Teaching in North Carolina

Friday, I flew to North Carolina to teach a Tsukineko Inks workshop on Saturday, to a group of wonderful textile artists. Karen Newman Fridy, my host and organizer for this leg of the trip, have talked about doing a class since we met on a trip I took to Winston-Salem 2 years ago. It was fun coming back and spending time with Karen and her art quilt group. There were a lot of great painters in this class, don't you think?

On Sunday, I arrived in beautiful Asheville NC. In the evening, I met with Amy Harry and her friend Nancy.

Amy was in one of the first online Color Theory classes I taught four years ago and when she became program chair for the Asheville quilt guild she booked me to come teach. So it was great fun to meet her in person after all this time.

We had a fantastic dinner at Salsa's, Mexican-Carribean cuisine, that we followed up with chocolate decadence at French Broad Chocolate Lounge.

We split a divine chocolate layer cake and a pots de creme and I had a pot of tea made in a french press with a hand made pottery mug to drink it in. Now that is my kind of bar!


  1. Beautiful paintings, would love to take that class.


  2. I am so excited because two of my friends and I are going to take this class with you in St. Paul in June.It looks wonderfully fun. I am not too good at drawing, but am participating in the wonderful Sketchbook Challenge to help me along. I'm looking forward to meeting you. Thanks for sharing!

  3. And what a wonderful class it was!!! Hope you come back to North Carolina soon!

  4. Hi Deb, don't worry you will not need to draw for this class, I will provide images for you to work from. I'm looking forward to seeing you in June!

  5. Thanks Eileen, I had a lot of fun too, I hope to be back in North Carolina teaching again, spread the word you'd like to see me there :-)

  6. It was so great to finally meet you in person, Judy! I had a wonderful time eating my way through downtown Asheville with you. Until next time...
