  1. Your Plano TX event is listed under 2014, but says 2015. Can you clarify? Either way, I'll be there!

  2. It's 2014, Deborah! Thanks for the catch. Going in the post now to correct it. Will love to see you there!

  3. Please (!) post this again in 2014! I would love to take the one in Henderson, NV. When I was going through the list I was thinking "No one ever comes to Las Vegas" so I was excited to see it!

  4. How can I sign up for the Once in a Blue Moon Fiber Art Retreat? I was lucky enough to take classes from you and Lyric through Quilters by the Sea in Wilmington, NC and want more.

    1. Thanks, Becky! I'll keep your name on my list, and let you know as soon as we have a venue! We are not taking registrations yet.

  5. I am sure you are asked this question a lot--did you dye the pink shirt that you are wearing in the side bar photo? It is wonderful and you look great in it!


I love it when you leave comments… Otherwise I feel like I'm just talking to myself! If you have time to write, please let me know what you think.
