Last week I had an email from Sonja about one of my classes. She wanted to know when I was next teaching improv triangles. With my new venture, The Creative Retreat, coming up so soon and a trip to Salt Lake City for Quilt Market before then, I’ve not scheduled any extra classes on top of my beginners courses at my LQS, Addicted to Fabric.
Sonja wanted to know if she couldn’t do a class, perhaps I had a pattern or technique sheet she could buy… Well, I did. I do! Only, I’ve not sold my patterns as a stand alone before – I use them in the classes I teach but have never really got to listing them for sale – the whole pdf vs paper pattern debate had me stumped. Thanks to a prompt, I’ve just listed two patterns for sale in my online store. Both Kite Tail Tango and Quilt the Universe are available now. Thanks Sonja for prompting me to get going on this!
Remember the ice cream I shared last week? Well, I’m ready to take the wrapping off and share my exciting secret with you! Technically it doesn’t involve ice cream, although, come to think of it, ice cream would make the perfect dessert at a quilting retreat, don’t you think? Yes, a Quilting Retreat!
I’m delighted to introduce to you, The Creative Retreat. For more details, click here if you’re interested.
I can’t say much right now, but I can assure you that it is exciting. It’s on par with the crazy bursting excitement you felt as a little kid when your parents told you you could have an ice-cream.
I know it’s a bit annoying that I can’t share the details with you right now (believe me, I’m busting at the seams to shout it out) but I wanted to let you know why things have been a bit quiet here lately and might continue to be for another few weeks at least.
What I can tell you though is that the exciting thing involves quilting and inspiration and fun and laughter and, well, that’s about as much as I can say right now. So, forgive me please, as I am a little bit busy with getting all the details set behind the scenes and as soon as all the ice cream flavours are decided and the cones are made, I will be back here with all the details, believe me, you will want to see this!
Plus, there’s QuiltCon to get ready for! Oh, I’m so excited. I can’t wait to see my old friends and meet new people. Please do come and say hi if you are there and you see me, I would really love to meet you. And if you can’t make it, feel free to comment on here or on my Instagram or Facebook accounts and make a request to see anything specific, I’ll do my best to post a special photo for you.
Oh and before I go, thank you so much for your thoughts (comments, emails etc) on my last post #foodforfriday, I look forward to getting that going when I get back from QuiltCon.
