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.”
– Elaine D, Vice President I, Manteca Quilters, Manteca, CA

Handle Pattern on it’s way….

Those of you that have attended a workshop or presentation/trunk show that I have given know how important I think handles are to the overall look and feel of a handbag.  My goal this summer is to complete my Poozles Handles pattern.

The Handles Pattern will include detailed instructions and diagrams for creating a variety of handles and attachment options.


Kits ready for Silkscapes at The Crocker Art Museum

Kits-are-ready I just put the finishing touches on the kits for my Silkscape class that starts this Thursday at The Crocker Art Museum. I have had a most enjoyable time going through all my luscious slik to select just the right pieces of patterned and plain silks to coordinate for the silk mosaic. I know we’re going to have a lot fun.

Crocker Art Museum, Silkscapes and Sewing Machines

Yes, it’s official – The fabulous Emma Moore, manager Studio Experiences at The Crocker, has 5 new Brother sewing machines for those attending my Silkscapes class to use during the course.  If you are like me and don’t enjoy packing and lugging your sewing machine around, this makes attending class very easy.

We are going to have a lot of fun in the class working with silk in all it’s glorious colors, learning new techniques and going home with a completed clutch!  silkscapes-web-4
