Well this is it-I’m on my way to Craft Napa and I can’t wait! I’ll post about my experience next week. Onward!
I thought I would have time to post the rest of my PIQF photos but that was not to be. I also thought I would have time to make a donation quilt for the Festival fundraiser-that was also not to be. But I am ready to teach, mingle, learn and be dazzled by the quilts […]
Yes, I definitely learn from my students! I recently visited the Ridge Quilters’ Guild in Paradise, California. We had a great time working in my “Daisy Table Topper” workshop. Of course, I did not get as many photos as I would have liked. I loved the way everyone’s project was coming along: I love this-Gail decided […]
I get asked this question all the time in class: “What machine should I buy?”. Well, if you sewed and quilted the same as I, had the same space restrictions, the same budget and the same husband as I, then you would have the same machines as I do! But of course you don’t, so you’re […]
I am not a huge user of ruler work on my domestic machine, but occasionally my quilt will call out for it. Let me be clear, I am not calling myself an expert on ruler work. And I actually like the look of an imperfect line. But I’m working on a project that does “need” […]
I’m in Cleveland taping for Quilting Arts TV! So from upper 70’s in northern California into the snowstorm, 19 degrees and wind blowing a gale. Wish me safe travels to and fro and that I stay healthy with all this travel. I’ll have lots to say when I return. I’m sooo excited!! Stay tuned!
Don’t you just love how quilters help each other? I title one of my lectures “Quilting is a Contact Sport” based on that premise. This week my friend Helen came to my rescue: I was working on a project at night and I ran out of King Tut #903. Horrors! I posted to FaceBook: “How will […]
If you didn’t make it to Craft Napa this year, you have to make it next year! Really, this is a magical event like none other. This year I got to be both student and teacher and I’m still excited about the experience. How much better does it get: teaching my first day and playing […]
It’s been a mishmash of life in the last week and not a whole lot of quilt or art making went on. But it’s been a wild ride from my perspective. Somehow at this late point in life, I have become An Entertainer. Cook? Oh yeah, but entertain? This is a most unlikely role for […]
Sometimes my travels to teach and lecture take me to new places. Travel is a major reason why I love to teach and lecture. It’s just plain fun to meet people from different places. I hope to be traveling internationally at some point but for now, I am excited to visit locales in the western […]
