Welcome to the Explore Fibre Blog for
I'm so glad you decided to hop on the Blogathon to do some exploring! There are so many amazing talents across Canada. It's a great chance to connect.
ABOUT ME: I live in the Sunny Okanagan with my husband and 12 year old son. I am a fibre artist, quilter, teacher, speaker, quilt judge and the host of Canadian Quilt Talk. I have so much fun with my Talk Show and it's all free, all the time for quilters to listen to on a walk, in the car, or best of all in their quilting studio! For a peek at the type of quilting I love to do VIEW MY GALLERY HERE
|Order Kristy's Quilt today in plenty of time for Christmas.|
I am also the author of Kristy's Quilt. Do you have a little one in your family who would love to snuggle up with a bedtime story with you over the holidays? Why not give them a glimpse into your passion for quilting at the same time! The aim of Kristy's Quilt is to share the heritage of quilting a child. For just $25 it can be delivered anywhere in Canada.
AND MY BIG EVENT going on right now is a worldwide postcard exchange. You can sign up for the CQT SNOWFLAKES POSTCARD EXCHANGE from now until Nov. 22nd. It's free to join, a great way to explore a new technique and best of all you could make a new friend. TELL ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS - your only cost is the postage to somewhere in the world and it's so much fun to receive a postcard from your new pen pal over the holidays.
Thank you so much for swinging by for a visit. Be sure to sign up to follow the Explore Fibre Blog in the right hand column. You can also find me on Facebook/CanadianQuiltTalk, on Twitter @ExploreFibre and on Pinterest - Brandy Maslowski. And the best way to keep up to date on everything that's going on with me is to sign up for the Brandy Lynn Designs monthly newsletter by joining our mailing list in the right hand column.
Enjoy the Blogathon!

Kilvert Lake in your gallery is pretty.ReplyDelete
Thank you! It was so fun to make and now I teach it as a workshop. I've had wonderful students create skies in all blues or all pastels for a wonderful effect. Cheers!Delete
