I just returned home from a wonderful few days in Atlanta, Georgia. I taught 3 full day classes which were all full to capacity and shared my passion at the Guild Meeting where I talked about my quilting journey and shared my quilts.
The second day I taught my 'Nifty Notes' journal. We used my kits but I encouraged each student to embellish theirs using different stitches. On my return Kathy Collins had already sent me a picture of her finished project. She quilted hers and added a few extra stitches.
If you would like one of your own to keep yourself organized kits are available on my website. www.suespargo.com/smallgifts.html
Wendy my sister and I have two new lines of ribbons from Renaissance Ribbons. I am starting to use them on many of my own projects but I love the use of the 'Folk art Flower' and 'Animal Train' ribbons on these projects.
They all made a wonderful start to a unique piece. My classes were so well received I have been asked to return to teach a two day workshop in 2014. Thanks everyone for making me feel so welcome.
I was also delight as many students shared projects they had completed using my patterns. Barbara Barnes finished my Peony Bloom pincushion.
This pattern is available in my 'Contemporary Folk' book along with kits on the website. www.suespargo.com/kits.html
My fingers itch to stitch when I return from teaching embellishment classes. Oh how I love to hand stitch!
