This weekend I joined the Northern Illinois Longarm Guild. The group meets every other month just south of Chicago, Wheaton, Illinois. Hour and half trip for me, but worth the trip. The group brings in a Master educator for hands on or lecture for learning techniques. June 23rd the guest speaker and teacher will be Sharon Schamber ...... My Hero!!!! Master of quilting!!! Love, Love, Love her work. Of course I will be there front row and center picking her brain on quilt designing. They just might kick me out just to shut me up ......lol I would love to have a week with her just to eat and sleep quilts. Hummmmm ...... maybe I should just invite her over, I would do the cooking....lol
http://www.heartofquilting.com/ was guest speaker yesterday. The topic was on threads and maintenance of the longarm. Very interesting, I learned a few things about machines that I didn't know..... Helped her out with quilting supply orders at the end of the meeting. Nice way to purchase thread and parts for the longarm with out paying for shipping. That is a big plus for the group.
Kathy announced that I would be teaching a class on whole cloth, man you cannot believe how fast my head swung around..... like what???? She had them fill out a sheet if interested, couldn't believe the response, so I guess I will be teaching a class. This should be fun, just need to set a date. More on that later.
