I believe in taking classes, when they interest you or teach you a new skill. I’m headed to the Long Beach International Quilt Festival (or LB-QuiltCon, as I like to call it) and I’m taking three classes: two from Karen Stone and one from Kaari Meng, of French General. Here are snapshots of the projects:
I discovered today that there is a Preview Night on Thursday night, where we get access to the quilt displays, vendors plus they have a Take-It-Make-It sort of set up of learning new skills. I finally got organized this afternoon, printing out class supply lists, which led me to notice one curious thing. I need no fabrics for the Stone classes, but did have to pay for a kit. And they’ll have sewing machines for us to use (and charge us for, of course). When I went to Houston a few years ago, I dragged a roller suitcase full of fabric with me to each of the classes I took. What a change.
What a very nice change. (I may sneak some of my fabrics in anyway.)

Feeling rather envious right now. Maybe next year I can come along??
Love the old favorites,new ways class. That should be really fun to learn. You’ll have to let us know how that goes. Understand that quilt show is a good one and I wish I were closer as I’d love to go myself.
