or RSVP!

We'll have plenty of Denyse's books on hand, including her newest book Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration.   If you already own a copy, bring it with you and have it signed!

Light refreshments will be served (if you have a signature dish you'd like to bring, please feel free to contribute!).  The meeting will be held at Alewives Fabrics on Saturday, August 18th from 5-7pm.

We can't think of a better way to spend a Midsummer's Eve and we would love to see you there!
