Let’s Bee Social #80

Posted on: July 8th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to another Let’s Bee Social link up! I have lots of news to share today…. And can’t wait to see what’s new with you, too.

A beautiful rainbow of fat quarters arrived and the ideas are percolating…
This bundle of Fusion Illusion from Blank Quilting is for my participation in the Jaftex Blog Hop, which will be in September. This quilt project is to celebrate 85 years that Jaftex Corporation has been in business. Jaftex is the parent company for Henry Glass Fabrics, Studioe Fabrics and Blank Quilting Corporation. Keep your eyes peeled for more news as this blog hop will be rife WITH GIVEAWAY PRIZES!

This week I am working on a project, sponsored by Northcott Fabrics, for the EQ7: Seasons Row-A-Long which starts September 1st. I will share more about this later, giving you the whole line up of participants in the schedule. Then you can follow along each day to see what everyone has created for their row and season. Instructions for their row will be shared. And, of course, there will be LOTS OF GIVEAWAY PRIZES!

I have no idea what October will bring…..

But in November I will be driving up to Kincardine, Ontario, Canada. On Tuesday, November 10th from 9:30 to 3:30, I will be teaching a Fox & Friends quilt class for the Kincardine Sunset Quilters’ Guild.

If you are a member of a guild, perhaps you would be interested in having me come and do a workshop with your group. It sure would be a lot of fun! And a wonderful opportunity to meet you in person. Please check out my Events page under my banner for more information.

I am currently seeking out affiliates who are interested in advertising quilt patterns. Affiliates will be offered 10% of the sale and it is automatically handled by Payhip, which is the site I am using to sell patterns from. Here is my Payhip pattern shop where you can view the patterns.

Would you be interested in becoming an affiliate?
If so, please email me with the names of any patterns you are wanting to advertise.

Now it’s time for the linky party!!!!! What’s buzzing at your hive?
