All week I have been gathering supplies for teaching two MIU classes, Open Studios and one other Quilting Arts event I will be doing at International Quilt Festival that I don’t think I can talk about yet. It is amazing how much time that takes. The hardest part has been estimating how much paint 25 people will go through painting the mixed media fabric and condensing a 3 hour class into one hour, it is going to be crazy.
I am so grateful for the internet, without it I would have had a hard time finding a resource for affordable paint brushes, I need to have 50 bristle brushes and foam brushes for the class, that alone could have cost more than what I am being paid. I hate to admit we will be using cheap brushes, no choice here. I am filling in for someone on friday morning so now I will be teaching friday morning at 10:30 as well as sunday at 12:30.
