My dear friend, Sue Spargo, and I have taught together on numerous occasions. We have also collaborated on several small quilts for these workshops. These have included whimsical houses and funky flower pots. Because of this collaboration I have been adding more and more wool to my work. Sue is well known for her contemporary folk art designs that use a lot of wool and cotton together plus oodles of creative stitching and embellishing.

Sue and I are scheduled to teach two workshops, one at the Stichin Post in Sisters and another through Santa Barbara Quilting Retreats in Santa Barbara, California. Check my calendar for the dates.
