What's the haps?

Hello dear reader.

I have updated my 2015 sewing and quilting portfolio. Check it out!

In other exciting news, my dear friend Trina Peterson and I are hosting a sewing retreat this year! We named it the Modern Stitching Affair and we're hosting it right in Madison, Wisconsin where we met. I give credit Trina for getting us into this. She was inspired by her experience at the lovely Sew South Retreat in North Carolina and wanted to bring some of that awesomeness to the Midwest. Here are the deets:

Modern Stitching Affair | Sewing and Quilting Retreat 
September 29-2, 2016, Madison, WI

Eighty attendees will sew and socialize together in a large ballroom in beautiful Madison, Wisconsin. Together, we will have plenty of free time to enjoy our own projects as well as work on three specially curated projects demonstrated by nationally known sewers coming in from Maryland, Arizona and Eau Claire, Wisconsin. 

Check out the projects!
