It’s never too hot to be creative in Poozleland.

Northern California Quilt Council

Wednesday I am on my way to Pleasant Hill for the “Meet The Teachers” program with Northern California Quilt Council.  Each of us have three minutes to present our lectures and workshops to a room of up to 150 event bookers.  It is always inspiring to learn what other teachers are doing in this industry as well as being happy and grateful when I receive bookings for my work.

Please join me at this wonderful event.  Poozles is in space #23

I wanted to share this wonderful compliment from Elaine D, of the Manteca Quilters. A couple of weeks ago I gave a lecture/trunk show and two days later my New Yorker Handbag Workshop to the guild. I was especially happy with this booking because this is the second time they have booked me. What an honor that is.

“Pamela is a really good teacher. With terrific processes and a quick wit, she made our workshop a productive, educational and fun day. One of our “Pro” quilters rated her as Fantastic! Everyone left the workshop with their handbags virtually complete.”

New Brochure & NCQC

Brochure 2015 AS I have been preparing for my presentation at NCQC (Northern California Quilt Council) tomorrow I decided I just HAD to give my brochure a new look. Being inspired by Spring and the pansies on my deck I have added more color and changed out some pictures as well as text. I hope you like my new brochure as much as I.

Silkscapes Wall Art

Beneath-the-Seas This is a close up of my completed wall art featuring my Silkscapes technique.  I pieced 100% up-cycled silk pieces together, hand and machine sewed them onto a silk backing.  Then the fun part – embellishing!  I added Swavoski crystals, beads, pearls, cording and angel hair to bring the sea to life.  The full picture can be seen in the Gallery Section.

Flame Sculpted Flower Pins

Here is a picture bouquet of my flame sculpted fiber pins. These pins are lightweight and are a beautiful enhancement to a jacket, blouse, hat, handbag or whatever strikes your fancy. Yes, I literally burn the fabric edges over an open flame to bring in texture and to sculpt the fabric to a desired shape. Most of the pins are comprised of 12 – 15 layers of petals. I hand sew and lock stitched every three layers then finish them with a selection of Swarovski crystals and glass beads. I love doing these and with everything I create – no two are the same.
