Workshop Show & Tell

A fun weekend!

Under the sea…Mermaid Workshop
February 7 & 8, 2009

The whole class

a great weekend….What a fun group of ladies!  Recently I had the
opportunity to teach my Mermaid workshop at Piecemakers Country Store
in Costa Mesa, California.  We had a blast – five ladies (myself
included) created, laughed, shared our thoughts, and expressed our many
opinions about the mermaid's feminine qualities!

Susan's pretty fabric selections!

enjoyed sharing fabrics, sharing tips, melting fabrics, inhaling smoke
(we had a little unplanned fabric melting) – well….we didn't really
enjoy inhaling smoke.  That was a little excitement we could have done
without – geez!  But it was educational!

great big thank you Leslie, Susan, Marilyn, Marsha, and all the gals at
Piecemakers for a wonderful WEEKEND!  You are awesome!!!!!


you haven't been to Piecemakers….you should definately plan a visit. 
Piecemakers Country Store is a FANTASTIC quilt shop in Costa Mesa,
California.   They have so many wonderful fabrics, notions, supplies,
classes, and more.  It really is a wonderful place to shop, take a
class, and even have lunch. They have a wonderful kitchen, and fix the
most delicious foods.   You should definately stop by to visit, be sure
to go upstairs and say hello to Joanna & Nevenka in the class
sample room.

Susan's Jubilee Doll

Susan brought two of her dolls that she made in my previous workshops
at Piecemakers.  "Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet" and "Jubilee".  They
are wonderful!  Fantastic job Susan!

also brought her Jubilee doll to share.  She is soooo pretty!  I really
want to post her picture, but I missed my photo-op.  I'll try to get my hands on a picture to share!

  1. I would surely love to come and take one of your doll workshops, but just don’t think I can “swing it” for April. However, I have written a little post on my blog this morning about it in case some of my blog friends can come.
    Hope to meet you one day soon! Artfully, Sherry

  2. Hi there, all the way from “the land of oz” (Australia i.e.) Just absolutely LOVE your gorgeous dolls; I was so pleased to see your new webist; it’s so inspiring; any chane that you may come ‘down under’ one day; I’d bet heaps of our doll clubs would love to have you come and teach some of your dolls; I have your under the sea mermaid pattern, and would love to buy more patterns if/when they are available.
    Hope to get to meet you one day; best wishes from Australia!
