More teachy-teachy and some TV - a Two-fer!

Pin It
Hi, hi!  I have some stuff to tell you about that I'm super excited about!
First things first.
Remember a a few months ago when I flew to Cleveland to film It's Sew Easy?
I got the press release and DVD last week!  The great thing is that you can view the segments online on their YouTube Channel.  And you can view my segment here!


I absolutely love that stinkin' circular attachment.  And sequins.
Anyway, it was a lot of fun and I'm excited to do it again soon.  I've got tons of ideas, y'all.  Would you have ever guessed?

Anyhoo!  I love that circular attachment so much, I decided to teach some classes on it, among other things...
I have been a very busy girl, to say the least.  I've been dying to spill the beans about this forever now.  I'm teaching at the Original Sewing & Quilt Expo!

I'll be teaching a coupla sewing/embroidery classes and a coupla longarm classes.  In one of the classes, you'll learn how to use that circular attachment for modern domestic quilting.  FUN!
You can see the schedules for the Atlanta show here and for the Lakeland show here.  That is all that is available thus far, as the schedules come out 2-3 months before each show.
But since I'm on that subject, if you scroll up to the top of the page, you'll see an Events tab, which has my calendar on it.  It's a crappy Google calendar, but it works for now (as you can tell I'm working on things just a wee bit).  There is where you will find all of the places that I'm scheduled for this year.
So come see me!  It's going to be a blast!

In The Spotlight!

Pin It
A few months ago I wrote to you all about my teaching at Machine Quilters Exposition in Manchester, NH.  In the time since then, the show owners have given the show a facelift, and a new name!  So now, I will be teaching at New England Quilt Festival in Manchester, NH!
This is a great show and I'm really excited to not only be teaching there, but to get to view all of the beautiful quilts by some of the top artists in the world - not only in the competition, but also the exhibits they will have this year.
I've also been meaning to post a list of my classes and descriptions, but NEQF made that really easy for me this time around!  How?  I'm in the Teacher Spotlight in the current newsletter.
By clicking that link, you will see a rundown of both my embroidery and longarm classes.  Within the newsletter is a link to the full descriptions of each of the classes.  It's going to be so much fun! 
I really hope some of you plan to join me (us) as we are going to have a blast (and if you will be coming - I LOVE HUGS).

One of my classes, From What? To WOW! Epic Quilt Creation is going to be one of my favorites.  So often when I quilt a quilt, people ask me how in the world I came up with the quilting ideas.  In this class, you will find out how! 
And just for the fun of it, I'm going to share another sample I recently finished for the class.


It's one of my favorites!
I hope everyone had a great time ringing in the new year!
Stay tuned, I've got a couple more fun and exciting announcements.  Baby steps!  :O)
