Prepping for MIU

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.


  1. Oh, I so wish I could attend! I'm all the way on the other side of the country, and never get to go anywhere, in any event. (chained in the dungeon with only the hum of my sewing machine for comfort...)

    These fruits are so bright and adorable. And I love the metal magic and eagerly await your sale of these in kit form available to travel/class deprived folks like me!!!

    I hope you have an amazing time at Festival, and post about it here!

  2. I'll beeeee there! Can't wait! WEeeeeeeeee!

  3. Jo, looking forward to meeting and seeing your there!
