TULA PINK IS COMING!!! Famed Fabric Designer, Tula Pink, queen of color and whimsy, will be the guest speaker at the Quilters Unlimited of Northern Virginia’s Fall Event on Tuesday, September 16 at the Ernst Cultural Center, NOVA Campus in Annandale, VA (8333 Little River Turnpike, Annandale, VA 22003 – the Ernst Center is in the back). Parking for our event has been designated to lots B12-15; those needing extra assistance or with disabilities may park in B2 and B3 (parking in the parking tower is not available to us.) The evening is free to all QU members who have a current membership card (must have card with you) all others who are not members may attend, but must pay a one time $5 fee. If you have not updated your membership status recently, it’s a great idea to attend your upcoming chapter meetings and get your memberships renewed! If you forget your card, we will be able to look you up on our membership rolls at the door, but it will take longer to get you through registration, so PLEASE try to get your membership updated and bring your card with you just to speed the process along – thank you so much for helping us out.
Ms. Pink designs stunning fabrics, quilt patterns, books, ribbons and even threads. We’ll have a vendor friend of hers there with a full array of her products – books, patterns, fat quarter bundles, ribbons, and threads. If you already have her books and would like her to autograph them, you can bring them to the meeting, otherwise, her books will be available for sale there as well, and you may purchase them for autograph there. Also, in honor of Ms. Pink’s visit, the first 50 people wearing pink outfits (just a barette, or a headband, or socks WON’T count – we need the FULL MONTY HERE FOLKS!!! ) will win a free gorgeous quilt pattern designed by Tula called “Moxie” – if we get down to the last few patterns folks, foundation garments might count, so please, bring on the pink. All I can say is that it is an adorable pattern, and I sure do want one too.
Refreshments will be available (yes, there will be cake – but REALLY GREAT CAKE), as well as healthier choices. Registration begins at 6:30 p.m. The lecture begins at 7:15. We hope to see you all there!!!!
