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!

I don't think I've ever been ready for a trip or event earlier than the night before. I have IDEAS for months, but those ideas don't come to fruition until the looming deadline of "if they don't trick or treat now, they don't trick or treat until next year" or "if you don't leave now, the airplane will leave without you" forces my hand and my sewing machine.
