Oh my, did I have a great time at this recent annual event which is held at St Peter’s College, Muenster, SK OR WHAT?!  It runs for 10 days and is a hive of activity of ALL sorts of sewing, quilting & knitting related topics.

I taught classes on the following topics:

1. Are you using everything your sewing machine has to offer?  Janome26-62

2. Fun with Embroidery: making 5 all-in-the-hoop projects.

We also had “Meet the teacher” presentations most evenings. When it was my turn, I did SHOW & TELL with some quilts as well as garments I have made recently – for inspiration and to show various techniques. I also demo’ed the fabulous JANOME QUILT BINDER SET. which is fully compatible with many of our ELNA sewing & quilting machines as well.
