How this came about was a real shocker for me. I've asked the Lord to show me what He wants me to do, and as a song puts it "Help me find my proper place". Well this past January, I was asked to teach quilting classes. I balked, and was totally stunned at this request. Then a few weeks later, I was asked again, and what surprised me even more was that it was by someone I really respected. So in March, I started getting things ready to teach.
The first Friday of every month, the quilt shop has a bit of an open house and stays open late to let customers come to see what will be taught that month. I was asked to bring along the class examples along with some of my other works. I was THRILLED. Joanie and I took a road trip, and we had a wonderful time.
So, all this brings me to my trunk show:
|This is the table of mostly class examples. The white|
items on the far left are my Freemotion class. You can't see much.
However in the next picture, that red wallet is decorated with free motion designs
|This is Threadpainting I class. In this class|
they learn to stitch with a zigzag stitch
to "paint" the fabric. (Not the best example).
|This is a bag and we were featuring the "Frozen" fabric|
|This is Threadpainting II class where we create a landscape using our machines to "paint" and then follow up with some hand stitches.|
I continue working on new projects for upcoming classes. Writing the directions is the most challenging for me. I can tell you how to do a technique, but somehow writing it down is difficult.
