ECMQG Presents: An Evening with Amanda Woodruff

ECMQG is excited to announce our first ever guest presentation and trunk show!  

Join us for  an evening with Amanda Woodruff, known on social media as ACraftyFox_Amanda or from her online store, Westwood Acres Fabric.  

Amanda has been part of the modern quilting movement since almost the very beginning. She's an avid blogger, a pattern designer, a major fabric nerd, a busy mom of three, and the daughter of ECMQG's Secretary, Wendi.   So she really is one of us, if you overlook the fact that she lives in a tiny little mountain town in Utah.      

There is sure to be lots of inspiration, fun, and quilty goodness as we listen to Amanda tell a bit about modern quilting, what inspires her creativity, and her personal journey.  As an added bonus, she'll teach us a small hand-sewing project, a darling little clamshell pin cushion.

If you are curious about how Amanda got her start in the fabric business check out this post from her blog.

Here are a few samples of Amanda's Patterns...
