Countdown to MIU--Houston!

27 Sep 2006

Make It University/Make It U! will be making its debut in Houston this fall November 2 - 5 at the International Quilt Festival, and I just launched the webpage with the schedule of workshops and events. I'll be updating it weekly (at the very minimum) with more information on vendors, descriptions of the workshops, and other news.

You'll see a workshop called "Surviving the Runway: The Ultimate Creative Challenge with Cloth Paper Scissors."  You can probably guess where we're going with this, and it will be a lot of fun for both those who get in the workshop and those who can watch on the sidelines! (We're howling around the conference table as we plan this.) Be sure to bring your sense of humor!

I'll also be on hand every day in the Quilting Arts/ Cloth Paper Scissors booth to answer questions, give demos, and help demystify articles and techniques that may still be a bit mysterious.

I really can't wait for Houston to surround myself with all those beautiful quilts; I look forward to this every year.

Hope you'll join us!  Be sure to tell your friends, and I'll pass along more information as soon as I have it...

I cheered when I saw that I would be in Houston for the first time and will be there the day of the runway workshop. I just love "Project Runway" and was happy that they decided to have four designers this year. I can really see the potential for cloth art as well.

Wow! I'm glad to see the workshops repeated, since in Chicago it was so hard to choose which ones to go to and there were lines for some.

Yahoo! I just found out I'll be making my first trip to the Houston show and will definitely come by and say hi, and put my name in the lottery for Make It U!

The Houston show is one event I do not want to miss! I'm hoping to get in the Make it U/Runway workshop; but if I don't, I know there will be lots of other fun and inspiring work to marvel at! ~Sharon

Both your magazines are fabulous.I've just cut out my first quilt, a simple pattern, but I still use Quilting Arts and Cloth Paper Scissors for inspiration. You've lead me in places I never dreamed existed! THANKS!
