Studio Tour 2011 Cindy Grisdela

The Great Falls Studios Eighth Annual Studio Tour is this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 15-16, from 10 – 5.  Go to to download a map and brochure to plan your free driving tour. Or pick up a brochure at any of the venues.

I’m putting the finishing touches on today! My studio is a small upstairs bedroom with just enough room for my sewing machine, my two cats and me. So I turn the downstairs into a gallery and bring my sewing machine down to demonstrate how I add texture to my work with freeform stitching on my machine–no computer or marking, just hand driven drawing with my needle and thread.

Also, my “30 Quilts” project will be on display–see a few of the pieces in the photo at left. For more information about the project, click on “March 2011” in the Archives on the right hand toolbar.

The rain has stopped and it looks like it will be a nice weekend–I’d love to see you if you have a chance to stop by!
