New Look for Marti and Me Club
Marti and Me is getting a new look for 2017! Lana Dougherty and Karen Jones are sharing the demonstrations and teaching of the Marti & Me Club templates and patterns. Their debut appearance is in January with the Winding Way Pattern.
Lana will do one month and then Karen will do the next month, they will be alternating each month. In addition to the awesome pattern each month from the Marti & Me club, “the girls” will be offering two bonus blocks. They will demonstrate two additional blocks each month taken from Volume 1, Encyclopedia of Patchwork Blocks using Marti & Me’s “Perfect Patchwork System.” So dust off your Template Sets A and B!
Another new look for the Marti & Me Club will be a drawing for a sampler quilt – totally finished – made from the extra blocks demonstrated each month by Lana and Karen. You ask, “How can I win that sampler quilt?” Easy – peasy. You will earn a ticket for the drawing for the quilt by: joining Marti & Me, attending the Marti & Me demonstrations, purchasing any Marti & Me product, and making any pattern using the Marti & Me templates. Doing any one of these things will give you one ticket for the drawing.
Lana and Karen are really excited about expanding the scope of the Marti & Me Club. Please join us for the exciting changes and treats for Marti & Me. The first meeting for the new year of Marti & Me will be January 26 and 28, starting at 10:00 a.m.
