Recap of my visit with the North Suburban Needle Arts Guild

The fine ladies of the North Suburban Needle Arts Guild invited me to speak and teach at their guild in early February.  They wanted to learn about eTextiles, and I was so happy to oblige!

The lecture, “Intro to eTextiles” was a big hit!  Check out the packed room of members!

The two day class started with 6 inches of snow in the Chicago area overnight, and I woke up thinking that maybe they would cancel the class.  When I got to the parking lot, it was plowed and waiting for students!  Nineteen of the 21 students showed up!  That’s AMAZING!  These were dedicated needleworkers, and they wanted to learn, which is what I hoped I gave them!

We made eTextile books on the first day, and light up voodoo/squeeze dolls the second.  We had such a good time.  Look at the amazing work they made!

That was some really fantastic work by my students and I am proud to share it with you.  As always, if you want me to teach or lecture to your guild, I’d be excited to book a date.

My Recent LED ATCs Class!

I had a great time at the Fiber Art Divas meeting last Monday, where I taught my LED Artist Trading Cards Class!  Take a look at the fabulous work my students did!

Every piece is so different!
No one in this class used the suggested patterns, they all branched out on their own, which is awesome!
Everyone’s project lit up!  That always makes me happy!
How cool is this group?  Love these ladies…
Even abstracts are cool with lights!
So cool!
This was a blast to teach, and we had a lot of fun!
