Look who is peeking in through the window of the studio!
Watching the busy squirrel is contagious… I am in the process of checking and updating my calendar for 2013 and 2014. I realize it will be another full year with a strong focus on teaching. The design workshop is now underway and I can direct my attention to February.
I am teaching close to home, the Moose Jaw quilt guild has reserved February 9th and 10th for my embellishment workshop “Elements That Please”. The workshop is confirmed and I understand it is open to non-guild members. If you live close to Moose Jaw, this may be of interest to you. Details on who to contact for more info or to register can be found here.
My decision from last year didn’t carry over: I have several bookings each month for workshops, lectures and Art Quilt Campus. Speaking of Art Quilt Campus 2013: The past weekend brought two more registrations resulting in only one spot remaining. Who would have expected this?… If you think you might be interested in the last spot check out details on the November 22nd, 2012 blog post describing the venue. The registration form and workshop outline can be downloaded from that page as well.
Last week brought two unexpected invitations: I am invited to judge and teach at the Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara, California in October, shortly after I return from a week of teaching in Italy and prior to lecturing in Saskatoon and Edmonton. So much to do – so little time…
Updating the calendar on my website made me realize that I am fully booked for this year. I made a decision to take July off so I can spend time at home – this will be the first July at the lake years.
What about exhibiting? I hear your questions now! Over the past years I have had one or two solo exhibitions each year. I have made the decision to take 2013 off from exhibiting. I will submit to a few calls for entries with existing work as long as it fits the perimeters of the individual shows, but my focus is on “filling the well” and experimentation in the studio when I am home and in the studio.
My year is set – there will be few idle moments. I will keep you posted on changes and updates!
