Meet My Show Neighbor

I had a great time in Puyallup at SEWEXPO and getting to know my show neighbor Amy, sharing business ideas and sources. My booth was 10'x20' and hers was 10'x10'. Mine was a little too big and hers a little too small, so next year we are going to divide the space and each have a 10' x 15' booth space! Amy will be able to teach beading classes in her enlarged space and I will be just a little cozier -- a win/win for both of us.

Every time I exhibit at a show, I find a "gem" and this time it was Amy and her husband, Andrew, who brought us warm chocolate chip cookies from their RV oven!

Please check out Amy's website: Her designs are unique and very popular.

SAVE THE DATE: March 3 - 6, 2011 for next years show!

Earth Blessings Fabrics Have Arrived!

The NEW Earth Blessings fabrics by the yard and complete pattern kits are available now for purchase at!

Earth Blessings was inspired by Faith, Hope, and Charity's desire to be Earth-Friendly. Ladybugs, leaves, clouds, and a fun new patchwork design enhance this bright and colorful Art Panel and Fabric Collection.

You'll find quilt designs like Deborah's Capistrano Lily (shown here) by Quilting Sister Deborah from So fun and bold! The complete Kit includes the fabric, and bonus Earth Blessing Pattern Book rather than an individual pattern. Backing not included.

Come see what's new!

I know Mother's Day seems to be far off, but I wanted to give you plenty of time to register for High Tea at QUILT QUEST MMX in Toledo, Oregon on Saturday, May 8, 2010.

The city of Toledo is located 5 miles east of Newport on US 20 and is a wonderful gateway at the Oregon Coast. More than 100 quilts will be on display in the city's historic Main Street district from 10 AM - 4 PM. The event includes vendors offering patterns, designs, long-arm quilters and more.

I'll be there as a special guest signing my new pattern and gift book, "Earth Blessings."
