Well. This is a bit of a surprise.
And it is totally fab-u-lous. Over the last ten months I’ve been searching for a day job. I’ve had a few interviews that led to continued looking. Looking is good. Interviewing is a bit challenging. It’s weird, I can talk quilts all day long and not get remotely freaked, but talking about me. Weird right?!
So in just ten short days I will be heading to Knoxville, TN for a couple of days of training.
I am going to be working as an Educator for Floriani. I’ll start out shadowing several teachers, work my way to team teaching, and eventually on my own for the events. I’ll get to do the traveling and teaching that I love AND BONUS, I get to learn more! I’ll share this stuff in all the usual places, including scheduled events as I get on the schedule.
I am staying with Generation Q Magazine. So no worries there. 😀

I am so very happy for you! Congratulations. And I love Floriani products, so if they need a tester…LOL
Thanks so much BJ, maybe I’ll get to visit your area and teach!
That’s wonderful, Teri! Can’t wait to hear all about your new adventures as you learn and travel!
Thank you Kathy!! There will be blogging #travelingteacher coming right up
Congratulations! Glad to hear you got a job you will love!
Thank you Pamela! I’m so looking forward to this.
You had better stay with Gen Q, who will I submit to if you leave. Super excited for you Teri. So well deserved. Hope to see you at Connections Quilt Festival
Sally do you think I could really leave GenQ? I mean Jake, Melissa, Tracy, snark?
Congratulations, Teri! I think you will thoroughly enjoy working with Floriani and sharing your knowledge while learning more! If I were younger – and didn’t hate flying – teaching like this would be my dream job!
Thank you so much Brenda. I love flying and teaching so this is sooo cool.
Congratulations. You will love East Tennessee. It is my old home place. Enjoy your new position.
Thank you Peggy. Right now I’ll be going to Knoxville as necessary, and traveling from home. Although a move is not out of the question.
I’m so happy for you. They chose wisely. It’s perfect. Congratulations.
Thanks JoJo! Maybe I’ll get to come out your way and we can have margaritas again.
Congratulations Teri!!! So happy for you.
Thank you Gailen! <3

Fabulous news. I use a lot of Floriani thread in quilting and in embroidery. They couldn’t hire a better fit for the position! Hugs!!!
Thank you Terry! Maybe my travels will take me somewhere near you. 😀
Congratulations! What a wonderful new adventure and a perfect extension of your quilting journey. You will be a great ambassador for their brand!
