Seattle MQG members, we received this message from Creative Live today. Read on and contact them directly at the link provided if you’re interested. Hurry – the submission deadline is March 10th at midnight!
*  *  *  *  *
Join author and creative upcycler (and Seattle MQG member!) Blair Stocker for two days of inspiring crafting using meaningful textiles you already have and threads you can easily find from a thrift shop. Being environmentally friendly has never been so much fun! 
We encourage students to attend both days, but if you can only make one that is okay! 
On March 16th in the Quilting and upcycling sweaters classes you’ll learn how to find real joy in handcrafting with materials that give you an emotional connection.
On March 17th you’ll learn how to reuse jewelry for both re-made jewelry items and for home decor as well as turn old leather jackets and skirts into notebooks and accessories. 

If interested in joining please fill out the application found here
Those who attend in-person will receive Blair’s course from CreativeLive for free. Students who are selected are expected to be in the studio from 8am-4pm, we provide a continental style breakfast and we will also be providing a catered lunch.
