SewDown Nashville!

Here’s a little bit of what went down at the SewDown.

 

Robert Kaufman made sure there were mini charms with some of my favorite fabrics waiting for each student.

After getting registered, the whole gang made a trip out to Anna Maria Horner’s home and studio. It was gorgeous–no surprise! Her family also entertained us with some wonderful live music.

We paid a visit to a brand-new shop in Nashville called The Fabric Studio. It was lovely.

There was even a Botanics sighting…

It was a truly fantastic group of students, and we worked on my Aerial quilt project.

Lectures by Elizabeth Dackson, Alexia Abegg, and Maddie Kertay were also very memorable. Here’s Alexia and her Marcelle’s Medallion…so stunning.

I had such a blast. Everyone was full of enthusiasm, so talented, and just tons of fun to be around. Thanks so much to the MQG for hosting such a fabulous event, and big thanks for everyone who came out. You guys are all great.

 

For anyone who missed it, mark your calendars for QuiltCon 2015. You won’t want to miss it.

Did I mention that I will be teaching and lecturing…?

 

I’ll also be teaching loads more the rest of the year, including at SewOK, Camp Stitchalot, and many others. Check out my events page for more details.

 

Hopefully I’ll see you soon!
