I'm the Spotlight Artist for The Artful Gathering Blog Hop!

I will be teaching my fabulous premiere video workshop atThe Artful Gathering Online Art Retreat 2012
Crazy Quilting 101

Session One
June 6 to July 17

If you have admired crazy quilts and would love to create your own unique crazy quilt wearable art, join me in creating a Crazy Quilt Swing Purse. This class is for all levels and will start
with a quick and easy piecing method, basic embroidery stitches and silk
ribbon embroidery that anyone can master.
I will discuss embellishments, placement, sources to find unique stash builders and much more. Pattern will be supplied, and a unique coordinated kit filled with everything you will need to complete this project  (kits will be available for purchase)  for those not wanting to invest in bulk supplies to complete one project.
Once you learn a few tips throughout this process, you can apply it to any project your imagination can conjure up. Crazy Quilting isn't just for wall hangings or bed coverings, and it isn't your great grandmother's method. So join me in a crazy adventure but beware, this is quite addictive.
