My friend Brenda over at Farmer's Dotter hosts quilt retreats from her charming home in Bedford, Iowa. And this spring, she's offering a $25 bed-and-breakfast special (through July 1st). Brenda will also be hosting an open house/quilt/garden show (weather permitting) during the All Iowa Quilt Shop Hop June 1-14! Brenda's gardens should be at their peak during this time. More than 90 Iowa shops are participating in this state-wide shop hop that offers more than $5,000 in prizes. The following photo features Brenda's enchanting booth at last year's AQS Show in Des Moines. You can see more pics of it here.
During the All-Iowa Shop Hop, Brenda will be selling a few patterns and kits, which are inspired by 1930s quilted treasures. Her kits even incorporate vintage 1930s fabrics! Here is a pic of some of her quilts that I took at the AQS Show. Brenda had everything displayed so nicely. It made you just want to hang out in her booth all afternoon!
Brenda also presents marvelous trunk shows to quilt guilds and is available for future bookings. She charges a very reasonable $75 plus mileage. For more info on these fun quilting opportunities, check out Brenda's website here and for her contact info, click the postcard below.
