Almost Sold OUT!

I can't believe it, but it's true.  School of Crafts Camps are completely sold out! And registration has only been live for about 2 weeks! 

Thank you so much for all of the enthusiasm from everyone for making this summer so successful. 
Also I want to thank everyone for being so kind with the news of my growing family.  Your understanding in cutting my number of camps this summer, due to my growing family, is so greatly appreciated.  

To those of you who didn't make my roster but would like to, please email me so that I can put you on the wait list.  I have used it in the past so you just never know what the future brings.  Also please be on the look out for a regular full day schedule with more camp offerings next summer.  I will be hosting camps yet again and I would really love to teach your kid!

Summer 2014

It's winter and it can only mean one thing....
 It's time to think about SUMMER!!! 

It always shocks me how much in advance we have to plan things out, but such is life :)

I have updated my Summer Camp 2014 tab at the top of the page with all sorts of information.  The most important bit is that registration will begin February 3rd! You can register for all my camps with the links (they will go live at 8:30 am on the 3rd) next to each camp description. 

I really hope to see many old students on my roster as well as some fun new ones :)

DC Modern

Today was the August DCMQG meeting at Capital Quilts. 

It's so nice to see and chat with everyone. 

Meli shared a tutorial on paper piecing :)

There were also some really pretty show & tells...

Even some clothing was shared :)

Thanks to everyone who came out. I'm really looking forward to next months meeting.

Final week

It was my last week in Arlington.  It was an interesting week. It started off strong with very eager  knitters and embroideries and then my health took a dive. Actually my son was the one that caught a virus that I then was "lucky" to get as well.
Unfortunately I had to cancel one of the days to get myself back to shape. Despite the day set back there was lots of knitting and lots of cute embroidery going on. Check it out...

Next week I'll be in Falls Church teaching some eager kids machine sewing skills!

Final days

This past week was my final camp week for Summer 2013 and my first at Falls Church. 
I had such a great time I hope to have more weeks at Falls Church in future camps.
Take a look at all the sewing from this week.

I love how enthusiastic kids get when they make their own stuff. I like to think I have planted some sewing seeds and I can't wait to see it grow!!

Happy summer!

Another productive week!

Wow did the time fly this week! Everyone was so busy making fun projects that there were days that I completely forgot to take pictures :( I was able to take a few, though it doesn't reflect the amount of work or finished projects that resulted last week. 

In the morning camp, students learned to sew on sewing machines by competing 4 projects, one of which where these fabric trays.

Then there was free choice and the kiddos had so much fun picking their projects

In the afternoon camp, Open Studio, students picked out their own projects and brought their own fabrics and set to work....

This student picked a fun dress to complete.

This kiddo was mass producing pillow covers for her room (6 total!)

A quilt reflecting her favorite books. Can you guess a few blocks?

4 new curtains for her room. Love those colors!!!

Thank you to all my campers for making this such a fun week. 
I have one more week at Arlington and then I move to Falls Church.
