I got to see Sue Hausmann and talk about her trip here in October. Be sure to sign up to come to her presentations October 20th and 21st. She has two new embroidery collections out, for beautiful quilts. You’ll see those and much more. You can sign up here.
We spent some time with Simon Haskins, and you can see Simon and Jenny’s Sharman’s Vintage Garden Quilt behind us in the photo. We saw him a few weeks ago In Pittsburgh at Quilt Market, and we’ll see him again in two weeks in San Francisco at Bernina University where he’s teaching lots of classes. And the poor guy was back home in Australia between his three visits to the US, and he’s not finished yet! Talk about a frequent flyer! He must be putting his time on those trips into creating new designs (just look at these trims!) and projects for Creative Expressions Magazines, because he and his Mum have lots of new things!
Another project used the Viking Yarn Couching Set, and we did a DigiBobbe design with Spangle Yarn. The one I chose was from Collection 4, Bubbles and Pearls, but any of the collections are beautiful. (I have them all!) The tassel is made with Jenny’s Magic Tassel Maker (about 1/4 of the way down the page) and the button that attaches it is a design from Hope Yoder’s Button-Ups Embroidery Collection (about 1/4 down the page), which is so much fun!
I really enjoyed being able to learn new things and use new tools and products. Click on the “What’s New” on the left of almost any of the pages on our site to see new things as they’re added daily!
