Talking about QuiltCon on Modern Sewciety.

Hey, so I did a pretty bad job of announcing this, but I’ve got a couple more classes that were just added for QuiltCon. I’m teaching my Alturas project (pictured above) on Friday, Feb 20 from 6pm-9pm, and I’m doing a big stitch hand quilting (see below) class on Saturday, Feb 21 from 6pm-9pm. I’m pretty excited about both because they are handwork classes in the evening, which is totally my preferred time to slow sew. Of course since it’s QuiltCon, and since we’ll be in Austin with so many other awesome quilty friends, I’m not sure how effective any attempts at winding down might be since I’m sure we’ll all be pretty amped up from all of the QuiltCon excitement. Both classes will be appropriately paced for folks who have or haven’t tried either technique before. They will be loads of fun.

Savor Each Stitch workshop at Gather Here.

Makers Gonna Make


Yesterday was my class at Gather Here in Cambridge. It was great and so much fun. We worked on Facing East from my new book.

They have this wonderful annex above the shop with tons of light and very ample work space, as well as more fabric which makes it colorful and so lovely.

I was also able to get all of the quilts from the book to the shop, so they’ve got them scattered around in the shop below and on the walls in the work rooms.
