Don’t Miss OUT!

Sheila at machine 002MQX is coming up fast! The second week of October I’ll be teaching in Portland at MQX West. All you longarm-ers out there will want to see my new book in person, and there’s still room in my classes to sign up for  “Springy Things” and “Wreaths and Medallions”, both offered on October 9th. I have all sorts of new designs to share, and promise to make it a fun and informative time! Check out the MQX website to register. There will be a fun social night on Tuesday the 8th, where I’ll be meeting and greeting and showing off some new items. It will be a great time, looking forward to seeing you there!

Next Footstool Class Dates!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We’ve set dates for the next Footstool Class at Piece By Piece in Eugene. Mark your calendars for August 3rd and 17th. I teach this class in two parts, with some time in-between for a little homework!  In the first class you’ll learn how to make the “upholstery”, then in the second class we will construct the footstool!  It’s always so fun to see the fabric choices and creativity quilters use in choosing their footstool feet and for the tufting button!  I LOVE it when someone uses something really original!  Once I had a friend use some vintage filigree claw  feet from a bath tub–they are outstanding!  Call Piece By Piece 541 743-0266 to register.  It only takes about 3 hours per class, so it’s not a huge comitment of time.  You’ll still have plenty of time to enjoy the summer sunshine!

Some of the pictures included today are from quilters who made them on their own without the class.  They ordered the kit and sent me pictures when they had finished.   I’m so proud of them!  If you want to order a kit (it comes with great instructions, including LOTS of pictures) click over to my SHOP page.
