Yes, I've started back to work as a statistician and have to cut back a bit on my artistic endeavors but I'm not letting work take over everything. I'm working hard to find a balance as I'm sure many of you have had to do over the years between family, work and your art.
I wanted to let you know that I'll be teaching a few classes very soon.
The first is Needle Felting Basics, May 16 at a fabulous yarn shop in Woodstock called The Whole Nine Yarns. It is a Saturday, 10:30, $35.00. Just a few weeks away! I'll teach you the basics and in the class we'll make a set of coasters and a small case (ipod, cell phone, eyeglasses, whatever you wish it to be for).
The other class is Saturday, June 20th at Intown Quilters, a wonderful quilt shop in the Decatur area. Never been? Oh, you must! I am very excited about this class. It is called Mixed Media Fabric Collage. We will cover as much as possible in one day! We will especially focus on transfer techniques! It is a full day class. I have to check on the times and price.
Other things happening this month are the opening for two exhibits that I have pieces in. One being Focus on Fiber II-Small Art Quilts and the other is local, the member show for the GA SDA (Surface Design Association). It is opening this Sunday at the Defoor Center. I just dropped off my pieces and saw some of the other work and it is simply stunning. Especially unique. The name of the show is Extreme Threads and it "showcases the energy and innovation of diverse professional and emerging artists working in fiber, stitch, surface, textiles.....employing unusual materials, and using timeless and radical techniques."
