I first met Jen Kingwell a couple of years ago at Fall Quilt Market in Houston, TX. She was quietly in her booth, surrounded by some of the most phenom quilts I had ever seen. Circle Game caught my heart hard and fast. Green Tea and Sweet Beans was there too. I was just blown away by everything from the fabric selection to the execution. And Jen. She couldn’t have been more delightful to chat with. I felt like saying to everyone I met, “Hey, did you see that Jen Kingwell lady?!?” I know, totally professional.
At that time I had no idea that I would ever have a studio, much less the opportunity to host this hand-piecing, hand-quilting, crazy awesome Aussie designer for a workshop and trunk show! Yeah, that’s right. She’s coming here. I die.
So, here’s the scoop. Intown Quilters, the phenom quilt shop in Atlanta, and I have partnered up to bring Jen to town. All workshops are $165, lunch included, pattern/book required, no machines, limit 20 attendees. Trunk shows are $20, no supplies needed, limit 40 attendees. Click on links to register online.

Okay, so now that all of the nitty gritty is out of the way, is it okay if I just totally have a quilt geek moment? Will you join me in a bit of a happy dance? And maybe a little delightful giggle?
See you in November…
