Craftsy Filming Day!

Craftsy TeamGood Morning, Quilters!

On the top of my planner, there is a little box labeled:  Today’s Focus. For the past several weeks I have filled it in with Craftsy!  I have worked with the talented editors at Craftsy to write an outline, then a script and then tweak and  tweak the script while we added quilts and graphics to highlight each topic.  When we weren’t writing, I was sewing.

Finally, Craftsy! week is here!  I flew in to Denver on Tuesday and yesterday we had rehearsals and shot still photos of the quilts.  It was hard work, but the Craftsy team is both professional and fun!

I know from previous experience that today’s filming will be hard work!  It is hard enough to remember what I’m trying to convey…but to have to be sure to look at the right camera and point slowly so the camera can follow and then not sound like a robot…argh!

One of the tricks from the producers is to think about actually talking to someone-so I will be talking to you, gentle reader!  I will be thinking of you!

CraftsyPlease think of me and send positive quilting vibes my way!

Perhaps you could all take a moment to quilt or doodle….

I’m sure it will help!

May YOUR day be filled with terrifying exciting adventure!

  17. By this evening the shooting has already happened, and you were stupendous and didn’t really need us … except maybe to make that damn butterfly in your stomach lie down or fly away or something. You’re great on camera. I thoroughly enjoyed watching you with sewing guru Nancy Zieman. It’s nice to know what your voice and personality are like. I can now imagine who is writing this great blog. Cheers to you 🍾

  19. I have your Craftsy classes and I can honestly say that I enjoyed them greatly and always felt that you were talking directly to me. You’re a natural!
    Btw, do I detect a Stephen King influence there, “gentle reader”? Keep up the good work
