I am really looking forward to teaching at this school---I will be teaching the 5 day session----so check it out!

August 2-4 takes back to Texas for the Angela Pumphrey workshop in San Antonio on the Riverwalk---one of my favorite places in Texas.   Contact me if you would like information.

September is a busy month with a Workshop at Shake Rag Alley in Mineral Point WI---sorry class is full with a waiting list.  The end of the month takes me to Long Beach CA to teach at the ATHA biennial---don't forget registration goes live on January 19th.



this is the pattern that  I did as a sample for the biennial---in the class the students will design their own paisley onto an 18 inch square of linen by using different templates that i will bring and then hook it in one of 4 color palates.

Here is my finished piece








October takes me back to Nebraska for a workshop at the farmhouse with Judy and Jan---always a treat!!!

And finishing up the year with South Central Teacher's workshop in Pottsboro TX.  If you are interested in information about becoming a McGown teacher and attending South Central, contact me.

Well that about wraps it up!!!
