At the end of this post I have some polymer goodies to sell…………but first!
The big announcement for our Artistic Alchemy 2018 Retreat is coming next week, on February 2nd. We’ll be giving you lots of news and information about this year’s workshops. We are busy now formulating our workshops and planning a very creative and fun time at Zephyr Point, September 3-8. I will be teaching my Material Matrix technique.
I started my year off with a wonderful time with the Pajaro Quilt Guild in Capitola, CA. A 2-day class teaching “Junior Cardinal” for the first time, and I couldn’t’ve asked for a better group of enthusiastic quilters.
The Capitola area is really wonderful, I love being near the ocean no matter the time of year. I had wonderful hostesses and a great time was had by all. If you are ever there, do not miss Gayle’s Bakery, no matter what. I was fortunate enough to eat there twice during this trip. It is a feast for the eyes as well as stomach!
I wanted to sneak a photo in the blog here….I made my son Matteo a quilt for Christmas and he finally got it in January. He is a bike enthusiast which is reflected in the quilt. He doesn’t live here anymore so it warms his Mama’s heart to know he’s wrapped in it. I make simple quilts too, on occasion.
I went to “Demo Day” at NCQC, where I did a 12-minute demo on my new “Stitching Words” class (6 times, no less)…it was well-received and I hope to have many guilds sign me up for future workshops. If any of you reading this are possibly interested, please contact me 🙂
OK, now for the sale items!
Each item is numbered, refer to the number to let me know what you want (ie: board 1-earrings #3, board 2-pin#5, etc). The prices are in the photos are on the buttons and pins. The earrings are $22 for one pair, $40 for 2, and $55 for 3. The earrings are made with steel posts and wire and are not sterling.
Here’s how you can buy something: email me personally, at firstname.lastname@example.org, not through our AA blog. Let me know what you want and I’ll add sales tax (8%) and S&H and email you back the total. I’ll send you a Request for Money through Pay Pal. You don’t need a Pay Pal account to do this transaction. Once you pay, I will send it. Or, if you would rather, send me a check. The first person to email me that they want an item will get it.
Everyone’s computer sees color differently. So keep that in mind. If you purchase something from me and don’t like it, I will take it back within 10 days of shipping it originally. I will refund your money after I receive the item back. I will not be able to refund any shipping charges. I know the pictures are not perfect, if you can’t read a price, or want to see something up close, let me know, and I’ll send you a better picture. The buttons have a quarter laying there to give you scale.
I had fun picking out goodies to sell. I’ll be making a very big new batch in the next couple of weeks, so it feels good to “spring clean” even if it is still definitely winter around here. All the buttons are machine washable, no dry cleaning please. There are flat buttons, and my ever popular chunky ones, which are good for bags, vest openings and anything else you can think of. The pins are all approximately 2 inches wide. See you next Friday on our blog!!
