Episode 151 Behind the Scenes LIVE 

Getting ready for the Houston Quilt Festival and wanted to share what’s going to be happening in the Allbrands Booth.

I also show the unboxing of the Bluprint Quilting Box, because of the quality I will post another video on YouTube.

Brother Brand Ambassador Retreat in St. Joseph, Michigan

Brother Brand Ambassador Retreat in St. Joseph, Michigan

This week I hosted the first ever Brother Brand Ambassdor Retreat at my new studio in St. Joseph, Michigan.  A good way for me to finish unpacking and get the studio organized after that big move!  Did I mention I am never moving again!!! If so, I will invite all of you over to take my fabric 🙂  Winn and I worked non-stop to roll out the red carpet (or should I say blue carpet) for this creative group.  We started by installing the new sign and planting flowers.  Then onto the inside to unpack my party platters and rearrange the studio to comfortably fit everyone.  A quick visit to the Dollar Store added a touch of color with fun table covers, napkins, and disposable plates.  Of course, what party would be complete without beautiful flowers!  We even added fresh flowers to the bathrooms 🙂

You might recognize some of these ladies from It’s Sew Easy TV, along with my interviews on Sewing News LIVE.  Here is a list of the Brand Ambassadors that were able to attend:

We also went live on Facebook and of course technology went awry, probably all the creative juiced flowing in the room!  I took the liberty of editing out the blue screen and adding bloopers to the end of the video below.  (Please excuse the sound variations, I removed the worst parts.)

 

The group enjoyed the Boulevard Hotel located in downtown St. Joseph, overlooking the beautiful beach on Lake Michigan.  Dinners at The Buck Burgers & Brew, RyeBelles, Schu’s Bar & Grill, Bit of Swiss, shopping, and a touch of Chocolate from Kilwins.

Two full days of learning, sharing, and inspiring creativity for future projects wouldn’t be complete without a cheers at the end of the event.  Champagne and sparkling water does the job!

One secret, wait until you see the holiday project we are all collaborating on!  Sorry, can’t share yet 😉

Enjoy the video!  We shared quite a few sewing tips and tricks.

cheers,
