I have some exciting teaching events happening this fall!

First up is my popular Artful Improv class at Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria, VA on Saturday, September 29 from 10 AM – 4 PM. Join me to learn how to create original quilts without a pattern using easy improvisational techniques.

3 – 4 PM Lecture – Combining Stitch Patterns in Your Quilts
It’s fun to combine different stitching motifs with free motion–more fun to quilt and more fun to look at when it’s finished. I show you how I do it in this fast paced lecture. Starry Night detail stitching - Cindy Grisdela
And in late October, I’ll be traveling to Minnesota for a wonderful week of teaching with Minnesota Contemporary Quilters and Minnesota Quilters! See the details here.
I hope you’ll be able to join me at one of these events!

    I’ve bought your book and would love to take a class. Unfortunately I can’t make it this fall. Do you have any venues scheduled for 2019 yet? I will make a plan around it! I am always inspired by your new work. I am also a big Cherrywood fan as well as one of yours.
