Olive Grace, Cortland OH

I taught an embellishment class at a wonderful quilt store in my area called 'Olive Grace' owned by Kori Turner My daughter Aimee goes to school in the area so I picked her up and she helped for the day setting up and selling the items in my little store.
The students worked on embellishing leaves and circles using all hand dyed and textural threads and many fun and interesting stitches.
Aimee did a great job setting up a little store of all my embellishments hand dyed velvet. Doesn't it make you want to stitch?
Kathy Kori's mom catered breakfast and lunch. She is a wonderful cook and the food was fabulous.
I am delighted as Kori and Kathy are traveling to Orvieto in Italy month to take my class as well as experience the wonderful Italian culture. I will be returning to teach a class at Olive Grace next year.
Take care


  1. Looks like a great time! My parents are both from Warren Ohio, and I still have relatives there. My Dad was in the Navy so we travelled all over the US. I am now in Va, and all of my siblings and Mom live in Fla. Next year I may drag my Mom from Fla and drive to take your class, and visit my Mom's family.

  2. What a wonderful time everyone had. Wish I lived close enough to attend.

  3. Looks like a wonderful retreat. I was in our shop on the day they were doing one of your quilts for a class. They did a bit of machine quilting and hand work. I love the idea of using a machine, but you can't get the look that the heavier threads have.


  4. Agréable journée!!!Les élèves ont l'air très concentrées....Il faut dire que le prof. est super!Bravo!

  5. Looks like a wonderful time for everyone...can't believe I live so close and haven't been to the shop yet...will have to rectify that soon!

  6. The food looks fab too. What a good time you must have had. Maybe next year for me?
