For the past year, the best way to teach my students was online with Creative Spark classes. But happily, I have one last live gig to attend in person. It’s my favorite teaching venue- Quilters’ Affair in Sister, Oregon.
Quilter’s Affair takes place July 4 through July 9 this year. It’s an opportunity to learn from a wonderful group of teachers. On Saturday, after a week of invigorating classes, the largest outdoor quilt show takes place. Join us and feast your eyes on quilts displayed around the charming town of Sisters.
I’ll be teaching four classes: Libby’s Leaves, Free-Form Embroidery on Wool and Felt, Put a Bird on It, and my favorite Tiny Homes. I hope you will join me for this event. Family obligations have kept me from traveling to teach for a few years, but I couldn’t pass up this opportunity to be with you at Quilters’ Affair.
Ever wonder what quilt teachers do when they get together? They goof off, that’s what they do! Here you see a group of my cohorts lounging around during lunch at last year’s International Quilt Festival in Houston. As you can see, these people are “professionals” at all times.

We do have fun together and I’m looking forward to seeing them again this year in October. I’m teaching 5 half-day classes on fused art quilts and free-form embroidery. And I’m giving an exciting lecture that’s all about me me me too.
Soon I’m off to Sisters OR to teach a class at Quilter’s Affair called Felt Like Gardening. Felt Like Gardening #5 above is an example of what my students can make with the many felt shapes they’ll get in their kits.
You may recognize this piece from a similar project found inJoyful Stitching called Folk Art Garden. Using a step-out or stage in the construction process prepared for the book, I changed it up and added more stitchery.
One can never go wrong with more embroidery.
Hope to see you at Sisters!
