My first day in Basel Switzerland

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

I arrived in Switzerland early on Monday morning. As I wanted to stay up all day and then get a good nights sleep Astrid the owner of Cotton and Color and I went into the city of Basel. The weather was perfect and we walked and talked and did a little window shopping.  It was lovely to see the old buildings and cobbled streets.

I spent a little time at the store today Tuesday preparing for my classes and visiting with some of the customers. Cotton and Color is a lovely bright store full of color. Astrid had prepared some special little packages for the students in my classes which start tomorrow.

Creative Stitching


Many Months of Teaching

Saturday, April 25th, 2015

It has been a few hectic months with much travel, moving to a new facility, trying to get into the rhythm of all our commitments for 2015 and our introduction of new threads and books. I am so excited about all the new ventures we have in store for this year. I feel like all the hard work and commitment from all of us here at Sue Spargo Folk-art Quilts is really paying off. Many thanks to everyone involved I could not do it with out you.

Here are some great teaching engagements from past months with wonderful ‘Creative Stitching’ from the students.  I am sharing a visual of my travels. Here goes I hope you enjoy.
