Are you ready for a fun Quilters Cruise through the Panama Canal? Join me and fellow teachers Ann Turley and Jan LaGrone for what should be a spectacular trip. We depart from Los Angeles on October 5, 2016 and end up in Miami, Florida on October 16. Contact Renee or Carlos Boozer at 702-956-1900 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and pricing. Here is a flyer you can download and pass out to your friends. I hope you can make it!
I'm happy to announce that I will be teaching again for Empty Spools Seminars in 2016 and in 2017. I'm doing 2 sessions: one session will be independent study, and the other will be my specialty, Storm t Sea. Each 5-day session gives suidents a chance to study in depth with one teacher. The location is spectacular, steps away from the Pacific Ocean at the Asilomar Retreat Center near Monterey, California. More information and registration is on the Empty Spools website: Empty Spools at Asilomar
What's New with books and TRIMplates ...
As of March, 2013 the original version of the book is no longer available from C&T Publishing. You can order an ebook or a print on demand softcover edition from C&T's website. The TRIMplates have also been discontinued by C&T. BUT... I have re-designed and remanufactured them and they are even better. Now there are 3 TRIMplates (one for each of the Storm at Sea component blocks) and each TRIMplate makes blocks in 3 different sizes. The set of 3 is $42, which includes a multi-page instruction booklet that replaces the outdated pages in the book.
If you already have a set of my original Storm at Sea TRIMplates, you will be happy to learn that there is also one available for making the Little SIS units. It sells for $10. (I have a limited number of these remaining.) This TRIMplate also makes a "kite-in-a-square" or KIS unit, which is not technically part of the Storm at Sea pattern, but it uses the same pieces as a triangle-in-a square (TIS).
Ready to design your own? You can download my Storm at Sea design grids to print out.
