Quilting Live! with Rose DeBoer + Giveaway!


Next week, on September 11, 12 & 13, Atlanta GA will be host to Quilting LIVE!, a 3-day event featuring workshops, make-it- take-its, trunk shows, quilt exhibits, industry celebrity meet-and-greets, shopping, and other special events. Classes will be offered in a variety of fields, including quilting, bag-making, home decorating and more and attendees will have the opportunity to meet industry icons like Maryann Fons and Liz Porter. To learn more about Quilting LIVE! (perhaps even to plan a last minute trip down?) click here.

We are especially excited about one class in particular — Make a Village: 3-D Fabric Houses with Rose DeBoer, Managing Editor of Quilting Arts Magazine. Rose adapted from Jacqueline deRuyter’s village in Quilting Arts Holiday 2014 and uses our Pellon® 50 Heavyweight Stabilizer as a base. We were thrilled to provide product for the class and are SO looking forward to seeing the gorgeous pieces that her students create. Check out Rose’s post about her class.

    I would couch all kinds of wild weird fibers adn yarns and things I twist up with wire or yarn on the surfaces. I think making it look like vines growing on one of them would be really neat and remind me of the cottages in cornwall that we drive past when I was a child.

  2. Julie B says:

    I have some old buttons, vintage jewelry, and old lace. My husband has a shed full of reclaimed hardware that would make cute doors or window frames.

  3. mcwflint says:

    Bring in the floss, buttons and fabric scraps. Open the box of trims, images and do-dad’s that were rescued from “ruined,” or outgrown shirts, dresses, and pants. Find the specialty, crazy edge scissors. We have house decorating to do!

  4. snausages22 says:

    I would use some of my (carefully hoarded!) vintage buttons, beads and trim!
    Thanks so much for the giveaway,
    Jacqueline in Pitt Meadows

  5. Alice Nelson says:

    I would use my NEW embroidery machine to add details to houses, leaves up the wall, gargoyles on the roof, what ever takes my fancy!

  6. Jennifer Lang says:

    I would make a gingerbread house village and display at the library where I work. We have a gingerbread house contest each year and this would inspire people! Thank you!

  7. Lisa Marie says:

    Very cute! I’d like to make a Christmas house with tiny pinecones and holly berries and leaves. Artificial, so they would last.

  8. Sue says:

    Before assembling I would lay the pieces flat and let the kids design there own houses. I like to inspire the kids, they are so proud to see their artwork displayed in our home!

  9. kim yanko says:

    I would use some embroidery techniques to add some climbing ivy or rose vines on the sides along with some applique windows and doors. I would make them to ne used year round.

  10. Colleen Biggs says:

    Halloween designs would be my choice for these adorable houses. With beading, specialty yarns and embroidery, they could be a conversation piece on my mantle. Placing some photos in the windows would be fun as well. Thanks for the opportunity to win the stabilizer. ~Coco

  11. Shirley Sellers says:

    I would use moss and other forest floor items to make a new home for a wee (real or not) woodland fairie creature (who can then live inside my home).

  12. Rita Cruz says:

    My house would have windows with pictures of my family in them and lots of antique embroidered fabric I brought with me from my home in Germany ! Yes It would look like a typical German home ,my castle !

  13. Chriss says:

    I would definitely wire these houses with lights that would look like candles in the windows. For a holiday flair I’d probably drape some evergreen looking swag (green eyelash yarn???) around the door and under the eaves.

  14. tammi d says:

    I would use a variety of things: wood, beads, buttons, and several fabrics – from silk to wool.
    Also metallic thread and maybe something to make a weather vane for the roof.

  15. Carol Carman says:

    I might embellish my own fabric house with machine embroidery to give it lots of personalized details. And I know it will be beautiful because PELLON is the absolute best and easy to work with!

  16. Pam Duxbury says:

    Why not make a summer village as well as a holiday village. I would use shells and sandpaper for them along with the beads and buttons

  17. Cinda Timperley says:

    I would make all the windows with translucent fabric, and illuminate the houses from inside with battery-operated tea-lights.

  18. Barb Bryson says:

    Decorative stitches from my sewing machine to accent the details of the house and miscellaneous embellishments to make it uniquely my own.

  19. Barb S. says:

    The houses could easily be turned into a country chapel with a cross at the top and decorated for Christmas, very cute. BTW, love Pellon!

  20. Sandy Swynenberg says:

    Can’t wait to make these. I will add bead lights and holly to make the houses look as if they are decorated for Christmas. I will put them on my mantle when I do my holiday decorating.

  21. Deanna Ellett says:

    Cute little houses! Would do some christmas decor on them. Love Pellon – and would really like to check out the Holiday magazine. Thanks for the chance to win.

  22. Terry says:

    I would decorate with machine and hand embroidery along with handmade buttons and some fun bling. Thanks for the sweet giveaway 🙂

  23. marsha says:

    I would embellish with a little cross and then shiny beads (made into stain glass windows) to transform it into a church! I want to make one!😀

  24. Holly McLean says:

    I like to do lots of free motion embroidery as well as hand embroidery and beading. Some bones, some flowers and for winter, some snow and Xmas lights. Snowflakes done using heavier white thread on the bobbin.

  25. Janie B. says:

    I love 3D houses and Pellon. I have always wanted to make a village or one for each holiday. Mine would be very whimsical with use of buttons, fabrics, ric rack, painted papers and nic nacks to personalize. Can’t wait to get started!

  26. Mel says:

    Oh how cute! Could totally do a Christmas scene! Use some ric-rac, and other various ribbons along with some buttons, and fancy metallic thread!!

  27. Cindy MacPhee says:

    Love Pellon…use it all the time……I would embellish with vintage linens and lace, paint, beads and embroidery……<3 thanks.

  28. susan leblang says:

    I adore this, have a personal affinity for houses. I have buttons from those in my life that have
    gone. I would make some houses one for each using fabrics from them and decorate with their
    buttons. I just love this!! I hope I win… I find I need visual memories as my age creeps up.

  29. natalie radbill says:

    I would embellish my houses with different trinkets I have collected. Maybe mini Christmas charms. If I can see how to do it I might add small lights or flameless candles

  30. Ellee says:

    Embroidery with decorative threads would work for just about any detail I might want to add. Some beads and ribbon would be a nice touch as well.

  31. Nancy Grim says:

    Ooh! I think I would couch some glittery threads/yarns on the fabric before making the houses. Then add buttons, trinkets and whatever found objects that might inspire me!

  32. Sandra says:

    I would embellish my fabric house with lace and sparkly material. See thru windows made of vinyl and a cat sitting in the window.
