Look out Quilt Week - Here We Come! May 01 2018 2 Comments


AQS Quilt Week Instructors - Spring Paducah 2019Margy and I submitted our instructor application in the Fall of 2017 and were delighted to learn that our proposals for a Beginning Ruler Work on a Domestic Machine and a Hand Sashiko class were accepted.

To say the least, it was surreal to see our names and photos (along with another Treasure Coast talent - Karen Marchetti) in the Paducah Instructor line up with the likes of Alex Anderson, Hollis Chatelain, Heather Givens, Marti Michell, Ricky Tims, Deb Tucker and Victoria Findlay Wolfe.  We were tickled!

And to add to that, Margy's Ruler Work class sold out in a record two days!  By March, my class was full as well.

The local newspaper, The Paducah Sun, reached out to Margy for an interview, and she was featured along with all stars Hollis Chatelain and Ricky Tims.

During the Instructor Briefing, we were also given the opportunity to sign up to film a short tip for Quilt TV which is produced by AQS for Quilt Week.  Filming took place early Friday morning in the Red Thread Studio booth.
