Quilt Retreat

This November is our annual retreat for the Uncommon Threads Quilt Guild here in Germantown, TN. This year our guest instructor is Sharon Schamber. You can see some of her gorgeous work here.  If you’d like to watch some of her tutorials  you can find them on Youtube here. I’m looking forward to taking a machine embroidery class from her. I’ll let you know if I learn anything. 🙂

I just watched Sharon’s Youtube video on piece-lique. Have you ever done any? When you have a few minutes, it’s very interesting how she glues her pieces together to perfection and then sews them together. I must try it soon.

I’m also taking a class on how to make a Mandala Quilt taught by one of our own, Charmaine. Aren’t these stunning?!!

I can’t wait to make one. Charmaine says they are easy–you just have to learn how to use the special ruler. I’ll keep you posted on that, too.


About ladybelle

I'm a wife, mother and grandmother and I love to make things, especially sock monkeys. They're great for all kinds of gifts, birthdays, baby showers, etc. Kids love them and so do adults!! I've made many football players, including Peyton Manning, Tony Romo and Tom Brady, and character monkeys like Rainbow Brite and the Grinch. Look at some of my favorites and email me with your requests at ladybelle1234@yahoo.com
