Getting Ready

I am really looking forward to this weekend. I am going with 2 friends to Louisville to take a class from Libby Lehman. For those of you who might not be familiar with her work, she teaches threadplay. Another words she makes the design on her quilts with thread rather than bits of fabric.

Anyway, we are going to take a day class on Friday, and then going on to a retreat week-end. There will be a lot of other Art Quilters from the state organization, and it should be a fun and relaxing week-end. So, I have been going thru my sewing room and trying to decide what to take. Some of us are going to be working on trading cards, and since I have no idea what I am going to do, feel like I need to take the kitchen sink. I just hope with three of us in one car we can get it all in. Amazing how much stuff it takes to quilt!!!!!!!!!

I also have been working on presenting a workshop to our local guild this month. Each lady is going to bring in a jacket or shirt she already ownes and I will help each lady make something different . Should be fun for me as I have a background in garments and enjoy sharing my ideas. Hope to get some good pictures to share. Then I also have had to get my information in to teach a class again at Get-Away which is the state organization. That doesn' happen untill next June, but there is keen competition these days so don't want to be overlooked. Pepper Cory is going to be our main teacher for 2006.

I'm planning on joining the state guild soon...I'm in Louisville. I didn't know that Libby was going to be here until last week when I popped into Baer's last week. Also, Art quilter Mary Craik has her own gallery 2 blocks from Baer's. I've only peaked through the window as it was closed the other day when I stopped.

Welcome to the AQ Ring. I'm at Seamless Skin.
