Teaching at Mixed Minded

Mixed MindedWorkshops

This is Mary Jo from Simcoe, at my workshop on May 28th at the Mixed Minded Conference in Kitchener's Holiday Inn. It was sponsored by the The Art House Studio and Karen Ellis. It was a fabulous weekend! I met great new people and had a wonderful time.

Here is one of the finished projects.

Karen is thrilled with her efforts. She belongs to a fibre art group in Cambridge.
I heard Judy from Selkirk really enjoyed her weekend. She also took workshops with my friend Sandra, of Open Studio.
 I did a mini trunk show to start, to show the students my background in fibre art. Then we got down to work learning the quilter's knot and other stitches. Michelle was persistent and finally learned the french knot. She and her mother were taking my class. Later in the afternoon, I took Nancy Donaldson's encaustic 101. I had a fabulous time working in a brand new medium! I wish I could have taken her wire and bead pendant class too. If you live in the area please visit The Art House Studio, Karen has some fabulous products, some I only have seen on the internet. I am hoping next year I will be asked back to teach at the super Mixed Minded!

Your students certainly look very happy so I am sure that they will ask you back. Sounds like you had a great time.
