Saskatchewan Stitches Conference Challenge Winners
Ten days, 250 participants, 13 instructors, 39 classes, a fabric challenge and 50 entries. Another fun conference was held at St. Peter's Abbey in Muenster, Saskatchewan and sponsored by Haus of Stitches and Wendy Toye from Humboldt, Sask. All of those sewers - mostly women and a few good men had another great time over the week participating in quilting, painting, bra, swimsuit and panty parties, painting fabric, stitching threads and yarn into scarfs and making wild dolls and even knitting. The work times were intense and the social times were great. Beverly Johnson gave her 'Uplifting' presentation at the gala evening and had the room of 100 people rolling with laughter. I had a day off prior to my teaching days so had a chance to sew on my project that I will present next year. My students were fabulous and creative. Every time I teach, my students amaze me with their creative ideas. I give them white fabric and paint and they come up with amazing work. Over this week I will post photos of my student's work. But today I will post photos of quilts of the winners of the fabric challenge - Beverly Johnson and Annette Schultz. Both of these creative women received prizes for their artworks. Congratulations to both of you!
