As y’all know – I work a couple days at the fancy fabulous Waechter’s Fine Fabrics. What you might not know is that very soon I’ll be leading a great expedition into uncharted sewing territory, actually it’s just an informal sewing class/ studio/ community led get-together of the fancy fiber arts.
We’ll be sewing, and sharing ideas and learning things together.
We’re calling it the Next Generation Sewing Studio, but what I mean is, if you’re around 18-40ish and you want to sew, learn some things, share some things and foster a community of exchange and help – then come on by. It’ll be on a couple of Saturday mornings a month at the grand ole Waechter’s store. 10am until 12.
This Saturday marks our first gathering – a wee meet and greet from 10 till 1pm. I’d love to see you – and hear what you’re interested in and what worries you about sewing.
This class isn’t for formally trained sewists who really want to perfect their fill in the blank. Nope – this is an informal help-along.
Let’s get inspired! November 12th from 10-1pm Waechter’s Fine Fabrics 9 D Reed St.
And this (almost Friday) I’m grateful for the chance to meet and help others. I’ve had a whole passel of outrageously helpful women teach me, laugh with me and inspire me along the way.

You know when you’re not ready to hear it till you hear it? I’ve had one of those, staring-me-in-the-face moments this week.
And I’m grateful for the patience of my buddies who have been droning on at me with the same idea that it’s taken me an eon to come to.
Thankful for your persistence and support (& not showing me your exasperated face when I call you all: “I’ve had the best idea ever!”).
Sometimes change comes all at once with a loud trumpet and hurts-your-eyes shine, and some change comes like a vacuum sucking all wind from all sails. And this time change came to me like a sly old friend saying, I’ve been waiting for you to come along. Now push up your sleeves, it’s going to be a ride.
Grateful for the burst of energy and new dreams and new plans that accompany our old friend change.
Grateful for fog and crisp days and long celebrations and taking a minute to look about and really soak into life.
Speaking of myth – the old myth master – John William Waterhouse’s Miranda -the tempest:
Oh such drama. Thankful for dramatic paintings too. And coming out on the other side of a storm.

Such goodness is in the works – and I can’t tell you about it yet – I just can’t. In the meantime, I need a desk – what about this one?
It’s a million but you’d never need another – man oh man… by restoration hardware.
