Lynda.E of Kingaroy
the Reason for this story is the quilt that I will
be Quilting this week...this Lynda's first Quilt in
Lynda first met me at a little
market stall Called "The Handmade Expo"
here in Kingaroy about 12 months back
she was looking for an Embroidery Machine
and she was in Luck..I sell them... woo hoo
this was when I was just setting out on my Journey
of selling sewing machines...
"Extra Large learning curb there"
anyhoo...she took my card and we organised for her to come around and
see what it was all about...
as part of her new machine she also got 5 free lessons on how to use it
effectively...we had some fun as I was still "sew" new to the world of Embroidery
I was honest with her and told her that I had not had any formal training at that
so we embarked on a journey together to learn what to do...each week we did a different
project together...Lots of late night training for myself and asking forums and my Singer "Rep" on how to do things LOL....
we got there in the end ...Lynda was loving her new toy and was busy sewing and embroidering up a storm....
we came to the end of our 5 lessons, but Lynda was enjoying
the classes so much that she wanted to stay on and do some little projects
that we had going on in class...
Lynda was doing little projects that she was working on at home in class for a while...then
It was a Pattern that I designed back in 2010
called "The Bakers Dozen"
it was a small class of 4 people
but as time went on Life got in the way for the other 3 and they dropped out But Lynda kept coming every week :) Lynda was enjoying the class so much that she was doing
2 quilts at once...one in Class with me and one at home that
as we were doing some Christmas projects and Lynda really wanted
to meet more people that were doing things like she was doing :)
so she Decided to Join our Friday Morning classes
so now she was coming Twice a week :)
So now on Mondays she was working on "The Bakers Dozen" and that was the one that she was making her for father....we plodded along week after week
until the Christmas Break...we were almost there...and On Fridays we worked on all sorts of things in our Classes Called "Sit'n'Sew UFO's"...we did this right up to the Christmas Break....2 weeks :)
when we returned I set down for the Month of January all classes
finished and move on to a massive year of Crating :)
Lynda is still coming to Monday and Friday Classes
and has immersed herself into the quilting world and Culture
She has also Joined our "Mystery Quilt Club"
on Thursday nights :)
Keep an eye out for Lynda's "Bakers Dozen" quilt
all finished :) :)
all finished :) :)
Happy Quilting ") N
