I've done almost no teaching this year, as I'd thrown myself into classes to complete my professional designation. One way or another, it's all over October 4th when I write my first of two exams. I hadn't really gotten my head around teaching again, but when I stopped in at Quilter's Dream yesterday, Carol told me that a half dozen people had asked if they would run a Crazy Quilting class! I've given her a couple of days in October and November I'd be available to do it, so if you're interested, get in touch with them and let them know! I've suggested a two day workshop to really get people going on the wonderful embroidery stitches and embellishments you can do. Their #'s on the link, so I'd appreciate it if let them know if you're interested.
I get more out of ArtBizCoach.com every day as I spent the week catching up on Alyson's podcasts. A drive to visit friends in London was a big help, and I'm all caught up now. I ordered a copy of her book, "I'd Rather Be in the Studio" for a friend's daughter who just graduated with an art degree, and I'd encourage anyone looking to improve their art business to get Alyson's book.
I was at a beautiful wedding last weekend where I took lots of pictures of the bride (whom I've known since Kindergarten) and groom (who was in our grade 4 class!), but this is the one I'm posting - I thought this wall outside a great gallery called Artists Walk in Village Square in Burlington had great texture and I can see it incorporated into something arty in the future.
