Only a week ago today I finished my Art Quilt 101 workshop with enthusiastic members of the Kluane Quilters Guild. Thanks to Maria, Dahn, Holly, Joanne, Wendy, Maggie, Diane, Karen, Dorothy and Judy for three days filled with individual growth, great questions and steady interest in finding out more about techniques and materials. I had a blast with all of you!
Sunday and Monday were a little more quiet with the Kantha Workshop. I think this was the very first time where participants brought definite ideas and suitable fabrics to be used for their main projects. How exciting to see so much thought put into the preparation for the class by each participant! Thank you Shelagh, Karen, Dahn, Maria, Cathy, Judy, Janet and Susan for bringing such enthusiasm and interest in this historical technique to the workshop.
And yes…. Every night I was hopeful to capture the Northern Lights dancing. I packed my big camera after all. One evening I noticed stars for the first time (most of the week we had heavy cloud cover which helped keep the temperatures pleasant) and decided to stay up till close to midnight. I made my way quietly to the back deck without waking up my hosts. However, all I captured was the city lights reflecting off the clouds. I tried – It leaves me with the resolve to return to Whitehorse… I can’t wait to go back!
