Happy New Year Everyone,
I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable time over the season, The year is already flying by I have been cuddling grandchildren as much as possible while home over Christmas and planning my trips away around family events for the year is always challenging, I am getting better at the schedule and time management...but time will tell how that continues!
All I need to do is try and schedule more time at the machine to create more on my BERNINA Q20, I have so many things going round in my head and lots of work in progress I need to get back to, I am sure you can relate to this as well, it seems part of the creatives mind!
Its nearly time to hit the road again with my first workshop trip coming up, I will be teaching at Kate Sewing Centre with host Kate Hansen in Melbourne near Bundoora 22-23 Jan and then at The Sewing Connection in Pakenham with Sue and Sandy 26-29 Jan, it's lovely to connect each year with these girls and I think this is my 11 year teaching for them down south.
For more information on these workshops check out my workshop schedule. Some of the images below are what will be themes for these classes...I love all of them so I cannot wait to get started back to inspire and be inspired as I watch ladies enjoy the process of creating and style their individual projects!
I am looking forward to connecting and getting Creative with everyone that comes to classes this year, We will have lots of fun chopping up fabrics and stitching new surfaces.
There is lots of exciting plans for 2019 and into 2020 and I have started with this new website and my first Blog its exciting and scary learning new ways to do things...and I am on a steep learning curve atm which is getting me enthusiastic about whats to come.
We have had a major project going for awhile now & I will hopefully move into my new studio space soon, a place where I can develop new ideas with classes, connecting with everyone more from this new space and getting creative with so many ideas... I have been learning to be very patience these past few months with it all being so close to completion, Its nearly there! so watch out for the celebrations when I get in!
