In Workshops & events

This weekend I had the honor of visiting with the members of the Maryland Chapter of the American Sewing Guild. As part of their one-day sewing retreat, they asked if I would come do a little trunk show, chat, and sign books. I gladly accepted their offer!

I brought along all of the projects from my first book, Warm Fuzzies and spread them out on one table. They barely fit! It was great to get them out of the box and let people see and enjoy them.

On another table I spread out all of the projects from my second book, Sewing Green. Not the most alluring presentation, but everyone got to come up close and check out the goods.

I also brought along books, Cup O’ Joe Pincushion kits, my new sewing patterns and samples, etc! I find that grand pianos make the best displays, don’t you? I always keep one handy. :)

After a full day of sewing, I think the ladies were happy to just sit and enjoy listening to me yammer on about felted wool, my love of repurposing second hand materials and behind-the-scenes stories of being on the Martha Stewart Show.

Here I am signing books and posing with Paula and Laura who were both super enthusiastic and helpful.

This is Bobbie, who watched me make my Cup O’ Joe Pincushion on Martha way back in 2007 and has been making them for gifts ever since! I just had to get a photo of us and our pincushions. She is too sweet!

Thanks to the MD chapter of the ASG for inviting me to be a part of your day!
