Open Studios in Houston!

I’ll be demoing how to put lights into quilts at the International Quilt Festival in Houston this week!  It’s all part of Open Studios, sponsored this year by Craftsy!


Come by and see how I put lights into quilts and see the coolest new technology and conductive threads I’m using!  You won’t want to miss it!  Come by and say you saw this on my blog and I’ll give you something special!!

UPDATE:  I wanted to tell you this earlier, but wanted to clear it with them first, but I’ll be demoing Superior Threads’ newest line of conductive thread and LED products!  Check it out!
