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.
I’m super excited to announce that I have a new workshop to offer to guilds and groups, called Experiments in Dimensional Sewing! After teaching myself lots of these techniques, I’m super exited to share them with you. It’s customizable to a half, full or multi day class, which is perfect for any of your group’s needs. If you are looking for a speaker/teacher for your guild or group, I hope you would consider me!
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!
On June 25th and 26th, I’ll be in the Rust-Tex booth demoing Mixed Media ATCs. It’s booth 214, 215, 216 in Aisle F. Please come out and see me! More info on Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Fair is here!
