|Me with a few of my pinballs|
I made limited edition kits just for them!
I've already heard from a few who are planning their next pinballs - how fun! They have some wonderful embellishment ideas to further personalize their projects.
It was a fun evening!
|How many bunnies can you count?|
Deanna sent me this photo of her pinball as well as a little walk down memory lane. She pinned her ball with white glass headed pins.
The Hex box was a gift a few years back from another member of our sewing group. The clam or pinch purse I made her along with the walnut pin cushion the same year.
Maybe 5 years ago?? Fun we know her so well to use the same In The Beginning Toile. When she was here we checked the selvedge - the year was 2002.
Her little pink bear is named "Carrie".
What a precious and sentimental collection!
Maybe next she will share her berries?!?
Saturday, I was the guest speaker at the Saint Paul Needleworkers Guild Spring Luncheon. HERE
The luncheon tables were each set with a different spring color and matching floral arrangement - Beautiful!
I was able to setup two full tables of handwork related embroidery and sewing items. At the end of the table I had my book and an area to sign copies.
They are a wonderful group of enthusiastic and talented stitchers.
On Thursday I will be doing a program for the Saint Cloud Heritage Quilters. HERE
I'll be bringing antique fabrics, quilts and antique quilt related needlework tools. Guests can attend for $3.
Lots or repacking and regrouping going on! Great Fun!
I can customize a program for any interested group - contact me or have your program manager contact me directly.
I try not to duplicate to much so people who attend multiple events always have a surprise!
Then I am off to Pennsylvania, where I am speaking at the Penn Dry Goods market. HERE
Their exhibit is antique sewing tools from the museum an private collections.
My lecture is sold out and they are taking names for a wait list. There are so many great speakers I can hardly wait! From quilts, plushwork and silk - Two full days. Plus, the shopping - I aways find a treasure or three to bring home.
If you can't make it to an event, signed copies of my book are available directly from me - I'm happy to provide free gift wrap on mail orders. HERE
