Fabrigasm LIVE – FAQs:


Is this going to be on Zoom? No, we’re using a platform called Hopin.com. You’ll need to create an account with your email address and a password to register for and access the event.


I’m not available all weekend. Can I access a recording afterwards? Yes, we will send the link to registered individuals upon request. The event will be available for limited time following the event.


I’m considering the Deluxe ticket. When will the virtual class be held? It is tentatively scheduled for Friday evening (EST), May 28. If you are not available for the sew-along, a recording will be made available to you afterwards.


What are the “Creative Critique” sessions? For each of these sessions, we invite attendees to come on live and show a current project, to get peer suggestions or input, or to just collect compliments! Share your work and make new friends!


What else do I need to have handy? You’ll want to keep a notebook nearby, and a yard of your favorite ankara or batik fabric to wrap your head with Lecretia on Saturday, or work on a cloth doll along with Kianga on Sunday! We invite you to work on your own projects thru the weekend, or just sit back, relax and soak it all in. Check out the full schedule and plan your projects accordingly!

Hey everyone! Check out these new arrivals at the studio… vivid prints and gorgeous bogolan/mudcloth for pillows, fun tote bags, table settings, headwraps, clothing, quilts and sew much more!  Stop by the studio or call to order 866-MUDCLOTH. Prints are $8 yard and the bogolan pieces are $50 each, measuring approximately 64 x 44″.  If you need more inspiration, download our workshop schedule for May thru July

     

      

And here’s the contest:  If you’re a true collector, you probably recognize this print of elegant ladies.  You know the print, they measure about 12″ tall and come in various colors. This combo is my favorite.  Ever wonder what they are discussing, or where they are going, or coming from?  Tell us their story below in THREE SENTENCES or less, and the best narrative (as judged by an independent panel of Cultured Expressions studio associates) will win a yard of the fabric! Reply by Monday, June 3, 2019 at 11:59pm for your chance to win!  Good Luck ; )

UPDATE:  The winner of one yard of fabric is @sisterquilternyc, aka Ghana SewJourn alum, Dee Huffman. Thanks everyone for playing along on Instaram and Facebook!  If you don’t follow us there, check us out @culturedexpressions.

I’ve been running a lot lately, and except for just ONE more travel-induced studio closing from Nov 1-3 (a private quilting event in CT), I’ll be in the Cultured Expressions studio every Wed thru Saturday as scheduled!!

 

         

My latest trip to Ghana resulted in all kinds of African fabrics and other goodies, so be sure to come by the studio in Rahway, or schedule a fun and easy Virtual Visit – we set up a time for me to call you on a video phone call, and I take you thru the studio so you can see everything and make your selections.  When you’re ready to schedule yours, download the DUO video call app  on your phone — see logo at right –(it works on iPhone AND Android), and contact me to arrange a day & time.

Also, now thru Sunday, you can save 10% on our 10″ Square African Print bundles, Black/White Strip Bundles, and 40-pack of African print FQs!!  No coupon needed, the discount will show in your cart.  ; )

PLUS, FREE SHIPPING on $75 or more…

See you soon – I’ll be unpacking for a while! —-   lisa
