Rowenta Sports Arena at the Chicago School of Fusing
Congratulations upon your graduation from the Chicago School of Fusing! That’s what I always say to my students when they complete one of my fusing classes.
And there are many recent graduate to congratulate. They all did beautiful work and I’m so grateful that they took a class with me at the IQF show in Houston or through their local guild.
So, in honor of all the graduates out there who wish a diploma to hang proudly in their studio or office, here’s a PDF that you can print out. (Thank you Judy K for this great design!) Press on!
Dyed in the Wool by Laura Wasilowski
Recently I met up with someone who has taken on and finished one of my free Stitch Tutorials called Dyed in the Wool. It makes me happy to know that she found the tutorial useful and was willing to give it a try. Where is this intrepid stitcher from? Why the Racine Lighthouse Quilters Guild in Wisconsin, of course.
Meet my new best friend, Sandy. She brought her finished Dyed in the Wool project to the guild meeting and really brightened up my day. Her color choices, beautiful free-form stitching, and sunny personality instantly charmed me. Thank you, Sandy, for sharing your work with us!
Nut House #1 by Laura Wasilowski
I love teaching locally. No flights to catch, no planes to board, no stress. Just a calm ride through the countryside to visit with a local guild like the Racine Lighthouse Quilters Guild in Wisconsin.
You’ll find me there next week where I’m teaching Another Nut House (designs based upon actual experience.)
Nut House #3 (detail) by Laura Wasilowski
In this fun workshop students begin with a basic acorn pattern and end up improvising their own house designs. You never know where their imaginations will lead!
