FEATURE ARTICLE: Installing the Commission


I just want to share that the commission I’ve been working on since Dec. is done!  I’ve been sharing the many steps that it took to make this piece.  I have named it Graceful Ladies.  My client, couldn’t wait to have it in her living room, and we are going to have an unveiling party to celebrate.  I am so grateful to have the opportunity to make this special piece for her.  It is so meaningful for me to do my best work for someone. I also created a photo book that documents the making of the piece, and I share the virtual version here for you:

 The Rock Your  Quilting Retreat, Benson, NC!!!!

 Starring:  Penny Prichard, your host and fabulous chef, owner of the mansion

 And, Roxane Lessa, fiber artist and your mentor/teacher extraordinaire

 And 5 lovely ladies who are coming to re-commit to making gorgeous art quilts, have fun, de-stress, and  enjoy the community of other dedicated quilters.

 I will be shooting some video during the retreat, so stay tuned to see as these gals stretch their skills, break through their limiting beliefs about themselves, and ultimately make rockin’ art quilts!  I can’t wait!


Rock Your Quilting Retreat

Since the retreat is now full, let me know if you are interested in doing this workshop in my studio in the near future.  I will put you on a waiting list.

  1. Roxane-that commission is so cool! I envy the owners. What a gift to them, to include the book about the process. That is so thoughtful and surely must be the type of thing that brings in more commissions!
