Come see me in Houston at International Quilt Festival




If you are coming to International Quilt Festival in Houston, please come and see me at one of my Open Studios sessions. I’ll be there from noon to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 31 (my birthday!) and from 2 to 4 p.m Saturday, Nov. 2.

Some of today’s top quilters and fiber artists will be working and explaining their techniques at Open Studios, sponsored by Craftsy. Four artists will be working simultaneously under the categories of “Quilt,” “Stitch,” “Embellish,” and “Paint.” This specially constructed area is located on “Main Street,” near the food court.

The schedule is subject to change, but I guarantee you’ll find something fascinating going on!
