Do you have to plan ahead all the time like me? What’s your secret for success?
One of my challenges is preparing for events that are weeks, months, or even a year ahead of now. It’s important to be organized so I’m not caught off guard. (I can’t not tell you have often this happens!)
Right now I’m preparing to teach several classes at World Quilt New England in Manchester, NH. One of them is called Another Nut House (based on actual experience.) Would you like to see what this class is all about? Here’s a link to a video so you can preview the class offering: click Another Nut House.
Windy City #3 (detail) by Laura Wasilowski
If you are in Houston for the International Quilt Festival this November, please check out my quilt Windy City #3. I’ve just shipped it off for it’s entry into the art miniature category of the juried exhibit. So many talented artists display their artwork at this show. I can’t wait to see it!
It’s that time of year when Frieda and I travel to the lovely state of Kentucky for the American Quilter Society Show in Paducah. The hand-dyed fabric, thread, patterns, and quilts are packed and we’re ready for the 7 hour drive.
Come visit us at the Artfabrik/Friestyle booth in the Expo Center. Booth # 1224. Think, Christmas eve. (1224. Get it?)
If you are in Chicago for the International Quilt Festival, please check out the SAQA Stitched Together Exhibit. The show premiers at IQF and can be seen April 6-8, 2017. So many talented artists from the Illinois and Wisconsin region will have their artwork on display.
I’m so happy my quilt, Reading Lamp, will be on display at the IQF Chicago show April 6 – 8. We have some very dedicated volunteers who have put together this regional SAQA show. I am so grateful for all their work. Here’s a link to see other quilts in Stitched Together.
Windy City #2 (4″x 6″) by Laura Wasilowski
Windy City #2 is finished and ready to ship off to Wish Upon a Card. The next time I’ll see it will be in Sisters, OR. From July 3 – 7 I’m teaching 5 different workshops at Quilter’s Affair.
My return to Sisters will be a grand reunion. Not only will I see this little quilt framed and ready for auction but many friends attend the event too. (They will not be framed.) Good times!
