Be Colourful 3-day Workshop with Jacqueline deJonge
We are excited to host a 3-day workshop with Jacqueline deJonge from The Netherlands. She will teach "Miss Rosie", an intermediate level project from her new collection of fabrics and patterns. Miss Rosie is a large quilt measuring 76" x 76", based on New York Beauty and Flying Geese blocks. Kits (which include the pattern) and patterns are available for purchase. Fabrics in the kit are the ones featured on the pattern envelope. There is homework that needs to be completed prior to class, so please allow sufficient time to come prepared to sew!
Kits and patterns for the class will be available soon.
The workshop includes morning and afternoon snacks, along with a delicious lunch. (If you have specific food allergies, you might want to make alternate plans.) If you are coming from out of town, there is a Comfort Inn & Suites (541.617.9696) just a few blocks from the Forum Shopping Center, where we are located. The Doubletree by Hilton (541.317.9292) is about 2 miles away and is walking distance from the shops and restaurants in downtown Bend.
Because of the unique opportunity to offer a workshop from an international instructor, no refunds are available. However, if you find you cannot attend the class, you are welcome to sell your spot to another quilter.
Questions? Please do call the store! There are only a limited number of seats available so plan to register soon.

From Jacqueline: "As you may know, BeColourful is located in the Netherlands, Europe. I live in the beautiful city of Delft, I think most of you are familiar with the beautiful blue pottery that is produced there for centuries. I love to live there, Delft is the place where I grew up, and I like it here, and it's close to my mom and dad.
Because BeColourful is a small family business, I'll tell you a little something about myself and I'll introduce you to my sister Bridget.My quilting life began in 1978 when I saw a magazine picture of a Log Cabin-pattern quilt. Right away I had to try my hand at this fascinating work - my sister still has the resulting pink Log Cabin. Since then I have taught myself and tried over the years to reach a level of perfection, not to show off, but because I love the beauty I can achieve through my designs. My goal is to inspire quilters all over the world with beauty and color.
I have always been creative, but quilting has hooked me. To be able to work well at something you love is a miracle and a gift from God.
My quilts have been displayed worldwide and have won international awards. They are based on traditional designs but with a contemporary and colorful twist.
In 2004 at the encouragement of my father I entered the Open European Quilt Championship and won the Color Trophy. Since that year I have lectured and conducted workshops throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. Interviews have been published in several magazines, and in 2011 I was profiled and featured on the Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson online Quilt Show.
I think my passion for quilting helps make me an encouraging and personable teacher. I love to share my enthusiasm for my designs with others and to bring them to a different and higher level where they can find their own artistic skills. I also show my students that quilts that may seem difficult in a picture are actually not that hard after all.
I live in the Netherlands in the old and beautiful city of Delft, famous for Royal Delft porcelain. I live close to my family , and I'm passionate for my Siamese, Mr. Pookie and for my rescued Greyhound, Amy.
I started my BeColourful pattern line in the Netherlands in 2004. BeColourful is now a family owned and operated business in the United States since 2007."
