We met Margit and Jozsef many years ago at the European Patchwork Quilt Show in Sainte Marie Aux Mines, France. We quickly became friends. Margit and Jozsef are the creators of the EZPiecer templates for English piecing. Margit will be bringing many of her samples using their templates. She will be demonstrating how to use the EZ-Piecer templates throughout the weekend as well as their new product the EZ-Log drawing/tracing template.

Irina V. Mitina marries the traditional needlework of Russia (where she was born) and the love of the vibrant colors of India (where she lived for 4 years) in the kits and finished goods she creates.
Cross stitching, knitting, embroidery, appliqué and quilting are all embellished with Irina's color sense and use of decorative stitches, beads and sequins. Since opening her shop, Irina balances family, work and her online store while creating something unique and beautiful.
