State of the Studio: Packing

packingIt’s that time of year when packing up for the Houston show consumes two weeks of October. This year I’m teaching 5 (!) classes with each class of 30 people requiring a kit. Here you see kit preparation for class #366, Felt Like Gardening.

Felt Like Gardening #3 by Laura Wasilowski

This class is the most labor intensive kit. I’ve cut about 100 pre-cut felt shapes for each student to use in their creations, loaded thread rings with hand-dyed threads, cut felt for the backgrounds, and printed my booklets with embroidery stitch information. Sigh…….

And I’m giving one lecture called Art Quilts: The Musical on October 31 at 10 am. As this date also coincides with Halloween, you can expect a scary yet sweet production about quilt making.

    • Well, it does take longer if you count the time dyeing the fabric and thread. I really must get a less time consuming job.
