Quilting into Fall

I have been involved in several new quilting/fabric projects lately.  Met with textile designer Alison Glass talking about designing fabric and Quilt Market, she was most helpful and I hope a new friend in the art community.  Our Peninsula Modern Quilt Guild is planning a quilt show this fall, so have been working with them and looking forward to that event.

Our new school season at RSA start next week and I have many new ideas for my students.  I love the pillows in the photo from the summer sewing club, great job Mary, Amy and Rose.

Summer Sewing Days

alto sewing machine

I have my last sewing class with my younger students tomorrow.  It is so exciting to see new young people being creative and their interest in sewing.  We have great discussions, I think they all relax when their hands are busy and the thoughts and words just flow.  We have talked a lot about sewing machines and how they work, in my research I found this unique machine. I love when design is always a part of function.

The Alto machne is made for non/beginner sewers.  Easy threading, and the speed is controlled by your hands moving on the fabrics-no foot pedal.  This could be great for students.

Classes

It is time for the next session of my Teen Sewing Classes.  We had a great time in June and I want to focus on techniques to make you sewing look more polished, and offer some tricks to keep the frustration away.
