When I looked at the QuiltCon workshop schedule, there were two classes I had my heart set on. One of them was Lotta's print class, which I got in to. The other one is a class with Yoshiko Jinzenji. I nearly cried when I realized she will be teaching her classes at the same time as I will be, so I won't be able to take a class by her.
Back to the title. I'm shocked that Yoshiko's class isn't sold out. I am seriously at a loss for words. The only thing I can think of is that people don't realize who she is. So let me help.
Yoshiko is the first Japanese quilter I fell in love with. Her quilts and projects are fabulous. Minimalistic, and packing a whopping punch. My first bits of Yoshiko fabrics were given to me by Jacquie 2 or 3 years ago.
And when I found her book
I poured over the images for days
So do yourself a favor. If you have time in your schedule on Saturday or Sunday T QuiltCon to take her half day class, you must. If only to tell me all about it! For me, I'll have to be satisfied with a lecture she will be giving.
