was wonderful, I’m so glad I went. Only a few pictures, too busy to get many. The class I took was so absorbing and fascinating I even forgot to eat the chocolates I took.
This is more along the lines of what I am trying to make.
And so far this is what I have done.
The class did what I wanted and much more. I was just looking to learn how to foundation piece with freezer paper. The teacher, Gail Garber, showed us how to design our projects rather than just copy hers. The whole first day we didn`t even touch the sewing machines.
Which were lovely, new Janome`s. A real treat. I was so early the first day I managed to snag a table with only one machine, thinking it would be helpful to have the room. It was but on the other hand, wasn`t very sociable and meant I didn`t get to know my classmates as much as if we had been elbow to elbow for two days.
And best of all, I got to thank Matt Sparrow, the longarm quilter who quilted the tops I sent for the Calgary Flood Relief last year. He was here with the APQS booth. It was almost like a celebrity sighting. The first time through the mall, I was so surprised to see him. I had to go back three times before he was free to approach, it was such a busy booth.
Definitely putting going to Quilt Canada on my list of things to do again.
