For the past few years I have said that I'd like to be teaching quilting. That is definitely happening this fall. Here's my teaching schedule:
Tuesdays in September at The Sewing Room in Lombard, 1:00 - 3:00 - Reversible Baby Quilt
Saturdays, Sept 8, 22, 29, at The Sewing Room, 10 - 12 - Baby Fence Rail (oops, this one was cancelled - maybe later...)
Sunday, Sept 9 - 1 - 3 at Quiltfabric.com in Willowbrook - "Make and Take" Reversible Holiday Place Mat
Sunday, Oct 27, and Sunday, Nov 4, at SusanMarie's - 135th and Ridgeland - Reversible BabyQuilt
These three shops are very different from one another, and it's going to be interesting and fun to get to know each of these shops better. I haven't figured out yet whether this kind of teaching will be financially worthwhile. But I do already know that I'm excited about each one of these workshops and look forward to each experience.
Meanwhile, I'm still plugging away on Cecilia's quilt, thinking about the quilt for the Jim Dandy, and wanting to make up more reversible quilts just because they are fun. There are a couple of new techniques that I want to experiment with. And neighbor Susan and I are going to a quilt expo in Madison, WI, to participate in some hands-on workshops and attend some lecture/demonstrations.
Words I couldn't say for a long time: I really love August and September!
