Sometimes it feels like I'm a little late to the party making announcements or doing what the other quilt pros are doing, like making video content or podcasting. So here goes. Spring Quilt Market in Pittsburgh is cancelled. The link takes you to their official statement and below is an official statement from them: regarding… Continue reading On Spring Market and Other Things
The next few weeks are full. I'm on the road visiting shops in Western NY, more on those in a couple of weeks. There are a couple of quilt shows I'm working on going to so I can see a few of my shops. First up the Northern Star Quilt Show this weekend. Happy 40th… Continue reading Coming Up
You know I think a lot, you've seen that in my quilts. I submitted a Sample Chapter and am still thinking about things that need to be in that chapter. I keep reminding myself that it doesn't have to be perfect. It just doesn't. That thinking though, sometimes just keeps going. I'm sharing a couple… Continue reading Tuesday Afternoon Ponderings
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h81Ojd3d2rY https://www.instagram.com/p/Bh4APEqjx8F/?taken-by=terilucas Ever have one of those days where ya think, "hey! I'm making great progress here?" Me too! Those are great days. A few minutes after I posted this, and 5 eighteen inch seams later I realized that the bobbin ran out. Most of what you see in that pic had to be stitched… Continue reading Sunday, Sunday Just Love That Day
It's a rainy Monday here in New York. I shadowed at a Floriani event hosted by Sew Right in Queens on Saturday and Sunday. This was my second shadowing event, the first hands-on, so much to learn, and a different style of teaching for sure. These events are project and process oriented. Project oriented… Continue reading Happy Monday!
I offered to help setting up in the RNK/Quilters Select Booth, getting to meet some of my new co-workers. This has been so much good. I ran into Alex & John Anderson. As you probably know Alex has a line of product with RNK called Quilters Select. Even before I joined the company I started… Continue reading Quilt Market & Festival
Last night I had the privilege of having dinner with Jo Leichte. I got to know Jo years ago through BERNINA. She has recently joined the ranks of the Floriani Education team, so bonus!, we're now coworkers. Having dinner together felt like a celebration. Would you like to see what we tried? Why yes,… Continue reading Celebration!
As you read this it is the very last day of Quilt Market. The camera lens, for the most part, has remained covered as I've walked the aisles. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bat3jraDGqd/?taken-by=debbybrownquilts Debby and I arrived at our hotel within moments of each other. This after she arrived at my house just before 4 AM, whereupon my Sweetie… Continue reading So Quilt Market
I started singing this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6UAYGxiRwU Singing isn't in my skillset, and while I tend to sing with reckless abandon here at home, when I'm in public, lip syncing is great, and it makes it look like I know the words. Over the last few weeks I've been working on two quilts that will hang in… Continue reading Did you hear about that time
Happy Tuesday! Last spring I asked a trusted friend what her impressions were: confidence was the number one take away from that conversation. Honestly, I like that she picked up on that. It's taken a lot of time to become confident at the machine, moving the quilt under the needle and watching the quilting motifs… Continue reading Embracing Quirk, and a new class
