Sewing Summit


I'm so excited to share some big news with you this morning: I'm teaching at Sewing Summit 2012! I've been sitting on this secret for months now, so it feels good to finally spill it. Elizabeth and I are going to be team-teaching a class on foundation paper-piecing!

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know how much I love foundation piecing. It opens up so many design possibilities that can't be achieved any other way, and it helps you really nail the accuracy on even the most elaborate blocks. I know a lot of people are intimidated by foundation piecing, and it is a very different approach if you're used to the standard methods. But there's nothing like a real-time hands-on class when it comes to learning a skill like this, so I'm really looking forward to this classroom opportunity and working with each and every one of you that signs up!

And of course, this means I am also attending Sewing Summit! There are many other classes that look wonderful, and I'm hoping to attend some of them when I'm not on duty in my own sessions. And I am so very excited to see some familiar friendly faces from last year, as well as many new ones. Is it October yet? : )

Unfortunately, Sewing Summit 2012 registration is already sold out! But there is a wait list, in case more tickets become available later. Click here for more information.

  9. Ah man, now I know how I missed it. I was too busy bouncing around Disneyworld with the kids. It opened after I left for the park and closed before I returned.

    Can't say I'd have traded the day for it, though so I put myself on the waitlist and hope they release more tickets. If not, those going will have so much fun.
