February 2020 Meeting: Betsy Blodgett
February 13, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild is excited to announce that Betsy Blodgett will be our guest speaker at our February guild meeting. Betsy will be discussing her interests of quilting and fashion sewing, exploring how the two intersect in the modern fashion world and how you can combine them in your own sewing world.
Betsy Blodgett’s early interest in fashion and textiles led to a career in the sewing industry, which began when she opened bon bon atelier, a fabric store and sewing studio. She then focused her attention on the design side of the business working with pattern companies Indygo Junction and The Sewing Workshop. In 2016 she launched her podcast Hello Atelier, a show that explores what it means to be a working artist. Traveling for the podcast, she found creative inspiration meeting artists and exploring new communities and decided that she needed to bring that experience to the world. Hello Voyager was launched in 2018 as a textile experience production company. Home to the Grand Textile Tours, which take design-loving guests all over the world, Hello Voyager is dedicated to creating one-of-a-kind travel experiences that guests can tap into as inspiration in their own studios. Learn more about the 2020 lineup of tours which include Italy, Scotland, England & Sweden.
