Sewtopia: Chicago 2015


Drumrolllll! I am ever so excited to announce that 
I have been invited to teach at Sewtopia in Chicago in 2015!

It's destination USA ~ Chicago 2015 for me! As a family we love to travel and have made several trips to the USA including a short stay in Chicago which as a city we just loved. So when I was asked to teach at this sewing retreat I literally jumped at the chance.

Sewtopia is a weekend where attendees can leave all the stresses of daily life behind to indulge themselves, focus on sewing projects, and get together with friends, old and new. 

WHEN:  16 to 18 April 2015

WHERE: Drake Hotel - Chicago

(See more information regarding registration and an events schedule here). Places are limited.

TEACHERS: Latifah Saafir (The Quilt Engineer) and me! (Latifah is a great inspiration to me and I will be most sorry that I can't also attend Latifah's class!).

It will be my greatest joy to finally meet ~ face to face ~ with other bloggers, quilters and sewists; to spend time together sewing, share knowledge and learn from others. I will be teaching the Kansas Dugout Block and inset seams - a class suitable for all skill levels - and if you're like me and learn quickly in a class setting, then I know you will enjoy this class, and walk away confident to tackle all inset seams, as well as with a completed project.

Good times ahead. Roll on 2015!
