In Daytona, in February! AQS has added a hand quilting class to my roster and I would love to see you there.
If you’ve never hand quilted, this is an excellent class in which to learn the hand quilting stitch that is tricky until you know how it works. Once you can do it, hand quilting becomes a very relaxing way to pass time.
Call me crazy but isn’t the idea of quilting in Florida in February irresistible! I will definitely be there and I do hope you can join me! On Wednesday 2/26, the very first day of Daytona Quilt Week, I’m teaching a block from my Hexie Quilt Garden book. In this hand applique class I show you how to needleturn applique a pretty circle. I promise you that it is way easier than you think it will be. And see the points on the leaves? I show you how to sew those as well. Click here for more info.
For those of you who like fast and fun 3-hour classes, on the last day of the show I’m teaching a no-sew class on color. It’s a low-stress class where you learn practical concepts about color. Students always leave this class with big grins and a feeling of color confidence. Click here to find out more about the Color Class.

Registration for next year’s Empty Spools Seminars has begun and I would love to see your smiling face in my class! I’ll be teaching a colorful independent study.
‘Independent’ means that you can work on any project you like. It can be one of my patterns or someone else’s design. It can be any style from traditional to modern to art, pieced or appliqued, by hand or machine.
‘Colorful’ means that I’ll share lots of information about color for an hour on set-up day. The next morning we will spend some no-sew time playing with color before you jump into your project. This is a simple, yet powerful, exercise that my students always love. What you learn will help you make fabric choices during the rest of the class.
If you’ve never been to an Empty Spools class, it is definitely time to treat yourself!
Sign-ups have begun for classes at the AQS show in Lancaster and I do hope to see you there! Dates are March 21-24. That’s me in the upper left-hand corner, along with the other teachers who will be in attendance. Click here to find links to each instructor.
You can see the classes I’ll be teaching below, or you can click here to find all of my classes.
The Needle Art Seminar is a special event in a lovely place and I do hope to see many of you there! I’ll be teaching classes in hand applique, foundation paper piecing, and color. There are 4 other wonderful teachers, giving you even more class options.
Registration begins on Dec. 4 and I’ve been told that last year several classes filled in the first 12 hours. Click here to see the brochure with class listings, details about the event, and the registration form.
Registrations can be sent via email or fax any time after midnight early Dec 4 morning but not before. That is the best way to register. Fill out the registration form, scan it into your computer, and email it. Or just fax it. Don’t take a photo of the form and text it because it’s not legible at the other end and you might not get into the classes you want. The classes must be paid for at the time of registration in full.
Hotel room reservations are made by mail or fax using the special form that will be sent to those who are registered for classes. The form is included in the confirmation packet you will receive. The hotel will not take phone reservations for this package via phone.
If you have more questions, call the number on the form. If that doesn’t work, email me and I’ll provide you with another number.
