So let's rewind two weeks ago, back to MQX. It was a blast (as always), my students were awesome, and I had a bunch of fun!
Let's start out with... S N O W
No, it's not something we see in Florida, but remember, I'm a Jersey girl and I really do miss snow!
A peek of me with my Prince Challenge!
I awarded my Faculty Ribbon to this awesome quilt - Big ASS(terisk) by Becky Everett - such a cool piece!
And a pic with Gods Eye and yes, Trippy was there, but I didn't get a picture with it?? - must be show brain...
And then on Friday night, Kyra Reps was using a bunch of us as guinea pigs to test out her dot painted mandalas - so we (the Gammill crew) all participated! What fun it was!!
Oh! I almost forgot... I had new headshots done by the uber talented Bonnie McCaffery - here's my sneak peek! I can't wait to see the others! New headshots were kinda a must as my grey has really grown in nicely.
So right before takedown, I had a few minutes to stitch... fun stuff!
And of course... takedown - I have the best work family!
So from MQX it was a direct (haha...delay, delay, cancel, new flight) shot out to the Mothership (aka Gammill headquarters) in West Plains. It was our dry run of the new Quilting with Confidence 2019 Tour - and from West Plains, we headed up to the Satellite Mothership (aka Statler) - and also to the hatchery (Warehouse). Keep reading to learn more about the tour, I promise, it's coming. So some of these pics are mine and some are from others... and no, I can't possibly remember who I've borrowed them from, but thanks! So... in no particular order:
So... the tour - Quilting with Confidence! I know I've talked about this recently, but here it is again - you know because not everyone sees every single thing. Let me start with...
I am crazy excited about the tour!
I am honored to be a part of this amazing educational team!
No, this tour is not a sales pitch - we have been working our tushies off creating educational content to make YOU a more confident quilter - whether hand guide or computerized, or both!
The tour will be traveling to 50+ cities worldwide! The classes, schedules, descriptions, and location information can be found here. But wait... there's more... you don't have to be a Gammill user, owning a Gammill is NOT a requirement. The only requirement is the desire to learn and gain confidence!
So... here's the really important part - registration is open for almost half of the cities, and new ones are opening every few days. Go, check it out, see if there is a city near you and sign up!! Next week is the kick-off event in Kansas City -- I can't wait! Hope to see you at an event soon!
