Bernina Main Street Workshop

posted in: DD#2, Teaching | 7

Bernina Main Street workshopWe had another great “Making Faces” workshop today, organized by Lisa of Bernina Main Street. There was lots of cheerful chatting and laughter, so I think everyone had fun.

We had a very large class — 23 in all! I was SO thankful for DD#2. She’s a natural people-person, friendly, helpful, plus she has an art minor, so she was a terrific help and can really give some great advice. Because the class was so large, I spent a lot of time talking and mingling. A lot of people also wanted to see some of my own quilts, so the last 15 minutes or so, I used my projector to display a quick slide show of my work.

In all the busyness, though, I forgot to take pictures! If you were in the class, PLEASE email me pictures of your finished projects! I really would love to see them and include them here.

    Thanks for a fun class and for sharing your rare talent. I’m getting further with my piece, but had to stop and go to the fair. I’ll send you a pic when it is done. I was wondering if it would turn out for a while, but after I applied the third layer (after I was home) it started making sense! Yea!

    Maria, my trip to Dayton was most rewarding. I am euphoric knowing that I could do this and thanks a lot for teaching me how to do this. I have been following you through Quilting Arts magazine and when Bernina in Dayton announced you are going to have this class… I signed up right away. Thanks to Lisa as well.

    The Making Faces class was wonderful! I finally learned the tricks to making a portrait look real and recognizable. I am so excited to try another and my family is already suggesting ideas on who the next model should be. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and artistic ability!
