Quilt Retreat Anyone?

Posted on August 12th, by Amy in 52 weeks, Quilt Retreat. 14 comments

Hi friends!  I was excited to get an invitation in my email a couple weeks ago to teach at a new Quilt Retreat here in Utah!  Who me!?

Well, I do love quilty friends, and encouraging the love of quilting, so, YES me!  After a chat with Syndey on the phone,  and a slew of emails I have dates for next year.  Early enough that you can even put it on your Christmas list – I see your wheels turning…We will be working on my Balanced Connections Quilt for the weekend, and opening your horizons to the beautiful possibilities of solid fabrics.  I’m so excited about some hands on experience with teaching and hopefully meeting some of you!

What do you think?  Is there a quilt retreat in your future?

The dates are January 27-29 and March 10-12, 2011.

I’ve changed where I keep things a bit … Read More »

For the Love of Blogging!

I love blogging.  Hopefully that comes across here as I write daily!  Having this portal to a social life via my computer is amazing, but there are days when it’s work.

(I found this tray and had to share it with you!  Love it!!)

I have read a lot about blogging too, on other blogs, naturally!  Many offer ebooks about this and that, but I’ve not been baited until I came across Tara’s ebook “52 Weeks of Blogging your Passion“.  This ebook is all about encouraging me to blog more, and from perspectives that I hadn’t thought about yet. (It could be for you too if you are interested!)  So, occasionally you will see posts that refer to this challenge, and today is one of them!  As we begin the new year, I would like to share my mission, my vision for … Read More »
