Getting Ready for Stitch Modern

I hang out with this great group of people who call themselves the East Bay Modern Quilt Guild.  Last year, we decided to have a little show where we could hang up our quilts and show our friends and family just how cool we are. We called the show, Stitch Modern.

Stitch Modern 2012
Everyone had lots of fun, so, we've decided to do it again!  Of course, even though we have had the past year to prepare, we all function much better under pressure, so we're still putting the finishing touches on the schedule...and on our quilts!  I just pulled mine off the longarm, so it still needs binding, and a proper photo shoot, but I'll give you a sneak peek.

My quilt for #StitchModern is finally on the frame!

The Stitch Modern opening will be on Saturday, February 2nd from 6 until 9.  If you live anywhere within driving distance, get there!  It's going to be a great time and the quilts are going to be amazing! (Don't believe me?  You can see pictures of some of the early entries on our Flickr page, as well as see all the fun we had last year.)

*Just a little post-script, because I don't want to make anyone jealous or anything, but congratulations to Margaret who won the Craft-A-Day book!  You'll be getting it soon, Margaret!!

Creativity Every Day in 2013? Yes!

Oooh!  I'm so excited to have the PERFECT give-away for the beginning of a new year! Craft-A-Day by Sarah Goldschadt makes it easy to work a little creative endeavor into every day.

The book is broken up into weekly themes, with a different activity for each day.

There's hexagon week, (for you hexie lovers!), gnome week, and triangle week, to name just three of my favorites.

To win a copy of the book, just leave a note below telling me your creative resolution for 2013.  Mine is to devote at least one day a week to making work just to please myself.  I'm pretty sure I made that same promise to myself last year, but this year I mean it!

Here's wishing you a creative and productive 2013!

**Unfortunately, do the the weight of the book, this give-away is only open to US residents.  Please make sure that an e-mail address is associated with your comment so that I can contact you if you win the book!  The winner will be chosen at random on Friday, January 4th.
