Calgary - 4 More fun filled days of teaching

 I have had a lot of fun teaching for another 4 days here in Calgary. We played for two days making a large sewing case, stitching circles in my Circle Play class and a day of working on any of my projects.

 The gals here are great stitchers and Deirdre has an incredible selection of threads in her store so it makes for some very fun combinations of stitches and fibers.

 Many students also incorporated many of our ribbons in the backgrounds as well as for stems. I just love the way they work so well with the wool and the appliqué.

 I taught eight stitches in the Circle Play class and then we spent the afternoon combining these stitches to make some very fun combinations.

I have had a wonderful time here in Calgary. I will be returning next year in September to teach for 8 days. This will be my fifth year teaching at Out of Hand.
It is very special retuning annually as I spend time with many of the same students and I have loved to see each students creative style develop.
Right now I am spending a couple of days with Deirdre at the store playing. On Friday I will be flying to Houston for Quilt Market to meet my daughter Kelly to shop for new and exciting goodies for the website.
Take care

  2. I love all the unique stitching and embellishments you use in class, would love to see a book with photos as reference that we could use when we do wool work.
