I'm back from Cleveland! I had a wonderful time taping a segment for Quilting Arts TV season 5. The segment will be about machine stitching on various recyclables. And I had an even better time taping a Quilting Arts DVD Workshop. It was also quite nerve wracking too.. hopefully I wasn't too much of a mess on camera. My workshop is about transforming your art with unique texture (thus the tease in the previous post) and I think it will have lots of information for many different types of fiber artist. Here are the artists of the day in the green room: Pokey is checking out her schedule, Andrea Bishop from the Electric Quilt Company, Teri Harris Lucas is practicing on a sewing machine and Sarah Vedeler is updating Facebook. Lots of fun and interesting conversations took place in that green room while we were preparing for our segments or just waiting our turn. This is Jeanne Delpit from Bernina, she got to show us all the fun new sewing machines to play with. I kept myself from playing too much, as I didn't want to tempt my credit cards.. ahem.. Jeanne also gave me a pattern of a really cool tote that I am dying to make right away. Thanks Jeanne!Here is my table set up in the green room, actually three tables at one point. Everything was laid out on trays in the order that I needed it. Looks very organized doesn't it? That didn't last too long... Here's Pokey and I right before taping my segment. Guess I was too nervous to smile... A group shot of Sarah, Susan Brubaker Knapp, Jeanne, Diane Giancola from Rit Dyes and moi.
I'll eventually have details on when and were my segment and DVD can be seen, and I'll share all that as soon as possible. Thank you Pokey for the opportunity!
