Wow!! What A Month!

Wow!!  What A Month!

To say that March was a bit busy for me is an understatement.  I began the month of March with a quick trip to Texas to celebrate my daughters 18th birthday!  Where has that time gone?!  I can hardly believe that she is legally an adult now! 

I had a few days in the shop helping customers and doing some Babylock training before I was off on my next adventure, a trip to Chicago!  Marcia, Tom and I were in Chicago for the Bernina Q Series Training!

For a whole week Tom and I were in a classroom full of Bernina Q24's learning all there is to know about these machines! 

As soon as we made it back from Chicago I was back in our Classroom here at Pine Needles to teach our Quiltworx Technique of the Month, Coral Reef.  This was class number 6 out of 7.  I am anxiously awaiting our next and final class where we can start putting all of the pieces together to make the quilt top! (More pictures to come soon)  

Not only did I learn about the Bernina Q Series during the month of March but I also learned a bit about the Bernina e16, a 16 needle embroidery machine! So if you have questions on the Q Series or maybe you are interested in a multi-needle embroidery machine, stop in and I'd love to show you!

And last but not least, I spent the last week of March in Texas for Quiltworx University!   Every morning started with Judy giving a demonstration on the units to be worked on that day!  If you have not tried paper piecing the Quiltworx way, I highly recommend it!


My list of Quiltworx quilts to-do might have grown just a bit!  

Now, onto April!  I think I will have just a bit of catching up to do, but I am eager to get back in front of my sewing machine to finish up a few projects that I have in the works!


Happy Spring, Happy Sewing!

Oh, golly. I had such big plans.

We've dabbled in a little sewing teaching with my kids, but never really progressed beyond letting them push the pedal while I "drove" and the like.
