Each year we attend Sewposium with 50-60 other quilt shops. This event combines top notch quilt industry information, exclusive patterns and fabrics, networking and a quilt retreat for these shop owners.

The star of this event is getting the year's Brown Bag Mystery Quilt program.


Designed by Karen Montgomery of the The Quilt Company, the Brown Bag Mystery is more than just a bag of fabrics (6.5 yards this year) and you can only get it from a participating Sewposium shop.

You get:

  • A curated bundle chosen specifically for the pattern.
  • The Sewposium exclusive pattern with preliminary cutting instructions and mailed printed clues.
  • Online video tutorials 
  • A bonus project to warm up on. Released March 1
  • Access to a very active private Facebook group for sharing progress, asking questions, and cheering for each other.


Here's Karen to give you many of the details:

Choose your bag and you'll receive your kit with 5 fabric cuts, each labeled, for a total of 6.5 yards of fabric. You'll also find information about the mystery, information on how to join the private Facebook group where all of the video instruction will be posted. You'll also get initial cutting instructions for the mystery.


The private Facebook Group opens February 1st, with 28 days to better quilting. Check in daily for a quilting tip!
