I'm happy to announce that I will be teaching again for Empty Spools Seminars, Session 3, 2020 and will be "Artist in Residence" for Session 2, 2020. The 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.
New for 2019... they are not on the market yet, but my newest verion of the Diamond TRIMplate gives you the option to make smaller (2" x 4") and larger (4" x 8") Diamond blocks as well as the original 3" x 6" blocks. There are two new Squares-in-Squares TRIMplates: one is for making 6" and 3" blocks, and the other is for 8" and 4" blocks - to correspond to the Diamond TRIMplate. The new design of these Squares-in-Squares TRIMplates makes it super easy to make Snail's Trail-style blocks as well. I'll keep you posted when these newest TRIMplates are available.
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 the3" Little SIS units. It sells for $10. (I have a limited number of these remaining.) This TRIMplate also makes a 3" "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).
