Teaching, Learning, and Show & Tell

What a BUSY week.  Oh my.  I taught two classes, and I took two classes!  The 2 postcards workshops were great.  I always enjoy offering them.  I got a couple photos from Judy, the owner of the Studio on Ninth.  They are from the second class (the day I forgot my camera).

hey look, it's me!  Thanks Judy : )

aren't they pretty!!??  : )  Click to see them bigger...

Then, this afternoon, I attended the second of a four part Wonderfil thread course called "Luscious Threads".  There was a project today with really, REALLY thin thread that I quite enjoyed.  I did a lot of free motion work, raw edge applique, and even did my first-ever trapunto!  I thought that was pretty cool.  It was a non-traditional method where you don't have to slice the backing fabric.  I still can't get over how thin that thread was - Decobob & Invisifil.  It was like hair.  Seriously.

you can barely see the thread!
pretty, though I should not have outlined the Trapunto with beige thread.  Just a sampler...

Last, but not least, I attended the final night of my USCAD class.  This was made possible by a scholarship from the Saskatoon Quilters' Guild.  It was thirteen 3-hour evenings of "Experimental Fibre Art II".   The purpose of the class was collaboration.  I started two pieces and passed them on to other classmates to complete, and I finished one piece that someone else started.  There is also the wrapping piece, and one last one I collaborated on with Jill Cope (also a member of our quilt guild).  I will absolutely post photos, but not until after our class exhibit!  : )  I love love love what I made.

I had no idea, but our Instructor Anahit has booked a space at the University this Thursday night if you would like to come see!  6-8pm would be great, and it's free.  I'm pretty proud of my work!  It's very... experimental.  : )  We will be there earlier to set up and check out the space for the first time.  Here is the poster Anahit made to announce the event!

I won't be there until shortly after 5, but will stay until 8 when we take our art home.  Most of us feel that the one who finished the art will keep the piece... I think?  hmmm.  I hope to see some friendly faces there!

I don’t even know the way I finished up right here, however I assumed this publish was great. I do not realize who you are but definitely you are going to a well-known blogger in case you are not already. Cheers!

Uhh... to Keira - Monika is a well known blogger! lol

Anyway nice to "see" you, and your class's work looks great. Looking forward to seeing what you made - looked at the poster and I can't figure it out. lol

Congrats on the success of your classes -- taught and studied. :-) I am intrigued by the title of that show, "Experimental Fiber Art". As a Canadian show, the publicity person should know how to spell 'fiber' correctly ('fibre)...but even more interesting was that first word in the title. Where I live in Central Alberta, all fibre art is "experimental"! :-)
