Next month I am going to International Quilt Festival Long Beach. I am so excited to check out the show, I haven’t been to this one yet, and visit friends on the west coast. I will be teaching two workshops in Make It University, Fanciful Felted Fruits and Metal Magic.
If you really like stitching with colorful embroidery floss and working with felted wool or have never done it before, Fanciful Felted Fruits is a great little workshop, it will be friday afternoon at 4:30 (July 24th). You can check out some of the fun fruits that were made in my workshop last fall in Houston and these beautiful fruits made by Frieda Anderson and Laura Wasilowski.
I will be teaching Metal Magic on Saturday (July 25th) at 4pm. In this workshop we use Lesley Riley’s transfer paper TAP, sewing, embossing and cutting aluminum metal with decorative scissors and painting grungeboard, to make a fun little wall hanging.
I will also be doing Open Studios, but I don’t have the schedule for that yet. Open Studios is a great time to ask questions to the artists who are demonstrating their different techniques.
