Meet the Teacher

Today was Meet the Teacher at my favorite LQS, The Olde Green Cupboard. This is a time where you get a chance to see the projects and quilt classes they're going to offer for the upcoming quarter. I'd been warned to arrive early and even though I arrived at the shop almost an hour early (and just 15 minutes after they opened), there were only 2 seats left! Two hours later and I had a whole list of classes I want to take.
Later this week all the quilt class samples will be hung on the wall.I I didn't get any pictures of the quilts for the classes that I want to take. My camera went kaput. I'm taking a technique class that will teach me a lot of new techniques (from Egg Money Quilts) and might take a 2nd one. I'm also going to take a binding class, Machine Quilting 101 and 102.
Sitting at the back of the room, looking at the class schedule I realized that my job is getting in the way of my hobbies. I need to find a way to quit my job, pay my bills, and give me the money to fund all my knitting and quilting.
AND....I'm going to a rug hooking expo next weekend! I need another fiber habit like I need a hole in my head but I *need* to go!

I have a hard time with my yarn habit, and the scrapbooking hasnt been touched in a couple years, except when the kids mess with it. I am doing well to follow my self imposed limit.

Incredible, how many people there are! I guess many of us want to be creative. Hope you can find a way to fund money and time for your hobby (LOL).

Great class picks, you will learn a lot. I always wanted to learn rug hooking too. One can never have too many yarn hobbies.

OMGosh, do I know you? I used to work at OGC. Heather is one of my best friends in the world. And I miss Aunt Vicki like crazy. Next time you go in, tell Heather, Michal said hello and that I love her.

These pictures almost make me cry. In fact, I think I will. I miss the OGC, more than words can say. Take more pictures next time so I can see what the store looks like now.
