Pottery Barn Event March 22

Pottery Barn KatieBlakesley

I’m really excited to make this announcement! I will be doing a trunk show and meet and greet at the Pottery Barn in Clarendon (2700 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, Virginia 22201) on Saturday, March 22. The event is from 1:00-3:00, and I would love to see you there. I will be talking a bit about modern traditionalism, chatting about quilts, signing copies of Vintage Quilt Revival and I will have a few quilts for sale as well.

I couldn’t be happier to be working with Pottery Barn, and to be sharing ideas about quilts and quilting with a larger audience. I admit I had to pinch myself just a bit when I got the email inviting Faith, Lee and myself to do an in store event.


It’s actually a pretty funny story. Just before New Years, my family and I stayed at a cabin that was almost entirely without cell service. Every once in a while, a text would come in. I looked at my phone one morning as we were ready to go hiking and there was a text from Lee that said, “Do you think Katie has seen the email from Pottery Barn yet?” followed by Faith replying, “Maybe we should try a telegraph. Or a carrier pigeon.”

My family was so nice to me, and we drove right into town so I could see what on earth they were talking about!  Once we hit cell service my phone lit up with texts back and forth that I had missed.  I caught up on emails for a bit, and then we went on our family hike, so everyone was happy.

    I will drive up from Virginia Beach to see you. My daughter lives in Arlington so it will be a great trip with the Pottery Barn event. Congratulations.
