Over the next seven months I will be traveling to NYC, Austin and Boulder for very inspirational and fun sewing adventures!
First up is the Heather Ross Weekend Sewing in New York City! I will be hitting the Big Apple with two of my fellow sewing instructors from Fancy Tiger. Of course there will be lots of sewing. However, I anticipate even more shopping, eating, drinking and girl talk on this weekend than sewing. We shall see!
In the new year and after all the holiday madness is over it is off to Austin, TX for QuiltCon! I am most excited about getting to meet Jay McCarroll and make a fun skirt with him.
In April, just after my 43rd birthday, I get to participate in the first Makerie Sewing Retreat. This takes place in Boulder, Co. just a short drive from my home in Denver. I am too excited for words and I can’t wait. Amy Butler will be there! Yes, Amy Butler. I know. I will be the dork in the front row. There is still room if you want to join me!
I am madly in love with Denyse Schmidt’s new collection for FreeSpirit Chicopee! I had to make myself a dress out of this print. I used Anna Maria Horner’s Socialite Dress pattern. The yoke on the dress is made from some luscious Yuwa fabric from Japan.
