SEW FUN 2014

Are you feeling blah?

Do you have trouble getting to asleep at night thinking about all your unfinished projects?

Is your creative core being neglected?

Do you dream of making things–all KINDS of things?

I know just the solution to your problem.

Three days of stitching in the woods with me. AKA SEW FUN 2014.

Here’s how it works. I set up a sewing class room in the Old Hardware Store in downtown McCarthy, Alaska.

Don’t you feel better just thinking about all the things you could make with a sewing machine? And I will be your helper the entire time. Don’t know how to read a sewing pattern? I will help you. Want to discuss design issues concerning your latest art quilt? I’m there. Need a lecture on color. I’ll give you one. I’ll even rip and iron if you need me to.
