AQS Knoxville, the next chapter

Have I ever shared with you that I love Superior Silk?  I think I may have once or twice.  If I’d had more room in my luggage there would have been more but alas I had no more.  The thread and some silk batting by Hobbs, yep that would have come home too..oooh I really gave serious consideration to that Hobbs Tuscany Silk.

I frequently share with my students the Education that Bob & Heather have on the site.  Even if the student is not using Superior Thread they can learn so much about weight, needles, tension etc.  there that a visit to the site is well worth their time.

I purchased 2 collections of Kimono Silk.  The vendors didn’t have any of the Tire variegated or I would have found

| | this much more room for the thread.  Next trip.

Paula had an extra set of “Batt Scooters” handy for my students to play with.  The humidity was off the charts and the students needed a little something to help move the fabric around under the needle.   The white fabric & pen were a gift from my roomie Mary Ann Scheblein-Dawson, the Zentangle instructor.  She is so delightful.  There’s a piece of freezer paper to stabilize the fabric while I draw & a little batting there too to create a Zentangle style quilt with.  The pen writes beautifully.

I love hand dyed fabric and these beauties followed me home.  Karen K. Stone made these!  I can hardly wait to play with them and see what they become.  I do not currently have a project in mind but who could resist this lusciousness?  The fabric has a beautiful hand to it.  I’m slightly predictable color wise: lime green, orange, fuchsia& blue  I can see many happy quilting hours with these.

And Laura Wasilowski dyed this beautiful piece.  It’s rich!  Again not quite sure what’s coming, perhaps a combo of Karen & Laura’s fabrics.  Hmmn, thinking, thinking!

I’m sure I could have come home with more however I didn’t have a lot of time on the show floor.  While I had the afternoon off on Friday I spent part of that time meeting with someone to discuss some possibilities down the road.  I’m really excited and will share more later.

If you’re interested in having me come teach please check out my brochure on the lectures & workshops page.

Happy quilting!

  1. The Kimono Silk colours are so yummy! I haven’t tried quilting with them yet. And I also haven’t ever tried any silk batting. If it is as luscious as wool, I may never look at another poly/cotton batt again!
    I love the hand dyed fabrics! And Laura’s is always a favorite for me!

  2. Teri – I don’t think you could have done better with your limited space in the suitcase. Your purchases are beautiful. I know you will come up with something fantastic with all that lucious fabric. Have fun. Carolyn in Kerrville, TX
