I have been anxiously and not very patiently waiting for my class on how to make a blog. The class is this Saturday. As you can see I jumped the gun and started my blog early. I have many questions though and can't wait to learn the answers. I feel fortunate to have found the yahoo group hosted by Shirley Patterson called learningfa, for learning fiber arts. It is kind of a cooperative as people in the group take turns teaching each other skills that we have. I originally signed up because I was interested in the thread painting taught by Shirley, she does amazing work and you will find a link to her blog here on my site. She truly is a wonderful person who has taught me many things in the short time I have been a member of this group. Chris will be teaching our blog class and she has one hundred students! I will periodically post things I have learned to do on this site. Here is a postcard I used my new thread painting skills to create.
Today is a class day for me. I received three classes along with my embellisher so I am going to take one of those. Tonight I have a class called My Bernina Does That! I will learn about a few new feet and what they can do. Sounds like fun. I'm also working on some postcards for a couple of exchanges and a landscape challenge that Shirley gave us to do. I'm hoping to re-create Split Rock Falls in northern Minnesota. I'll keep you posted. Janet
