Modern Domestic

A few weeks ago, I shared that I'm teaching beginning quilting at Modern Domestic. What's that, you ask? Well, Modern Domestic is a local Portland sewing studio. It offers two fully equipped classrooms, a warm and knowledgeable staff, and a community of creative makers. They also host many classes and open sew times. Besides those draws, it is simply a beautiful space to work in and on amazing Bernina machines. 

Last Thursday, I taught my first class of a three session class. I was a little nervous to be teaching in a new venue. I kept thinking all day that I had the day and time wrong, or that I would arrive late. Does this happen to anyone else?! But alas, I arrived in plenty of time. I have four students who are a lot of fun and we had a great time getting to know each other while learning to quilt! Everything turned out really well, I'm excited to teach again this week. 

I'm teaching how to make a quilt from start to finish using this pattern for the top: 

Here are some of the fabric choices of a few of my students. Won't these look great?!

If you've thought about wanting to learn to sew garments or make a quilt, but something has stopped you, make sure to check out Modern Domestic! You'll become the  you thought you'd never be! ;) 


Glass Etching @ Portland Bazaar


The DIY class at the Portland Bazaar were a great success! Here's a peek into the Glass Etching class that Kate and I taught. It was such a fun time, my favorite part was seeing the creativity from our "students"! Thanks everyone for coming! It was such a joy to spend the afternoon with you.
