The Workshop Worked!

Well, as usual, I was a nervous wreck in anticipation of the crazy quilting workshop I taught yesterday but  I was especially happy to have the opportunity to teach a group from the Calgary Guild of Needle and Fibre Arts.  What could be better than sharing what you know with a group of accomplished stitchers?  A lot of these ladies I have known since I first joined the guild about 25 years ago and it is a great social event as well whenever they get together.

As usual, there was scads of supplies to explore and share - always a treasure hunt for the perfect piece of fabric.

 My friend, Barb, organized everything including a wonderful lunch.  A trip to Costco provided the basics - a very tasty and clever way to cater a great lunch for the group.

Here is my buddy, Barb - good to see her having a chance to relax and stitch after all her hard work organizing all the logistics.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the class and to learn lots.  Almost everyone finished piecing their block and moved on to start embellishing.


 A few handpieced and the rest shared a couple machines to do theirs.

This time I brought my little light box with me and that came in handy withg transferring the pattern to the muslin.

I think everyone seemed pretty happy with what they learned and accomplished.  I hope they enjoyed the day as much as I did.
