It's Been a Long Time... but I'm Back!


I know I haven't posted to this blog for quite awhile, so I think it time that I get back into the swing of things.

This past weekend I attended the AFIC (Artistic Figures in Cloth) Conference in Columbus,OH where I taught 3 classes on patterning authentic historical costumes for dolls. I must say the experience was fantastic!!! I had the best students that any teacher could wish for. You all know who you are - huggz to all.

I met many wonderful new people there, too. And some new opportunities were presented to me. Aside from inquiries about my teaching at other conferences and doll clubs, and a couple of invitations to exhibit my work fiber arts conventions, I have been asked to write several tutorial CDs. Wow, how exciting!! I am hoping to have the first ones available about mid-summer of this year. They will be available on-line from Dollmakers Journey at dollmakersjourney.com.It's Been a long time... If you are not familiar with Dollmakers Journey, look them up on-line. Maryann and Bonnie are just great. They have a HUGE selection of supplies, patterns books and so much more. Delivery is super fast. And they publish a monthly newsletter that is both informative and entertaining. Simply a great company to deal with.

Well, all that being said, I guess I had better get to work on those new tutorials. Mid-summer will be here before I know it (if it ever stops raining - lol).

Cheers, everyone!
