Demonstrating Rit Dye Application for Quilting Arts TV

Susan Brubaker Knapp and Linda Friedman in Quilting Arts TV Studio
Sometime ago Rit Dye saw one of my blog postings in which I demonstrated a technique that I use with their concentrated, liquid dye products and the company asked if I would to do a demonstration for Quilting Arts TV.  Earlier this week I flew to Ohio and a segment for the Quilting Arts TV Series 1400 was taped with the greatest host, Susan Brubaker Knapp.  If you have not already done so,check out Susan's website, Blue Moon River.  It will surely delight your senses. The Quilting Arts TV Series 1400 in which my segment is scheduled to appear will be released in July, 2014.  What a grand time it was.  The entire staff was not only superbly professional but their welcoming friendliness was heartwarming.

Speaking of "warming", the Ohio adventure presented this Southern California native with snow.  Unbelievable as it may seem, I've never experienced snow firsthand, so  this was quite a treat for me.  When I arrived at the hotel, a wind had brought in the beginnings of a snow flurry.  When one of the hotel managers found out that this was a first for me, she rushed me outside and took a picture.  Any who live in areas that regularly have snowfall, will surely laugh because falling snow is barely visible in the photo.  Still, I experienced falling snow and I was elated.  Now, I'm home and fully appreciating our idyllic weather here in Vista, California.
Snow?  Honest, it really was starting to snow :-)
I will post more photos of the taping as they become available.  Until then, never fear to experiment!

"Appearance of Fall"

"Appearance of Fall"
I'm thrilled to share that my recent quilted, fiber art work, "Appearance of Fall" will be included in the Quilts on the Wall  "Appearances" exhibit at the 35th Glendale Quilt Show.  This annual show will be held for the first time in the Pasadena Convention Center on March 21 (10 a.m. - 6 p.m.) and March 22 (10 a.m. - 5 p.m.)

This promises to be a phenomenal show so if you are going to be in the greater Los Angeles area, try to take it in.  The convention center is located at 300 East Green Street, Pasadena 91101.
