Yesterday I took a working with wool class over at Primitive Gatherings in Menasha.
Oh I soooo Love that wonderful little quilt shop ~ they have soooo many beautiful bolts of fabric and wools ~ I just drool every time I go in there.
Any Who ~ I took this class and we had a blast ~ Lisa the owner of Primitive Gatherings was our instructor. It was so nice meeting her in person ~ I follower her blog and I visit her shop often, but have never met her.
This is the project that we learned in class ~
Daisy Table Mat ~ by: Primitive Gatherings
Such a wonderful project for spring!
There was so much to learn to make one of these mats ~ I hope I can remember everything she taught us. I'm very fortunate that if I have a problem I can take it to the shop to get help.
There was 12 of us girls taking the class and 3 of them came all the way from Iowa ~ how fun is that.
When we were done learning the basics and everything else ~ Lisa took us on a tour through their warehouse to see how they do everything from designing patterns, dyeing the wool and setting up booths for the shows. She also showed us where everything is stored for wholesale orders and retail orders ~ it was huge! I couldn't believe all the product they had.
Lisa let us browse through the retail section and if there was anything we liked we could purchase it for additional 10 percent off. Oh heck Yeah ~ I'm going to find something and something I did!!!
This is what I bought.
So yes I found a New Love!!!
I'm so glad I did!!!
Thanks so Much Lisa for taking the time out of your busy schedule
to teach us something new!
Today looks like it's going to be a beautiful day ~
The sun is trying to show itself.
The clouds are breaking up to reveal blue skies ~ Yippee!!!
The breezes are warmer today and the temp says it 50 out right now.
Oh it's going to be a Beautiful Day!!!
Not much else going on in this neck of the woods. I have some friendship bread I have to bake and then I want to work on my table mat before I have to go to work.
