Very Very Fun!

I am thrilled to announce that I'll be teaching a mini-workshop at Make It University during the International Quilt Festival in Houston in November. I'll be teaching "Painted Paint Chip Mini-Journals" on Sunday, November 6 at 11:30 am.Here is the official description:

Create a mini journal with a whimsical “painted paint chip” cover. Learn to cut positive and negative stencils using freezer paper and tons of ideas for other painted, stamped, and doodled elements. Fill the journal with a variety of pages and finish using an easy Japanese stab binding.

In the past, I've had tons of fun participating as a student at MIU workshops at Festival in Houston. I am thrilled and honored to be teaching this year. Pokey and her gang create such a wonderful energy and spirit around the Quilting Arts and Cloth Paper Scissors booths on the show floor. I'm excited to be a part of it.

I'm spending time preparing samples and gathering supplies.
I'm hole punching, paper measuring and cutting, stamp making, etc.

I hope the students who join me on Sunday will get a kick out of this fun project. So, if you are going to Houston and will still be around on Sunday morning, please please please come see me and say hello!
