Guest Artist: No Fear of Stitching

Judy R's quilt made in my Garden of Eden class
 My friend Judy attended 2 of my classes at the Knoxville show and to her surprise  did some hand stitching!
Judy R's quilt from my Stitch After Fusing class
Judy declared early on in the Stitch After Fusing Class that she hadn't done any hand stitchery for a long long time and wasn't sure if it was for her. As you can see, she was wrong.

Judy declares she is now "hooked!" Hand embroidery is for everyone! Didn't she do a wonderful job?

Thanks Judy for taking the class and for taking a chance on the old fashioned needle and thread method of embellishing art quilts. If you'd like to join Judy in her liberated state please attend one of my classes. We'll have fun!

Wonderful! More hand stitchers are always a good thing :)

Laura - Your creative mind must be churning all the time. I just love what you do. I wish I had been more aware when you came to my guild and taught us to fuse and stitch. I hope I can take one of your classes again. Carolyn in Kerrville, TX
