A Year of Finishes - 2023, Special Events

A Year of Finishes: The Pivot

As John Lennon said:

After writing the series of posts about auditing my existing unfinished projects, releasing/donating some of those projects, and coming up with a plan to finish over half of the remaining projects in 2023; the Universe has surprised me and I have to suddenly pivot.

Seemingly out of the blue (but not really out of the blue), I received an invitation to teach a 5-day or 6-day art quilting workshop at an very awesome venue in 2024. It is a first-major-crafting-related-teaching opportunity absolute dream.

At this time I am not sharing where it is or what I will be teaching until my curriculum and program name is approved and my workshop appears in the venue’s catalogue. I will also share in the future the specifics of how this opportunity came to me.

But you all are welcome to attend my workshop which will be limited to ten (10) students. And it is in an awesome and kind of famous place in regards to crafting workshops. That’s all I got to say at this time (smile), more to come later in 2023 or early in 2024.

So my major pivot from working on those unfinished projects is that I need to work on class samples and my curriculum, etc. I do have an extensive training/teaching background but that is in the healthcare industry. This will be different than teaching health care professionals how to use software; or doing a new hire orientation – ha!

So that’s my news.

I am going to finish up one more set of those drawstring/project bags and quilting a gift table runner; but I put all the other unfinished projects away!

  1. That’s great

    See I knew something “art quilt” related would crop up and you’d be immersed in “art quilt” again. This time more in-depth as you prepare for this opportunity.

  2. Oooh, that sounds really cool! Congratulations! And in 5 or 6 days you can really dive into a subject and possibly even finish a piece. Sounds amazing. I think a lot of teaching skills are transferable but creating a good curriculum and samples is definitely time consuming (and fun).
