If you are a "regular reader" you know that I was invited to teach at Asilomar for the first time this year. It was truly an amazing experience not only from a teaching standpoint but as a newbie experiencing it for the very first time.

I was asked to teach again in February 2010 and received a call this past week to teach in April 2011...I'm still grinning!

For those of you who have been able to attend the Empty Spools Seminars at Asilomar you already know what a special place this is...for those of you who haven't been it might be time to think about attending! The facility is nestled right on the ocean and if you leave your doors/windows open you can hear the ocean all day/night. Students come from all over to spend a week with the teacher of their choice. All your meals/lodging are provided and there is a special program each night in Merrill Hall.

My Asilomar course caters to not only the beginning machine quilter but also the experienced quilter wanting to learn more! Each day is a totally separate class...i.e., 1st day is Beginning Machine Quilting, 2nd day is my Open Thread bar, 3rd day is my Design Workshop, 4th Day is my Linen Wholecloth Workshop and the 5th day we wind up with the Crazy Linen class. I have a full handout for each of the 5 days and you go home with a fantastic binder full of great information.

Please visit the Empty Spools Seminar website at There are some fantastic teachers that are coming so be sure to check out all the good information that is provided. Hope to see you there some day!
