More Sewing with Nancy!

Good Morning, Quilters!

Last December, as I was browsing lazily through my emails,  I noticed a note from the editor at Martingale.  I leapt out of my chair when I read that Nancy Zieman had expressed interest in Free Motion Machine Quilting, 1-2-3 and if I was available she was extending an invitation to film two episodes in February 2017!

Was I available?????

Are you kidding me????

I would have hired a dog sled to get from Minnesota to Wisconsin in February if necessary!

I have watched Sewing with Nancy forever!  She is a celebrity in my house–all of my kids knew exactly who I was talking about when I sent a group text announcing the news!

Fortunately, while it was bitter cold as we drove to Wisconsin (my daughter, Faye came along)–there was no need for canine escorts.

In addition to working and filming, Nancy and her husband graciously invited us to dinner. It was a lovely evening.  They told us stories about their early years including some very funny stories of the mistakes they made.  The key (in their words) they just went to work every day and they stuck together.

Nancy’s story is one of hard work and perseverance.

Thank you, Nancy!  YOU have been an inspiration to so many of us–as an seamstress, as an artist, as a businesswoman and as a lady!

What about YOU?  Has Nancy inspired you?

We’d LOVE to hear!

A Creative Workshop

The Lab, Minneapolis, Water Colors, Meghan Gonzalez

Good Morning, Quilters!

My daughters recently treated me to a creative evening out.  We all went to A Watercolor Creative Workshop from The Lab, Minneapolis  

The class was taught by Megan Gonzalez of MaeMae & Co.

The class was held in a beautiful space in downtown Minneapolis.We had a great time playing with a few new art supplies.

The three hour class really wasn’t enough time to delve deeply into watercolor painting, but we all left wanting to learn more.

Of course, I had to put my spin on it!!!

Now the wheels are really turning!

What about YOU?

Have YOU ever tried watercolors?

Have YOU tried an exploratory class on anything lately?

Do YOU creatively cross-train?

We’d LOVE to hear!

Happy Watercolor Quilting,

Lori
