Candace Kling...what a Joy!

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile!  I have been very caught up in a project and it keeps me busy but I have enjoyed it so much.  The next teacher that I am featuring for the retreat is Candace Kling.  This will be the third time that Candace will be coming to Wichita and she is such a joy!  She is truly a gifted ribbon artist as well as a very gifted teacher!  The first class she will be teaching is Fabric Flowers, it is a fantastic class where you learn to make flowers out of.....fabrics, of course!(Pictured above)

For the next two days she will be teaching Ribbon Cockades.  I can hardly wait for this one, it looks so interesting and was one of the first classes I signed up for.  In this class she teaches you how to use grosgrain ribbons to create beautiful French hat decorations or Cockades.

Her last class for the retreat is a brand new one that she has developed called Ribbon Work in Miniature.  This class has sold out, but I did want to show you the beautiful picture of the class samples she made up.

If you are interested in any of Candace's class, just email me and I'll get you enrolled!

Talk to you later,


  1. Hi Val, been working on your Language of Flower blocks. They're turning very nicely. I couldn't find in my stash bead & braid for the Pansy. Sent you an order.

    I wish I could attend Candace's workshop. Her artistry with ribbon is nothing short of amazing. Hope you all have fun & learn a lot. I'll be there in spirit.

    Have a wonderfu 4th of July.

  2. Hi Val & all the lucky attendees of Candace's workshop. Wish I could go, but I'll be there in spirit.

    I find it stange that we don't have any workships like this in the Philly area. I keep looking. There are plenty of "sane" quilting workshops, but nothing for CQ.

    For me I would have to take a plane from Allentown to Philly and then thru Atanta and then to Wichita. I don't think I will survive.LOL

    Val, hope you and your family have a wonderful 4th of July. I think I will be CQ.

    All the best, Jeannette
