The Sewing Summit!!, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Have you heard about this?! It's a modern sewing and blogging conference! It's being held in Salt Lake City, UT, this coming October! It's going to be so much fun! We are all scattered all over the country and the world, and it's going to be such a great opportunity to meet each other in person! And it's far enough away, that we can all save enough pennies to make the trip! There are going to be lots of speakers and classes on top of all the socializing!

I am very excited and honored to be teaching a class on fabric selection!! I AM SO EXCITED! Hope you can all come! :) For more info, check out their great website: Sewingsummit.com!

    Everything in this post is so pretty, I love the new header, love the teapot photo, and you're totally making me want to sew up my Folksy Flannels! BTW, a diet requires cheating every now and then so don't feel guilty:)

  2. oh! i wanted go to the sewing summit so badly.. but its too far away and sadly i can't afford the trip! its so exciting that you're teaching a class!! i'm really looking forward to hearing all about it!!

  3. Ack, you have a LQS. No fair! That looks like some yummy stash.

  4. wow, so cool you'll be teaching! and your photos look amazing. love the teapot shot and the fabric looks lovely, are those shot cottons on the bottom? :)

  5. Love your Oops moment! :) Still haven't had one since Jan. 1, but going to my mom's tomorrow and might be forced to go fabric shopping... mad at hubby, so maybe a self-pity binge is in order? :) Adore the teapot - so pretty in the snow! Getting ready to lay out the shower curtain on the design wall soon! :)

  6. I'm REALLY considering going to the sewing summit! How fun that you're teaching!

  7. I sooooooooooo (sew!) want to go the Sewing Summit! Does anyone know yet what the cost will be? I live in Provo, so the chances are good that I will make it (if the registration fee isn't too far out of my budget). :)

    love that yellow teapot!

  8. Not related to today's post, but did you see that Pyrex is offering free potholders that say I heart Pyrex? Go to Pyrex.com to order one, because I KNOW you love Pyrex.

  9. i'm so happy you'll be teaching at sewing summit!! that's awesome news, jeni.

  10. Love that pretty plaid sheet, it is all sorts of prettiness. I would love to go to the sewing summit. It is practically in my backyard!

  12. oooo....i love your flannels quilt! that one is gonna be cozy!

  13. That is so fun that you are teaching at the sewing summit! I'll be there!

  14. I am a recent 'finderer' of your blog, and I am already in love. I just have to tell you, that every time I see George I smile. So, does he have his own Facebook page? I would totally 'Like' him! ;)
