It's time for a change.

It's time to gather the loose threads of my life and pull them together into one beautiful fabric!

After 2 plus years of close association with WonderFil Specialty Threads and the WonderFil Threaducation Centre, I am taking the leap and going off on my own! I have loved my time at the WTC.  I have found that I want to do more quilting (for myself and customers) and more teaching and much more travelling.

So, I have moved my Handi Quilter Longarm quilting machine home and set up a classroom/studio in the lower level.  I will soon be scheduling some teaching activities as well as spending more time in front of  'AVA', my Handi Quilter Avante.  I have a lot of projects that I want to quilt for myself as well as take the time to quilt more quilts for customers.

One of the things I loved the best with my association with the WTC was helping quilters on the longarm machines.  I loved teaching, encouraging and helping them quilt their quilts on the longarms. I will be making my machine available for regular rentals for those who want to quilt on the longarms.

I will also be doing a bit of travelling on behalf of Central Sewing Machines (Edmonton) and Handi Quilter.  I will be doing some travelling and teaching at events in Western Canada.

I used to write patterns and want to renew that aspect of my life.

I love to teach quilting and sewing and want to continue to grow my teaching abilities and the variety of classes that I teach.

I love to sew clothes and want to sew more of my own wardrobe as well as open up my classroom/studio for opportunities for others to do the same.

I will be posting my teaching schedule on this blog and my Meadow Rose Quilting facebook pages.

So, there you have it folks!  The next step.
