I am preparing once again for the event this past spring that had me crazy worried. I spoke at Creativ Festival for the first time in April, and, as it turns out – it’s terrifying the first time, easier the second time and much, much easier this time! #practicemakesbetter

But – it wouldn’t be fun without something new, right?! So I’m teaching a workshop and emceeing a super-fun event on Saturday. Eeep! Though it may sound otherwise, I am really excited for the new opportunities, and (as always), interacting with other creative people is my favorite.

If you are in the Toronto area, I’d love to see you there. The show starts bright-and-early on October 27 (Thursday morning) and runs until Saturday, October 29th at the International Centre. 3 days of exhibits, workshops, demonstrations and booths full of amazing crafting supplies. #petallthefabric!

Join me for my Fat Quarter Skirt Workshop, 9-12 Thursday morning. I’m so excited to teach this beginner-friendly workshop – and maybe addict more of you to the goodness of sewing! 😉 You’ll leave the workshop with a fully finished skirt for your favorite little girl, and a pattern for sizes 2-6 so you can make more of them! Register on the Creativ Festival website – click the “Feature Classes: Thursday…” button and find “Fat Quarter Skirt”. 

I’ll also be presenting a Janome-sponsored talk called “Be Brave and Sew II” on the Fashion Runway Thurs and Fri at 2:30 and Saturday at 1:30. There will be sponsor giveaways and exclusive discounts – plus, lots of information to help you conquer your sewing bucket list! 

I hope to see you there!
