"cupcakes & cherries"
As Quilt Quest 2008 (www.robertkaufman.com/quiltquest/2008/) wraps up its year long coast-to-coast travel schedule, I realize how much more touring this 1st Place mini quilt & ice cream cone purse have done than I have lately! Exciting destinations included: Original Sewing & Quilt Festivals, Road to California, Original Creative Festivals, Pioneer Florida Museum, QuiltFest, & various guild shows. Thank you to everyone who went out to see this exhibit & who attended these fine shows! Thanks also for your kind reviews of show & work, including Purple Fan.
The good news is that as they return home this month , I can complete patterns & begin to offer classes for both! BTW: I will be teaching ilovefiberart ornament & cupcake classes at B-Sew Inn in Oklahoma City & Tulsa in October & November!
Speaking of classes: After attending yesterday's webinar training on Bernina's new DesignerPlus Version 6 software, I can't wait to see it arrive in stores! It offers many new features such as Corel Draw essentials, 11 new fonts, freehand sketching (no repeated left-right clicking!), 106 new embroidery designs, morphing, pattern carving & echo, "halo" quilting outlining of designs (loved this feature!). The smoothing tool looks like something I could use too, as my freehand drawing seems to be less steady these days! If you love to create your own embroidery designs, as I do, take a look at this product. The next webinar is Sept. 16th 12-1pm CST. berninausa
