Rustic Rooster Quilt Shop, and what a fun day we had! I led two workshop sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Everyone arrived with their fabrics cut and ready to sew. I provided the pattern, a supply kit and lots of personal instruction.
I had spent a good part of the day scoping out the inventory and picking out the fabrics that I wanted to purchase.
I simply could not resist these yummy fabrics. Who remembers when everyone had one of these funky alarm clocks on the bedside table?
I picked up some trims and zippers for future projects.
But I think that I am most excited about my new Karen Kay Buckley Curved Scissors! I had a hard time resisting taking them out of the package before photographing. Karen's scissors are the best that I have ever found in all my years of sewing, and that's a lot of years! They are super sharp and even better, they STAY sharp. I have had my large ones for about four years and after tons of use, they are still as sharp as the day I got them.
Here is my KKB scissors family, all lined up and looking good. I love them all!
We had so much fun at our Thread Catcher Workshop that the shop owner, Trina, has scheduled me for another Workshop Day in July, this time on a Saturday so that ladies who work can attend.
I'm just spreading the love!
