Spring will soon be on its way and all the snowbirds will be flocking back home to Canada. I hope you’ve had an opportunity to spend time on your quilting projects, no matter where you’re spending winter.
I am loving the sunshine where I am and thoroughly enjoying the process of teaching my sister to quilt. Teaching someone to quilt brings with it the added bonus of honing your own skills. I find I’m drawing on all the little tips and tricks I’ve learned along my quilting journey. Basically it feels like spreading the love of quilting. Thank you to all of you who patiently teach your skills to others.
I hope the weather has cooperated enough for you to attend one of the Sew Days. They are like a mini retreat and really a wonderful way to focus on quilting for a few hours while you get to enjoy the friendship of fellow quilters. Personally I love getting coaching from others, seeing their favourite tools and what they’re working on. It’s always a great day!
I look forward to seeing you all soon!
