When the LA Modern Quilt guild asked me to come visit them and host a few workshops, I was more than happy to say yes! I knew that they would be a fun guild to visit even if they weren’t in gorgeous LA.
When I told my husband that I was coming out, he graciously offered to come along with me….isn’t he such a sweetie. I am totally sure that it was because he wanted to support my quilting business and not because he was looking forward to hanging out at the beach while I worked.
The Santa Monica Pier was a lot of fun and we scored some souvenirs to take back to the kids, who are hanging out with Grandma while we are gone.
I also reached out to Allie at Robert Kaufman and asked if she would be willing to give me a tour of the facility while I was here. She was so kind and agreed to show me around. The first thing I saw when I walked in was the quilt I quilted for them.
Allie was great and it was so nice of her to take time out of her day to show us around.
But, of course, I am here to teach so I have spent the last couple of days teaching 3 workshops…..which of course I forgot to get pictures of! I thought they went really well. Everyone who attended asked a lot of great questions and I hope they left inspired.
Tomorrow, I am teaching 2 private lessons and giving a trunk show at their guild meeting. I think it is going to be the funnest day yet.
I just hope my poor husband can find something to do here while I am busy…..I am sure it won’t be a problem!
