My handstitching class

I promised to show some photos from my handstitching class. It was the last evening on monday and I think we have some new quilters here. Looks like they got addicted to this hobby.

We have been in the local quiltshop all the time. And it's very inspiring to have classes there between all the beautiful bolts of fabrics, quilts, books and patterns. And we have big tables to baste our quilts on.

Sometimes they have to use the most odd positions to get the basting done. Do you see the cat quilt behind on the wall? That's one of my own patterns.
Only three ladies had completed their samplers. And they are beautiful and well handstitched. I am proud of them. During these eight evenings they have learned everything from drawing patterns, making different blocks, applique, basting and handquilting. Now they have to do the rest at home. To handquilt the whole sampler. In august I start a new class if I get enough participants.

Saying for today:
Sometimes a library of words can't say
what a hug from a friend can.

The one thing I miss the most living in South Korea for these two years is being able to go to a quilt class!! I miss the companionship of other ladies in a quilt shop learning something new or ooohing and aaahing over someone else's work. You're a lucky gal!!! Thanks for sharing!!

Hi Mae, it looks and sounds as if your class was 100% sucessful!! And what happy looking new quilters.

I used to teach, but do find it very taxing. Maybe having that great place to teach helps keep you and all of them motivated. Keep up the good work! Hugs, Finn who likes you 'wisdom' for the day..hugs from a friend *VBS*

The samplers are wonderful, looks like a fun class. I like classes just for being around quilters and fabric.
The cat wall hanging is adorable.
