Next week, I’m headed on a super-secret quilting trip. . . can’t share details yet, but can later in October.

Since I can’t share details about this trip, I thought I would share some of the newest trips, added to my schedule.  I get emails and comments about where I travel and teach.  Best place to look is here, my travel schedule. I keep it updated and current, so you can see where I’m going.

My 2012-13 schedules are full, however, I’ve added the following new trips in 2014.

March 11-12

Surfside Quilters Guild
San Clemente, California

June 5-7

Quilt Symposium of Alabama
Location to be announced

And(!)  May 1-10
Cruise to Tahiti & Society Islands
Details here:

I’ve got more trips in the works and will put them on the webpage as we confirm the  dates.  If your guild or quilt show would like me to visit your area, I would love to chat with you about open dates!

Please fill out my online contact form here and I would be happy to send your guild more information.

I’ve been creating in EQ8 and LOVE this feature. . . you can see more than one quilt or block at a time in the Sketchbook.  In fact, I can determine how many I can see.  Love this! #EQ8 EQ8 is coming soon!  So excited, so many new features!
