Exciting news!!!


I'm officially teaching two classes at CREATE retreat coming up in May! It is a retreat put on by Interweave Press, one of the nation's largest craft media companies in magazine and book publishing and several other things! Interweave Press publishes 19 magazines, 30 special publications, and has a boatload of books, websites, PBS t.v. programs and events. They are the publishers of my two favorite magazines, Quilting Arts and Cloth,Paper, Scissors! I'm incredibly honored to be chosen as one of the instructors for this retreat!

I will be teaching "One Page at a Time", my original single page book binding technique as well as "Torn and Stitched: A composition of bits and pieces". This is quite an adventure for me as I will be traveling to teach out of state for the first time! I'm beyond excited! I will be driving over and it will be my first ever long distance road trip where I'm driving! OK, I'm not so excited about this part as I hate road trips... especially to another state! Eek! But what is at the other end of the rainbow... well, it will all be worth it! I also plan to vend at the Artists' Faire so I will have my van loaded down!

I'd love to have you join me for this exciting retreat! The website goes live for registration early February. Stay tuned!

Hey, click on the CREATE button and check out a little bit of info about the retreat!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! This is so exciting, Angie! I'm so proud of you. You are such an amazing artist and more creative than anyone I know. I'm so glad you're "getting noticed" and that God seems to be providing some income for you using the gifts and passion He has given you. I'm so happy for you!

Hello Angie! Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog ~ it was so nice to hear from you! I unfortunately jumped the gun in my excitement, and posted my event a day early! Lisa’s asked that I remove my post until midnight (tonight), so just wanted to let you know that I’ve temporarily “withdrawn” my give-away, and will have to ask you to come back to re-enter when I’ve put it back online tonight. I’m so sorry for the confusion on my part, and I can’t wait to see what you end up doing for OWOH too! I’ll be over to visit you soon.
