Footstool classes coming up soon!

photoMy footstools always get a lot of attention, and YES they are a fun addition to my classes.  I teach the class over two days, generally about 2 weeks apart (since there is homework to do between the classes).  The classes are so fun!  At the end of the second class you end up with a FINISHED project, not something you have to take home to finish!  Of course I’ve seen it done in dozens of different fabric collections and from cotton, flannel, silk ties, fleece, home dec fabrics and corduroy! IMG_0066

There are a couple of opportunities coming up soon to join a class!  For any of you in the Roseburg, Oregon area, call The Country Lady quilt shop for a class scheduled March 30th and April 13th.IMG_0414

Just a few weeks later there will be a class in Eugene, Oregon at Piece By Piece on May 4th and 18th.    I’d love to see you at either of these classes.  They tend to sell out and have a waiting list, so don’t wait too long to join the fun!Footstool Project

Connecting Threads!

redblack pincushion

Conecting Threads is a fun quilter’s resource! They have an on-line catalog as well as a hand held catalog that comes in the mail.  It’s chock-full of fabric, notions, kits, books and inspiration.  And guess what?? They have started carrying my “Color Wheel Pincushion Kit”! It’s such a cute little pincushion!  I hope you’ll check out the site, I know you’ll find something to love!

“Mini-Me”! Color Wheel Pincushion!

SWEEEEET!  You’re gonna love this pincushion!  It’s been so fun to design and make, I’ve made a few already with a variety of fabric collections.  It hardly takes any fabric at all, and goes together so fast.  Make it today, use it tonight!  You’ve seen my big footstool, and this is the “mini-me” version in a 4″ diameter!  Perfect for treating yourself, or for gifts.  I’ve been able to pull together a kit which includes the foam, crushed walnut shells, tufting cord, felt, instructions and the plywood base with hardware to install your purchased feet.  All you add is the fabric and feet!  What could be easier!  I think I’ll make a truck-load of these, just for the fun of it!  When you orderyours, I’ll send it out the next day!
