Just one more

Just one more

My favorite pic from Luke’s show at Blu Dot, simply because it shows off the sheer bits so well and she caught my little car parked right underneath it.

First of all, if you aren’t familiar with Luke’s work, go check it out right here. Amazing, right? He’s talented and smart and thinks in ways that I can’t quite understand sometimes, but I’m always immensely impressed with his work. I’ve been lucky enough to get to do some work with him, including those white…

Quilt In Public Day – June 15

Quilt In Public Day – June 15

Don’t forget to take it outside tomorrow! June 15 is Quilt in Public Day in Europe, but there’s no reason not to celebrate stateside, as well. Join me in taking your stitches out in public. Quilt proud, quilt public! 🙂 Don’t forget to tag your pics on Instagram, Twitter and now on Facebook! #quiltinpublic

Let’s Sew!

Let’s Sew!

If you live in the Portland/Vancouver area, I hope you can join me tomorrow night, June 7th, to sew-sew-sew for the orphans in Vietnam. I will be bringing along patterns for bucket hats for adults and toddlers, the lovely Popover Sundress (that’s the dresses they’re sporting so sweetly in the pic above), and some generic…

Quilting in Public Day is coming up

Quilting in Public Day is coming up

So June 15 is Quilting in Public Day in the EU, but apparently the celebration hasn’t really crossed the pond yet. I’m thinking we need to bring it on over this year and I hope you’ll join me and take your quilt somewhere out in public to work on. I got an early start, working…

Quilt Market Crazies

Quilt Market Crazies

Quilt Market was this past weekend and in case you’ve never heard of it (and I hadn’t until a couple years ago!),  let me briefly explain: Twice yearly, the quilting industry gathers for a three-plus day convention to offer up a look at the new patterns, tools and fabrics. It’s for the trade, so it’s…

The Tank Team

The Tank Team

Have I told you how much I enjoy teaching people how to sew? It’s a surprise even to me! I mean, I knew I liked teaching after leading the EFL classes in Vietnam and it’s blatantly obvious that I love sewing, but putting the two together has been a slow merger. Silly, I know. This…

Happy Birthday, Threadbias

Happy Birthday, Threadbias

I’m proud to say I’ve been on Threadbis since the beginning. I’m not even sure how I stumbled onto it early last spring, but I did. It’s been inspiring watching the site grow and develop, adding more sewists and quilters every day. They were super great in helping me spread the word about last fall’s…

What I Did For LQS Day

What I Did For LQS Day

Our FabShop team did a small shop hop yesterday, visiting quilt shops in Vancouver, Washington to see just what was going on out there to celebrate. Our first stop was Just for Fun! Quilting (2700 NE Andresen Rd) where I got to see some long-arm quilting happen, both computerized and freehand. She has a great…

Today! It’s I Love My LQS Day!

Today! It’s I Love My LQS Day!

It’s here! It’s finally here! It seems like pretty much forever ago that we started toying with the idea of making ‘I Love My Local Quilt Shop Day‘ into more than just a holiday marked on calendar. I don’t even remember what company made the calendar, but the day wasn’t highly promoted and FabShop figured…
