2018 Aurifil Artisans and Teaching Update

Sometimes all the pieces fall into place at once. Yesterday Aurifil announced their 2018 Aurifil Artisans, and I am thrilled that they are welcoming me back for another year. It’s an amazingly talented bunch, and it is an honor to be a part of the group. You know that my machines and I love Aurifil, and I am grateful for their amazing support of the quilting community. It’s a great match!

Row 1: Yvonne Fuchs – Quilting Jetgirl, Kristin Esser – Simple. Handmade. Everyday, Vanessa Lynch – Punkin Patterns Row 2: Tish Stemple – Tish’s Adventures in Wonderland, Tighe Flanagan – Handmade by Tighe Flanagan, Wendy Welsh – Wendy’s Quilts and More Row 3: Trixi Symonds – Coloured Buttons

So what does being an Artisan mean? Well, it means that I am going to use their thread and talk about it. Since that’s what I would do anyway, you won’t really notice a change at all. There are no affiliate links that go along with it, just my honest feedback and opinion that I really enjoy Aurifil thread and the Aurifil company and staff.

Yesterday the Greenville Modern Quilt Guild (in Greenville, South Carolina) also announced that I will be giving a lecture and workshop with them in October! I am really excited and looking forward to being there. Note that registration for the workshop is first open to members of the Greenville MQG but opens up to non-members on July 1st, so if it doesn’t fill up keep an eye out for a reminder from me about that opportunity.

    Congrats, Yvonne! Aurifil would have been crazy not to have you back. I must say I was happy to see we were picture collage mates 🙂 It’s like showing up on your first day of school and seeing that you know someone.

    Hello Yvonne; I apologize for being way behind in my commenting. I have been working extra hard on creating a California King sized quilt for a very dear friend and also dealing with some health issues (no big deal). Congratulations for being an Auriful Artisan again this year! Plus, getting to teach another class. How exciting for you! Have you ever been to Greenville South Carolina? Traveling to new places and meeting new people has to be one of the fun rewards for teaching your patterns! I wish you the best of luck with so much fun to go along with it!! Have a great day!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
