QA TV Series 2000, including me, is now on air!

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

Hi everyone…a quick pop-in to share that Quilting Arts TV has begun airing.   Check with your local PBS station to find out when it will air in your area.  In Maine, it will be on Maine Public’s Create channel (I think).  If you’re like me and don’t have access to a PBS station (grumble) that airs it, you can download the episodes or series at Interweave, here.  I’ve even got a new badge:

Sarah’s on Quilting Arts TV again, Episodes 2001, 2007 and 2012.

 

I’ll be talking about my journey from hobbyist to professional in the industry (Episode 2001), how to get crisp corners when facing art quilts (Episode 2007), and  my way of using thermofax screens to blend collaged fabrics prior to quilting (Episode 2012).  I hope you’ll enjoy the journey with me–nothing of mine is earth shattering, but not much in life is.  It’s the little tweaks and changes that make the difference, and I hope my tips and techniques will improve your quilting and life.

DVD sale and checking in

Saturday, June 6th, 2015

Well, it would appear I can make quilts or I can blog, but apparently I can no longer do both at the same time!  Sorry to have been away for so long!   Anyway, first some good news–if anyone is interested in my DVD, Interweave is having a HUGE sale this weekend, including my DVD:

Learn my collage process from photo to finished in my comprehensive video workshop.  AND it's on sale this weekend!

It’s an AWESOME storewide “friends and family” sale this weekend . If customers enter the code “FFSUMMER40” they receive 40% off their entire purchase, including your DVD. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Here’s the link : http://www.interweavestore.com/dvd-fused-clg-free-motion-thread

Please share and BTW: other products are also included in this sale!

During my absence, I’ve made a 40×40 quilt that I LOVE, but cannot share until jurying is over (mid July).  I’ve also nearly finished a 21×28 quilt using photo printed on fabric and digitally created companion fabric–as soon as that is done I can share it.   Then I’ve got another top in similar style done, about 25 x 38 but will likely be cropped down when quilted.   AND I’m teaching and judging at Vermont Quilt Festival.   I’d love to have you in my classes–Birch Pond Seasons on Saturday and Inside-Out Bag on Sunday!   Go here if you are interested.

I’m hoping to get some blogposts with pictures up before I head to Vermont in two weeks but am crazy busy….see you soon–I hope!
