It’s been a long time, but I’m pleased to report that Fabrigasm, the Magazine for Lovers of African Textiles, is back with issue #7, ending a 3-year hiatus mostly due to the opening of the Cultured Expressions Sewing Studio in Rahway.

This issue includes an interview with Denver-based fiber artist Valerie C. White, three projects, some exclusive CE recipes, tips for headboard decor and handwoven fabric how-to’s, features on sewcial distancing, and much more. My fellow goat lovers will also be happy to see the return of the Goat Gallery ; ). The issue ships beginning December 15 and can be ordered online.

We’ve morphed this year’s SewJourn Colorado into a treat for quilters who also enjoy wine, in our first Wine Lovers’ Quilt Retreat!  Imagine a 5-day, 4-night pajama party with like-minded friends, in a beautiful mountain retreat house. It’s complete with well-equipped workspaces, a gourmet kitchen and comfortable dormitory-style accommodations!  It’s just secluded enough to focus on your creativity, without being scary-secluded ; )

In addition to spending days and nights immersed in our favorite projects, with a focus on African fabrics, we’ll spend one day in Denver proper, enjoying a trunk show with renowned fiber artist Valerie C. White, attend the WaShonaji quilt guild‘s annual exhibition opening, and enjoy a few other stops along the way.

New this year: We’ve added wine tastings to the itinerary, for an even more relaxed vibe.  We’ll be pairing wines not only with food, but also with various sewin projects, just for fun!  So register today , pack your sewing machine (ask Lisa how – it’s easy!) and a few projects, and immerse yourself in some well-deserved “me-time”.
