My journey of re-creating myself

Putting It All Together

My dream in life is to become an Artist. For years I have been sewing, quilting, knitting, teaching and now dyeing fabrics. I’ve been soaking up as many techniques as I could. Now I want to start putting it all together and CREATE! There is so much to learn, and so many things that fascinate me, at times it’s overwhelming. But definitely in a good way!

So this year, my resolution is to start putting it all together. I’m going to track my year’s progress with this blog, including photos and information on techniques that I’ve learned. This blog should help me record my work and also help anyone else who is interested in learning new techniques.

I also teach sewing, quilting, machine embroidery at a local quilt shop. And now I am putting together a new class for Electric Quilt (EQ6). My hopes are also to use this blog to help my students as they participate in these various classes.

I love to learn, but I also love to teach. Art of any kind, needs to be shared! I have found teaching to be such a beneficial endeavor. Not only am I spreading the knowledge I’ve acquired (from so many other generous teachers), I always learn new things from my students. Sometimes the things I learn might be new techniques, but more often the lessons are much more personal and inspiring.

I truly thank all of the many teachers and friends I’ve had, as well as all of my students. Their generosity, inspiration and enthusiasm truly fills my heart and my life!
