Wonderfil Threaducation

I flew off to Canada to become a Wonderfil Threaducator.   The thread wall in the long arm room. Lots of yumminess. Portrait quilt of Wonderfil owner, Andrew Ngai. Wonderfil also sells the wool for Sue Spargo's line. So many beautiful threads! I met some great women and learned a lot about some great thread. Threaducators: Me, Berndette Kent, Nina Clotfelter and Valerie Mizzoni. And of course you can't go to Canada without trying Poutine. . . . . .and Nanaimo bars!

Quilting for a Friend

A friend and I traded favors.  I free motion quilted a lap quilt for her and had a great time creating flowers. Keiko was very helpful.

Craft Napa 2019

It was another fun year at Craft Napa. This year started off with a get to know you dinner in which I met up with friends from home, as well as new friends from here and there. Making New Friends. Patti Pitts from the Utah Surface Design Group  So Many cute Postcards to raise money for the Animals misplaced by the Camp Fires in California. I donated a few, and bought quite a few as well.  I took Libby Williamson's Tea Bag Revival class. Krista Lopez is a local Napa resident who I met during my first Craft Napa. Libby photobombing Jenny Lyon and I during class.  The beginning of my tea bag art.  Libby giving us important instructions about free motion quilting. Almost finished! I need to do more hand stitching and then attach the tea bags to a backing. The Tea Bag Revival class. Two of the great postcards I purchased.  They were made by Stacy Hurt .   The luncheon featured a wonderful lecture by fabric

Craft Napa Backpack

Last year I purchased a yard of Craft Napa fabric with the idea of creating a backpack from it. The fabric has sat around all year and now it's time to go back to Craft Napa, so it is time to get 'er done! I used the Manhattan Bag pattern from Vanilla House designs. Keiko supervised every step. "Oh, you cleared this space for me, right?!" All ready to go!
