Road Trip! Finding Fabric with Mary Sue Fenner  

June 19 – 22, 2017

The Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts is pleased to team up with Mary Sue Fenner for a motorcoach tour in search of fabric – cottons, wools, silks, linens, whatever you can imagine – and fiber inspiration. Join us to travel to Minnesota this summer to visit fabric suppliers, to share ideas, good time and our love of sewing.

If you’ve taken a class with Mary Sue, you know she uses great fabric and embellishments. And if you don’t know Mary Sue, come on along and get to know her as she shares her talents and fabric sources. With the planned stops, you’ll be sure to find fabrics perfect for your sewing projects, whether you’re a quilter, fashionista or a home decor enthusiast.

  • SR Harris Fabric Outlet
  • Mall of America
  • Minnesota Textile Center
  • Treadle Yard Goods
  • Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabrics’ Dye Shop
  • Colorz for Quilts
  • Faribault Woolen Mill Co.
