Quilting ByThe Lake

July 21 - July 25
Quilting by the Lake in Morrisville, NY. It was a great class. I unfortunately was sick the first 3 days with some stomach virus. I was rooming with Elin Nobel and Emily Richardson and they took very good care of me. Bob was rooming with Bill Kerr. At least the dorms were air conditioned. By Tuesday I was back to normal (as normal as I can get) and I took some pictures around the campus. The pictures I am including are from the class that is now called "Color, Texture, Line and Shape through Free-Motion Sewing." It's a great class for loosening up your approach to stitching. I think they all enjoyed the class and learned a lot from it.

Later this week I will post some pictures from the workshop Bob did for Committed to Cloth in England. I am still suffering from jet lag. We got home at 11:oo PM last night. I am a little off today. The pictures from QBL are not in the positions I wanted them in but I don't have the energy to figure out how to move them around.

Workshops I : What's coming...

This blog business is not as easy as I thought. It is a lot of responsibility. I posted the first with such good intentions and then life came at me. I do have a full time job that I have to work at in order to keep Bob in thread, needles, and material. Bob has done 3 workshops recently and that is what I am going to talk about and include pictures of...when we return to the states. Right now I am blogging from Bovey Cottage in Betchworth, UK. When we return and I have downloaded the pictures I will tell you all about the workshops. Our time in England has been wonderful. You couldn't ask for better hosts than Claire and James Benn. Claire Benn and Leslie Morgan are "Committed to Cloth" and are a very talented, giving duo. They just collaborated with Jane Dunnewold on a book called "Finding Your Own Visual Language." Check out their web site:

Well that is all for today. This is our last day in the UK and I will be sad to leave. Bob is ready to get back and start working again. As much as he likes doing workshops, they do take him away from the studio.
