FMQ in PDX

Am I too into free-motion quilting? Possibly. I made these stickers and I think I'm going to put one of them on my car. My husband should love that.


Marital bliss aside, if you live in Portland, I dearly hope to see your shining face this week. There's two ways we could make that happen.

First, I'm the guest speaker at this Thursday's PMQG meeting. This is such an honor. I get so excited when I get to teach something that I feel really passionate about. It's the best feeling. Thank you PMQG!

Second, book release free-motion quilting event! We're going to have a little party at Modern Domestic. Would you like to try your hand at free motion quilting for a few minutes? Would you like to see me do free motion quilting for a few minutes? Would you like some advice on finishing a quilt top you're stuck on? Or maybe you just want to watch me squirm when someone asks me to sign my book because I still feel on some deep level that one must not write in books? All these things can be yours at Modern Domestic, Friday 9/20, 6-8pm.  Seriously, come lay down some thread with me. Is that a saying? Let's make it a saying. Lay down some thread. You don't have to do any stitching of course, but if you want to, you totally should.


We'll have some copies of the book at both events, so if you like to buy local, you're covered! I'll even give you one of my FMQ stickers if you want one. Have a great weekend all!

You might be a tad obsessed.....in a good way. Not that I know anything about quilt related obsessions. By the way, your post cards arrived, thanks so much. I'll be sure to share them at my workshop.

I so wish I lived in PDX! Have a great time this week.

The author's autograph is VERY different than "writing in books" - it adds to the collectability (is that a word?) and to the worth of the book especially a first edition.
Wish I was there to enjoy the party.

Can't wait to have you sign my book ~ looking forward to your talk too. Oh, and love the sticker!

What Comes Next? said...

Too into FMQ? I certainly don't think that is possible! Sounds like a fun and busy week - wish I was in the area to come visit.

Yep! I wish you had signed my copy, but I mounted your note inside the front cover so I'd have it forever. And that sticker is just too cool!!! Good luck and enjoy the experience of having people ask for your autograph!! I wish I lived close enough to come....
