Gathering Supplies

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.


  1. How about a little side issue called, "Studios part 2 - packing for IQF"...

    You are not alone. lists, anyone?

  2. Looks like a great, but fun, undertaking.

  3. Hi. I saw you in Cloth Paper Scissors Studios today. I love your sewing table. Can you please tell me where I can get one just like it?

  4. Hi Erin,

    I assume you are talking about the small portable table in front of my big table. I bought that little table years ago at the Bernina store in Austin TX with two different inserts, one for each sewing machine. Now my daughter uses it when she sews. I found it on this website with the option of buying the insert for your particular machine if you scroll down the page.

    Several sites had the table but they did not sell the special inserts.

    Hope this helps,

  5. I got my issue yesterday with your beautiful wonderful! Congratulations!
