I come!

Why yes.... I am in Iowa for a trade show.  It is a good opportunity to work in my industry while I work also on my business of designing sewing patterns!!
I have learned that it is a ton of fun to see these shows and to meet alot of cool people that dig sewing as much as I do!!

So I have a lot of stuff happening this month... week I am in Toronto at my first International gig @
Creativ Festival.  I am doing this  with Wonderfil Specialty Threads, and do they have great stuff to sew with!!
How lucky am I to use my patterns and show how important that thread is to a project.  I met Andrew and Fiona the owners of Wonderfil Thread at the International Quilt Festival 2 years ago.  I have had the chance to work with many of the specialty threads that Wonderfil has...and every time I get to play with them, I love them even more.
Andrew is bringing me to Toronto and Creativ Festival so that I could have the chance at International Exposure while formally introducing my patterns to Canada!!
What nice people!!  Please come and see these lovely threads at Wonderfil's booth @ Creativ Feastival in Toronto, Canada october12, 13, 14.  And I will have a nice selection of my patterns to choose from!!

These are the classes that I have to offer......
