Really Big News

River Eddies

Hi Everyone! A big welcome to all the new readers!

You might remember last week, I told you I had some REALLY BIG NEWS, unless you are like me and have no memory whatsoever.  I had to wait until it was really official to spill the beans.

So here it is.  No more teasing, I promise.

I made a plane reservation….

And a hotel reservation…..

To Solon, Ohio for the filming of 2 segments of Quilting Arts TV Series 1500!!!

When I found out, I just about busted a gut with excitement.

I’m going to be demoing my 2 3-D techniques, and you guys are the first to find out.  I’m not exactly sure when it will air, but I will let you know.

Naturally, I’ve been super busy preparing the samples, etc.  And I don’t think I have anything to wear on set that will be right for the cameras.  It seems that black, white or red are no-no’s, and that is more than half my wardrobe.  So, a little clothes shopping might be in order too.

So this is exciting news, right?  But, I need to acknowledge that I had plenty of help with this.  Especially my coaches and my friends who recommended me to Susan Brubaker-Knapp, the new host.  And, as I celebrate, I need to remind myself that it all started with my intention and goal earlier this year.  So, don’t be afraid to dream big dreams, and set big goals.  Then make sure to bust it up into doable bite size pieces!

As always, a big thanks for reading!

If you have been meaning to, don’t forget to sign up for the

Master Art Quilters Guild 

So Early Bird Pricing ended last Friday, but there’s still a few spaces open.  You can still get in……

Did You Know? That I am on Pinterest?  Did you know that there are many amazing art quilts and traditional quilts being pinned every day, just waiting for you to look at? Never before has so much inspiration been in one place.  It’s like having an art museum in your hands.  If you haven’t checked it out, there are many, many types of things being pinned.

CUSTOM COMMISSIONS And don’t forget, I make custom commissions too! Read what my client Glenda had to say about her custom commission experience: “Normally, I would be anxious about commissioning someone to do a work of art such as this. However, I felt a connection to you when Leigh showed me your work. It resonated with me and when I met you, you seemed almost a personification of your work. I immediately felt comfortable with you and knew that what you would create would be stunning. And it is!” About Roxane Roxane-Web-Images-007 Roxane is a full time studio textile artist and teacher with two girls and 1 fat cat.
